JUGS #112 - 3D / Template Challenge

Howdy all! There's a new challenge over at Just Us Girls and I'm the hostess :)

This week, the challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a set of cards and a matching holder / packaging! Fun, right?!

I went simple for my cards, something slim and easily packaged...

I actually used a snowflake die to cut a piece of sheet magnet (the kind you can run through a printer). Then I inked up the snowflake with white pigment ink and stuck it to the PTI linen impression plate. I then laid a piece of kraft card stock carefully on top and ran it through my Bigshot. Volia! Pseudo-letter press! The idea is not my own - there's an awesome tutorial by Julie Ebersole on Ellen Hutson. Love this look and will be trying it again :)

Here's the group of cards - I went with more jewel tones for the card bases and sentiments for a bit more contrast.

Now, onto my packaging… I recycled an acetate stamp box. I have a TON of these, can't throw them away (swear, I'm not a hoarder :)). I made a few cuts and adjustments to fit my cards and envelopes. I forgot to take pictures step by step but I will do it soon to show you my process.

I started with a thinner acetate box…..

And ended up with this….

I finished off the box with purple ribbon and another die cut snowflake to match :) I punched two holes in the snowflake and ran the ribbon through it, tied a bow and done!

Hope you like my project!

Let's see what the rest of the talented JUGS DT has whipped up!!!
