I used to twist balloons professionally years ago. When kids would ask for a particular animal, I loved asking them 'what color?'.
I mean, a teddy bear does not have to be brown or black. It can be pink or purple or teal!
So with that in mind, I decided to use three sets of marker colors for this gift card assortment: mauves, greens and yellows. And I let the colors fall where they lay.
Six (6) Key Lime Memory Box cards and envelopes were used; two images per card and envelope. Lockhart Stamp Company's La Fleur Couture images were used here.
After creating the cards quickly using Nestabilities dies and coloring the images with Copic markers, I tied white gossamer ribbons on each card and ended with a knot. For a handy knot-tying video, here is Val creating her signature knot!
I decided to gift box these six cards and envelopes. I created a template for Splitcoaststampers a few years ago that I use frequently. This template will house six A2 sized cards (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") and envelopes. If you can not access that link please use this one for the template.
Using Crate paper (retired?) I followed the template and quickly created a nifty gift box! Timesaver tip: try using a double sided cardstock for this gift box.
A BIG SECRET: I sell Basic Grey magnetic snaps in the store. I am going to tell you how I save a few bucks when using these handy accessories! Only use one - and use a brad or brads as the other magnet!
You can see what I am talking about in this interior photo of the gift box - the splayed shanks of the brads create one magnet, and only one Basic Grey magnetic snap is the other magnet - a nice, secure closure.
Hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
