Note Card Box

Here's a project I did for the InStyle Stamps Method Monday challenge, which is being hosted by Jennie this week. (Great challenge, Jennie!!) I used this cute Whimsy Cup digital download from InStyle Stamps. The cool thing about digital images is that you can resize them, but the clarity stays the same. The cup I used on my notecards is smaller than the one I put on the box itself. I made my box a little wider, so I could put some coffee themed note cards in it. (Instead of 8 1/2 x 10, my paper is 8 1/2 x 10 1/2). I am very happy with how this project turned out. It will be a great gift for a coffee loving friend. I also added some envelopes that I stamped with some coffee mug images and sample packs of flavored coffee or you could pair the notecards with a Starbucks gift card for a fun gift.

I based the layout of my box on this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge. I will be creating a card to go with it that will follow that sketch a little more closely.

I used some Stampin Up retired Designer Series Paper, Cool Caribbean and GP White paper, Primas and some Candy Dots from Taylor's store.
