Pumpkin box or that's what it said!!

I came across this template for purchase while visiting My Favorite Things website It is labelled as a pumpkin box but I think you can turn it into whatever your needs are. I thought this would make a very nice baby box for a ceramic ornament. I distressed the edges with broken china distress ink from Tim Holtz and put a velum scalloped flower on the top. Otherwise, I left it quite simple. Imagine if you wheeled over the cardstock with stamped images or used heavy designer paper. This was very simple to put together. I printed the template directly onto baja breeze cardstock from SU! Then all you do is cut and score and tape. And if you have a nifty template cutting machine, it would be extremely easy. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.

SSNOTIME 158 Butterfly kisses

Isn't this just the most beautiful wedding dress ever!! Here is the inspired by this and make something of your own. Here is my take.

Just bought a pad of designer paper by K + Company...OMG!!! I love all the papers. I made this card in vintage-style. I used distress ink vintage photo from Tim Holtz on all the edges. It really makes the colours look so rich. I used Clear Dollar Stamps "Beautiful Butterflies" for both the image and sentiment. All the non-DP is SU! The antique brad is also from SU! Love it!! The crotchet lace is actually my surprise find at the dollar store. I coloured very vanilla satin ribbon from SU! with my copic marker to get the right turquoise colour (B05). Hope you like it. TFL.
