beauty lies within

expressing self by creating

typography idea September 5, 2007

At this past SU! convention, I saw these cute little 3″x3″ cards created (also on the cd if you have it).  I thought, what a cute idea for gift, class, or just to have cards on hand that cover every possible card giving reason.

define your life set

STAMPS USED:  Define Your life & Priceless stamp sets.

PAPERS USED:  Kraft, Wild Wasabi, and Purely Pomegranate cs; Soft Sky Prints DSP. 

INKS USED:  Wild Wasabi & Versamark pad.

ACCESSORIES USED:  Silver Brads; Ice Rhinestone Brad; Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon; On Board Lots of Letters; Spring Flower Bouquet Punch.

CARD SPECS:  3″ x 3″ Kraft; 1″ x 2″ Wild Wasabi; 1-3/8″ Circle Punched Soft Sky Prints DSP. 

I created the box to hold all 26 cards.  I updated this post due to some requests for the box pattern…and here it is.  If looking at this pattern, this is actually the outside of the box.  You’ll want to flip it over so the sticky stip flaps can fold on the inside (so the little half-inch flaps are hidden inside).  Decorate however desired
