Gift Box with Cards

This is a monogrammed card box with 10 matching cards, taught to me by my upline Wendy, that I made for my dear friend Abby. Her favorite colors are blue and green. I was so pleased that it arrived to her safely (Alberta to BC) and that she really liked it. This was a bit out of my comfort zone since I don't much like making anything other than cards.

This is an invitation that I did last summer for a Bar-B-Que we were having to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our new house.

The sets used were Backyard BBQ and Bunch O' Bugs from Stampin' Up. I embossed the red checkerboard to make it look like a plastic tablecloth and stamped the ants in black. The "cooker" was stamped in Encore Silver Metallic. I used punches for the gloves and used dimensionals to pop-up the bottom one.
