Thank You Cards and Box

A little while ago FSJ posted the coolest little Thank You cards and I decided to make some along with a little box to hold them.  I gave this to my secret sister at church for part of her Christmas gift.

I used the Damask Print ATS stamp and the Thank You from the Greet & Shout set.  I matched the inks to the papers and used brads and such from my stash.  I made the envelops using my Envelope Punch Board and printer paper.  I stamped part of the Damask Print on the back flap.

I made the box using my Scor-Pal and working the measurements of my cards and envelopes.  I did LOTS of layering which really made the box quite sturdy.

I used pattern paper from the Journey Basis Brights pack, the Create-a-Bow Mini die (out of stock until Jan. 1, 2016),  the Artful Butterfly die set, and the die set from the Journey Blooms Bundle.

I added a pearl to the bow center.

I got a little crazy on the butterfly by splattering some Citrus Cooler and Silver Silks and adhering some Glass Glitter to the butterfly body.  The glass glitter actually comes in a small jar with a cork top, not what is shown.  I think the glitter was a bit overboard.

I like the Thank you cards. Simple and elegant. The box is pretty fancy, looks like a lot of time put in on that.
