Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Who doesn’t love the weekend?! I, as usual, have lots to do. I think if there were two of me I might be able to get everything done but I’m sure that most of us feel that way. My perfect solution would be never having to sleep again! Anyway, on to today’s post which was a birthday gift for my boss Nancy. It’s a card and a gift box that held an iPod nano. I love being able to make a box that perfectly fits whatever is going inside. The base of the card is Naturals White Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Pool Party with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. Again with my Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool, I know, I just can’t get enough of it. It gives that little extra detail that is nice and bold yet subtle at the same time. I used a piece of Real Red and Pool Party, flagged the ends and pierced both and added a piece of Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon to the mix and adhered them to the card with some Sticky Strip. The jar and lid are from the Friendship Preserves Stamp set and are stamped in Pool Party and Real Red. I used the coordinating Cannery Framelits Dies to cut them out. The hearts are Real Red and I used the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit to cut them out. They are all adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the One in a Million Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red, punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch and backed with a piece of Real Red punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. For a little extra detail I “threaded” a Brights Collection Designer Button with Whisper White Card Stock and adhered it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot. The box contains the same elements and I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to create it. I think Nancy liked the box and card more than the iPod and I hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you so very much for checking in with me today. Have an awesome Saturday! 🙂
