Fabulous Friday - The Gift Box

Happy Friday everyone.

And yep I know it's April Fools Day, but I have no fool for you :-)  I hope you don't get too many fools played on you today.

Andy and Shannon leave this morning.  I will be worried until they let me know they have reached their destination.  Off to Northern College for their Open Day, to check it all out.  Ready for going in September and starting her new adventure as a student Veterinary Technician :-)

Anyways, back to today's post.  Throughout this week I have been showing you sets of two cards, to make a total set of six.  Of course, I had to make a gift box for them and HERE is the link to the tutorial on my blog for this box.

Using the same papers as the cards, with a base of ivory coloured card stock.

I have inked all the edges of all the layers, I think it makes them pop and finishes off those edges.

I really love the detail on these butterflies.

I love the colour combo, never used green and purple before.  All six cards and envelopes fit nicely in the box.

There you have it, another finished set of cards.

Now, this weekend we are having a launch party over on Facebook for a new Polkadoodles release. Just as I fall in love with one collection, Nikky pulls out all the stops and I fall for another one.

So why not join us over the weekend.  Polkadoodles Crafting Page on Facebook, the Design team will have lots to share :-)

Thanks for stopping by today, see ya tomorrow ;-)

Happy crafting.
