A Great NEW Card Box Set! Love this one!!!

I got the idea for this box after seeing boxes made using SUs Big Shot scallop envelope dies.  I liked the look of those smallish square boxes and really wanted to make an A2 sized card box to hold card sets.  So this is what I came up with.  It's super easy to make and I will be doing up a template that may be available possibly later today or tomorrow.  It will be available as a freebie with purchase of a handmade card.

When I have my Scallop Box template and instructions drawn up, I will be adding it to my list of available templates.  You can find the details on my sidebar HERE .  I will also include the dimensions for the cards you see in this set as well.

This set I made is totally CTMH meets SU.  I couldn't help myself with their punches, so I made a necessary purchase.  As some of you may know, I'm a punch addict!  lol  And this paper pack I used isn't bad either...  ;)  This box easily holds 8 cards plus envelopes, and even has room for more.

The CTMH A Little Everything stamp set I used is actually not available until March as a Stamp of the Month.  But it is so versatile and has sentiments for everything from Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, to Canada Day (I'm sure the US version has 4th of July), birthday, and much more.  Love this "must-have" set!

Supplies used:
CTMH Stamps:  A Little Everything, Save the Date, Cholcolate Alphabet Sm, True Friends (January SOTM), Spot on Backgrounds
Paper:  White Daisy CS (CTMH), Real Red & Chocolate Chip CS (SU), Sending Love DP (SU)
Inks:  Real Red & Chocolate Chip (SU)
Punches:  Two-step Bird (SU), Scallop edge (SU), Boho Blossoms (SU), Full Heart (SU), Heart (Martha Stewart), 1/2" circle (EK Success)
Embellishments:  Dark brown ribbon (Walmart); Chocolate bigger brads, White Daisy brad, Chocolate mini brad (all CTMH)
Adhesive:  Tombo Mono Multi (LSS), 3D foam tape (other)

I love your scrapbooking talents. I visit your blog VERY often.
How do I go about getting the instruction for scalloped edge card box Topstitch??

I LOVE your creations! I sure wish CORP. would listen to us and get us some great punches like SU has. THEN we wouldn't be FORCED to venture over to the "other side" for things we need. I am about to buy some punches from SU to add to my collection too. If they would listen to us and get us some dies, punches and embossing folders oh we would all be SO happy! Don't know why they can't get us some... I think they would sell- consultants would buy them all up! Ha ha!!
Have a great day!
