Card Box - Cottage Cutz Baby Cradle

Recently I had the opportunity to make up a few thank you cards for a friend who is pregnant.  After making the cards (see separate post) I needed a box or container to pop them into.  I purpose made this box measuring the envelopes and amount of space required for the cards and, using the Scor-it, just did a simple box (closed on 3 sides) out of a sheet of 12 x 12 card stock from My Mind's Eye.

The decoration is from dies by Cottage Cutz - Baby Cradle and Stork Banner, sponged with Distress inks Tea Dye, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo. The tab at the top was made using a 1" Stampin up Circle punch.

Thank you card

I made 5 of these cards to go into a gift box for a friend who is having a baby.  When looking for a design I went for a simple card with a touch of softness.

The sentiment is a Cuttlebug one and was die cut using Stampin Up Apricot Appeal card stock.  The ribbon is also Apricot Appeal and it was threaded through a Marianne D Ribbon 1 die.  The die cut behind that is from MFT and is called Bookmark Duo.
