Card making, Craft

Box of cards and all things nice.

One of my colleagues at work is leaving soon. She often forgets Birthdays and comes to me last minute to buy one of my hand-made ones, so I thought it would be nice to make her a box of cards to take with her to her next place. As it is usually the girls in a place that give cards, I was thinking girly so it had to be the sugar and spice CD ROM by Crafter’s Companion that I reach for.


I made the magnificent mailing box from the big score video CD ROM and my big score using lilac centura pearl to put all my 6″x 6″  cards in. I printed off some of the frame cards, which have two toppers and embellishments per sheet and found some 6×6 pastel paper. I then cut all the pieces out.


I matted and layered all the cards together and added the embellishments. I only added the sentiment to one, but added red liner tape to the back of the rest. These sentiments will then fit in the front of the box and my colleague can choose to add them to her cards if they are appropriate.

I finished the box off by adding a topper, matted and layered with pink centura pearl for extra strength and added the coordinating embellishments.


I would like to enter this into the following challenge – Let’s go Lilac

I hope both you and my colleague like these cards. Let me know what you think.

Keep it Crafty!
