For those family members that are not 'cardies', I made up some of my favourite cards from the past few months and gave them and some envelopes as a Christmas gift. This is the box that I made to put them in.
Stamps: Priceless (116402). Card/Paper: Whisper White (106549), Chocolate Chip (108599), Ruby Red (106572), Candy Lane DSP (113980). Ink: Ruby Red (102259), VersaMark (102283). Accessories: Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (109051), White Embossing Powder (109132). Tools: Scallop Circle Punch (109043). Horizontal Slot Punch (105089), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).
This box is based on a pull-up treat holder but, instead of a pouch, it is a thin box. You don't undo the ribbon at the top, but pull it up and out pops the cards (or anything else you put in there).
Inside are six cards, two each of three different designs, plus matching envelopes. I have found this to be a great way of packaging cards and adds a bit of flair to the gift. I have stamped this box using stamps from Life Definitions ("just because" is a good reason for giving cards!) and Priceless stamp sets.
In January we will be making Valentines Pull-up Treat Holders for chocolate bars using this stamp set but, instead of flowers, we will use the heart image from Priceless.
