Thank You Card Box

This box features the stretchy ribbon belly band from the last post. I think I slid the belly band up a bit after taking this photo. I really enjoy making boxes, this one is rethank you card boxally easy; it fits a set of 10 4.25"x5.5" cards and envies. I will post a how-to later. I cut the box lid according to my custom measurements then stamped the box lid with pretty in pink ink on pink pirouette CS with the word stamp from Natural Beauty. This has to be one of my favourite stamps of all time. Starting in the top left corner, I stamped it first horizontally, then vertically and repeated the pattern all over the box. This makes a great background, I have used it before on cards too. Then I assembled the box with red line tape. The box bottom is plain chocolate chip CS, you really do not see any of it anyway so I didn't stamp it. The tag is made from my NEW NESTABILITIES! Yeah! The lower layer is chocolate chip CS, the upper is whisper white. The stamp is one of the first I ever bought, from Hero Arts I think. I inked it in pretty in pink then traced over the center thank you in rose red. The ribbon is retired SU!, the pearl is from the Pretties Kit.
