Gift Box

After making the Easter treat bags, I thought I would try making a gift box.
As the Easter weekend weather was mainly wet here in the UK, I spent yesterday
sorting my wood mounted stamps, which I have had for quite a few years, I also watched
Sam from Pootles YouTube video's on "box making"
This is my take on Sam's one HERE
She makes some fabulous boxes, bags and containers as well as
cards of course. It's certainly worth popping over to her blog to take a look.

I stamped on my measured piece of card using Versamark, before
following the scoring instructions. 
I'm fairly pleased with my first attempt, but there's definitely
a need for more practice!

The products I have used are:-
Stampendous wood mounted stamp - Q130 Fresh Bloom
Art Impressions Leaf stamp - AA-1382
Personal Impressions stamp - Just For You
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles and Scalloped Circles
Challenges entered:-
Alphabet Challenge - A for Anything but a Card
Crafty Catz - Use Old Stash
Star in my Pocket Challenge - Throw on the Flowers
Brown Sugar Challenge - Spring or Easter
Pammie's Inky Pinkies - Anything Goes
Heartful Stamping - Anything Goes + A Stamp
