Bodacious swing card and gift box

Heres a couple of things Ive been making with my favourite stamp set which unfortunately is retiring at the end of this month. It is one of the sets on the Bush Fire Appeal list where SU will donate 50% of the sale to the bush fire appeal..right on SU!!!

img_53571img_53591Stamp sets used are Bodacious Bouquet, live your dream (summer mini -butterfly), en francais (back of swing card), Its all good (another retiring set),swirly roller and short and sweet. I used Bashful blue as my cardstock  (and whisper white for stamping) and the paper used is Old Olive DSP. The punches used are the scallop edge punch and one inch punch on the gift box and a large oval on the card. Ribbon is bashful blue crosgrain ribbon and soft sky double stitched ribbon and Ive used some silver hodgepodge hardware on the gift box too.

These are very easy to do and have that wow factor when you pull the edges apart. I was showing the different embossing techniques and use of crystal effects but its hard to see from these photos.

Happy stamping!!
