It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! All eight of the new stamp sets, two Cutables and three fabulous new Cutups dies are available now in The Cat's Pajamas Shop. There are some free Cutables there too!
If you came from Lisa's blog, you are on the right path as she was first on the hop.
My project features the Card in a Box Cutables. I first cut the box from white cardstock and the mats from Pink Paislee patterned paper with my Silhouette and then assembled. I chose to cut the mats from double sided papers so I could use both sides. I stamped the various images and sentiments from the Simple Blooms set onto pieces cut with the matching Cutables using Simons Says Black, Stampin' Up Crisp Cantaloupe and MFT Sour Apple inks. I inserted these inside the box and them matted one of the floral images onto a piece cut with the Circus Panel CutUps for one of the flaps. The butterflies were from Doodlebug patterned paper using the new Butterflies CutUps. Although it looks all kinds of complicated it was super easy to make! There is lots of room inside the box to add as many elements as you want for a more dressy look.
And I love that it folds right up into an A2 sized envelope.
And did you know that the sale of the Card in a Box and Step Out Cutables for the next two months will benefit our very own Julie Masse. You can read about her adoption process here.
