Tues. Nov. 23, 2010 Note Cards and Box

After making the candy box (yesterday's post) I was inspired to make another project, which will make a nice hostess gift.

I made the black box, just a tad larger than A2 cards.  Using Gina K ivory cs, I die cut the base, and then a piece of dp.  I sponged the edges with Antique Linen distress ink.  I then die cut a circle and a scalloped circle.  The scalloped one was run through my CB with the Dotted Swiss folder.  I ran a black marker around the edge of the plain circle, and then stamped the chandelier from Nina's Fine Furnishing stamp set.  The sentiment is from her Lovely Shelf set. I topped it off with a pretty black bow.  I love the elegant look of this box.
I made 4 note cards to coordinate, stamping with a Tim Holtz Weathered Textile stamp and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and the sentiment from Nina Lovely Shelf on Nestie tags, with threaded black ribbons.
Here is the whole set.

I really would love to know what you think about this set. Thanks for stopping by.
