A Sunday Giveaway

Hello friends
This project appeared on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog yesterday so
sharing it here today.
It is a matching card and gift box.
Both feature the beautiful Create A Gerber Daisy and the box is created
with Square Bracket Edge Box die template (I admit it...a big favourite of mine!)
I've embossed the lid using Impressabilities, it is a nice touch and so easy to do -
just remember to place your Impressabilities under your die template when
you emboss, you don't want the cutting edge going through it :)
I dug out my Edgeabilites too - I love the Ric Rac design.
I placed photo corners on the patterned paper, another fad I'm having right now!
We create projects like this at the Spellbinders Intermediate classes in the shop
and I have a complete kit to give away, that's both the card and box.
All the components will be included pre-die cut, so just a case of assembling the projects.
All you have to do is leave a comment and Elliott will pick out the winner next week.

And if you are in the swing of leaving comments, please feel free to
pop over to the Crafty Power blog.... the link is here.
Thank you!
Take care friends and hope you are having a great weekend.

What a lovely project, Christine.
Really like the way you have embossed the lid, too and the reminder to use the Impressabilities under the die!

PharmacyMichele said...

Lovely project. I wouldn't be without my box die, you have just reminded me that I have the ric-rac edgeabilities die, must use it again soon.

Christine Harrop said...

Fabulous project. I've always loved the bracket edge box and use it so much. Haven't used my edgers for so long - I think we crafters probably have too much stash! As if !!!!!

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, This sample is stunning, and I love your compilation. Thank you for reminding us about embossing with a die in the sandwich, when I do this I always take my time to make sure haha !! I have a magnetic shim from my Ebosser with a beautiful border cut into it because I didn't take my time when die-cutting haha, so whenever I am embossing with a die now, I always take my time to make sure !!
Have a lovely day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good Sunday morning Christine,
Such a pretty card today, I love it's simplicity too, your projects always let the gorgeous papers 'do the work) they aren't hidden beneath loads of frilly bits!
My husband threatened to send you a photo of my craft room yesterday, after I had been crafting for a good 3 hours! Making a 'baby shower' card for somebody at the bank where my daughter works, Where does the time go when you are absorbed in your projects! Anyway as time went on so did the mess and comments "why don't you put things away as you go along" etc, well I ended finishing the card on the seat of a stool as it was the only free space, I will tidy up today!😉
Well thanks again Christine for giving me a 'virtual reminder' of how it should be look!
Mrs B I am really looking forward to you coming over, seems like ages since we met up, although my bum has just about recovered!
Big hugs
Sandra xxx
Ps good luck to all (for the give away)😜

Hi Christine, what a pretty project! Love your design and colours - also get excited about using some of my older dies as using them in a new way brings much satisfaction!

Love, Belinda. X

Kim Hook said...

I love the idea of matching the present and card - and your design looks lovely and fresh.
I'd really appreciate the chance to see how the die cuts go together as I've often looked at the box die set and wondered how easy they would be to assemble.
Thanks for giving us the chance to win and try it out.
