Easy Elegance Note Box

This was a lot of work...but well worth it...a chip wood box with a set of eight note cards.

I painted the box Burgundy...let it dry a little ...then lightly painted black paint over the Burgundy and wiped it off while it was still wet...when it dried I stamped the floral image onto white card stock...then I applied clear varnish onto the lid of the box.

I lined the inside of the box and the lid with this really nice Burgundy, gold, and green stripped paper.

The card on the left is a thank you card...the other is an all occasion card.

The card on the left is a birthday card...on the left is a thank you card.

The card on the left is an all occasion just a note card...on the right is another happy birthday card.

Both of these cards are all occasion cards.

This is the recipe:

Stamp sets: Easy Elegance, Terrific Tags, Too Terrific Tags, (retired from stampin' up)...Happy Birthday sentiment from MSE, and Just a Note sentiment from Endless Creations.

Card Stock and Papers: Assorted and scraps from Stampin' Up, ACMoore, and Michael's.

Inks: Always Artichoke.

Markers: Assorted colours.

Additional Accessories: snail adhesive, spritzer tool, single stitch true thyme ribbon(retired), chip wood box from Michael's and gold cording.

All supplies are from stampin' up unless otherwise noted.

Remember October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...don't forget to schedule your mammogram.

Thank you for stopping by...have a great day and a stampin' good time.
