Video: Box To Fit C6 Cards and Envelopes

Hello again! I have another project video today - a beautiful gift box that fits C6 cards and envelopes in it, made using Stampin' Up!'s fantastic Envelope Punch Board. I hope you like it! 

 The box fits the four cards I showcased in Friday and Saturday's blog posts, though you could use it, instead, to pop in a single, heavily-decorated or decoupaged card that is too thick to fit into a standard envelope.
The belly band uses some of the gorgeous free Designer Series Paper from the Sweet Sorbet pack, which you can get free during Sale-a-Bration (until 31st March 2014). The ribbon is the lush Ruffled Stretch Trim (otherwise known by some of my customers as knicker-elastic) - and the colour is Crisp Canteloupe - despite me insisting on calling it Calypso Coral in the video! Full "ingredients" are listed in the table at the foot of this post.
If you'd like to find out more about Sale-A-Bration, and how you can get your hand on free goodies, just click here and you'll be taken to the page you need on my website. It's easy to contact me if you have any questions, just drop me an email at

Banner Blast Card Set - Part Two

Yesterday, I shared with you two cards from a set I made using one of the gorgeous free stamp sets you can get hold of during this year's Sale-A-Bration. Here's another one.

And this is the final one in the set.

The Designer Series Paper used on this card is also available free, it's part of a bee-yoo-tiful pack called "Sweet Sorbet" and you can choose it free with a purchase of £45 (60 Euros) or over. Got to love free pretty paper!

On Monday, in my weekly video slot, I'll be sharing with you how to make a lovely box using the fabulous Envelope Punch Board, which is specifically sized to fit these four cards (all C6-size) and their envelopes. I hope you can join me then.

(All the products I've used in this set are shown at the bottom of this blog post. Click on each image to see further information about that product)
