Priceless Box and Card Inkspirations

Two more projects from my FABULOUS friends and sideline demos Card Craze event held on Oct. 6, 2007. Tina Moore designed this Card Holder box. It is made out of SU! card stock in River Rock, Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip & Purely Pomegranate. What looks like ribbon is really folded card stock - pretty cool, huh? And how about the use of the Word Window Punch (Fall/Winter Collection 2007 pg. 182-83) to make a slarge slot to secure the flap and keep the box closed? The 5/8" Choclate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon (pg. 190) is a perfect touch. The color is so rich it makes me want a piece of chocolate! :) Debra Burgin designed the Journey card. It uses River Rock, Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip & Mellow Moss. The horse image comes from the Wanted Stamp Set (pg. 88), the journey image comes from the Define Your Life Stamp Set (pg. 159) and then there's the Flannel Plaid Background Stamp (pg. 137). The strip of Chocoalte Chip card stock was peeled apart to create a Faux Suede look. Although this design isn't strictly masculine it works really well for it. Creating masculine oriented designs is a challenge for most of us - this card fits the ticket perfectly! My favorite part of this card, though, is the notch/closure. Where? you ask? The card cover has 1" cut off the end, and a notch made by our 1 1/4" Circle Punch. It is then tucked under the Scallop Circle Punch and Star (both on pg. 182-83) embellishment to hold the card closed. LOVE IT!
