Happy Tuesday, peeps! Doesn't it feel like Monday? Labor Day always messes my schedule all up! Anyway, my friend Michele has been making these amazing box cards using Shari Carroll's YouTube video (which you can see HERE, and you can see Michele's blog with her amazing creations HERE). SO....I made up my mind to give one a shot and it was a lot of fun, and easier than you might think! So here is my first attempt using Toile Christmas:
All images were stamped on Whisper White cardstock, colored with Blends and diecut with the Christmas Cardinal Dies. I randomly stamped the branch on the Crumb Cake card with Sahara Sand ink and lined the inside with Shaded Spruce DSP. Here's a side view so you can see the "box"; it folds flat to fit in a standard size envelope, too!
The pretty sentiment banner is part of the set too....even though the images in this set are large, they're easy to color and not intimidating at all! And they'll be available tomorrow!! Woohoo!
Thanks for popping in today!
Sunday morning before it got hot, I was in the garden picking (more) green beans, and I heard a "whoosh" and looked up to see this:
Over the years, we've seen a couple of balloons fly over, but it's been several years since we've had any, so it was really fun to see! And it was a perfect day for it!
