Wow, what a hoppin' 100th challenge party we had the last two weeks, with 227 entries! Some serious inspiration in the gallery, if you haven't gotten a chance to check it out yet. This week the challenge is to stamp on Designer Paper.
I started out with the floral stamp from CAS-ual Fridays Loving Thoughts embossed in red glitter on a subtle, damask-like paper. At first I was going to thread this really funky red fiber through the centers of several of these and make a garland. I was annoyed getting them to hang evenly, so laid it down on the blue paper and it kind of looked like a funky necklace. A tweak here and there, and I ended up with a jewelry box card.
Here's the front. The mat stack die is used as an impression on the top of the box. The sentiment is embossed in silver from Only You. Simple, just like a presentation jewelry box.
Then upon opening the "box" you see the necklace on its lining. A hold punch is used to notch out holders on the top to dangle the necklace on.
Since I wanted to get a ton of dimension for the box, I mounted the panel on two layers of cardboard. The spine is scored 1/8" thick, so it accommodates this dimension when folded shut.
I was still a little unsure how to finish this card (just what is its purpose?) and was going to leave it blank for now. Then I came across the Moxie Fab gift card holder challenge. That's it!
I cut out a panel to mount on the top-inside of the box for a gift card. Then got excited thinking how cute this would be for a teen girl birthday present! Stick a Charming Charlie's gift card inside, especially since this is the type of costume jewelry they sell, and you're all set.
Don't forget to head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge to see the rest of the design team inspiration, and play along in the fun!
