Rose Book marks

These are 2 book marks I made for my craft show next week.  I made them in the same theme as my swap cards for my team meeting tomorrow.  I will post those cards after the meeting since some of my team members follow my blog and I don't want  to show my hand.

Each Basic Black book mark, 2 by 5", the top of which is punched with the scallop top tag punch.
The images were stamped and colored on a 1 3/4 by 4 3/4"  piece of Whisper White cardstock. The Roses were colored with Powder Pink, Rose Red and Real Red; the stem and leaves Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.
The background  was stamped in Sahara Sand and the sentiment in Black Memento.

A 1/8" strip of Real Red cardstock was adhered to the top and bottom of the art piece.

Ribbons at the top of the tag -Retired Rose Red Chevron and1/4" Real Red cotton ribbon.

Designer Card for Box in a Card

Yesterday I made 4 cards in a box but since they obviously couldn 't fit into an envelope, I designed a box to put one in.

The completed box has a base and a lid with a cut out area covered with window sheet. The colors used coordinate with the colors of the card.  A ribbon tied around the box keeps the box closed and provides a bit of decoration.  Around the ribbon is a tag.

The card base is Kraft card stock with a 1" piece of DSP attached around its base.
Dimensions of the box:  10.25 by 8.75 inches scored at 2 3/8" all the way around

Dimensions of the lid:  7 1/8 by 8 3/4" scored 1 1/4" all the way around.

Before assembling the box, a rectangular opening was made using the Big Shot and a large rectangular framelit.  If you don't have a framelit, an exacto knife could be use to cut the opening 5/8" from the edges. A 3 3/4 by 5 1/4"piece of Window Sheet was attached to the inside of the lid.

A tag was  made from the remnant left from the notch made in the card for the box.  I added some card stock and DSP on the top, punched a hole in the corner and attached it to the ribbon surrounding the completed box..
Above is the card placed in the box.

Box in a Card

What a neat way to give a card and a present at the same time!!

Design a top folding card, make a notch in one side, and make a gift box to fit in the notch.  Perfect!

I have had  lot of fun making these unusual cards.

I purchased an "all rights reserved"  tutorial from Becky Robert, called  "Twelve Days of Christmas 2016" so I can't share the dimensions of the various card parts or how to put it together.

One thing I can share with you is how I made a box with a see through lid to hold this card,  because obviously it won't fit into an envelope.

Card 1:

The card base is Kraft cardstock with a Whisper White art piece matted with Berry Burst card stock. The stamped images are from "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" with "Timeless Texture" providing some background interest.

The box is made with Foil Frenzy DSP with a Berry Burst lid. On top of the lid is the cute miniature gift bow.

Now, remove the box from the card------

Card 2:

This time I switched up the color to Lucky Limeade to coordinate with the color in the Foil Frenzy DSP.
The images are from "You Move Me"

I will post details about the box tomorrow.
