Gift_box_and_matching_cards_with__2 Howdy girls: I  am shocked that I   was able  to finally  get around to making one  of these adorable boxes   that my bestest gal ANGIE sent me  the  template  of  way back in May  right after my knee replacement  surgery  REMEMBER ?( Oh my  it  has been  a long time  for that cute  pattern  just  sitting there waiting for me to  use it ) This past weekend   I made this set  and  I  sooo wish I knew how to share this box  template with all of you  But I have no clue  how to do all that  since I just traced her template out onto  the Pretty in pink 12×12  cardstock  and cut out .. sorry ..  maybe one day  ANGIE or I will figure out  how to  make templates  on our computers .. anyway .. I used the new   SNOW BURST  stamp set  from Holiday  Collection Mini  with pretty in pink  and whisper white cardstock  along with brushed  silver card stock . I also added  silver cord  with the pink gingham ribbon  also . I  stamped on the pretty in pink with the white craft ink pad  and then on the whisper white I stamped in pretty in pink ink .I  also  made the  2 matching cards  to go into  this cute box  using the  HOLIDAY & WISHES  set for the Merry Christmas saying   in  Black ink  .. I just love the way it all turned out ..   Thanks for  peeking in today and Thanks  you  sweet pea for this  awesome Box template and  your  wonderful sample  you gave me with all those other  goodies   ( Love ya ). Hey did you notice my new watermark I made last night I so love this one ..  and  really love my photo shop elements  5 ..

Updated : Jan Tink & Dawn Easton  offered to help  make the  gift box template  Thank you  girls sooo MUCH!! HERE IT IS

I will see you all tomorrow .

Until later …. Happy Stampin!!!
