Walnut Hollow & Quietfire Design Blog Hop - Give Thanks


Hello!  My name is Kathy Jo and welcome to day 2 of the Walnut Hollow and Quietfire 2014 Blog Hop!   We’re pleased you’re joining us and know you’ll find lots of creative inspiration for combining Quietfire stamps on the beautiful Walnut Hollow wood products.

For my project, I used Walnut Hollow's card box, item 1704OP
Card Box
and Quietfire's newly released stamp set Give Thanks
Give Thanks, Set of 2 Stamps - Mounted
The box is planned to be a Christmas gift and will contain Thank You cards for the recipient.  
First, the box was painted antique white.  Graphic 45's Birdsong paper was cut to size and applied to the box lid.  The base of the box was covered with faux black leather card stock.  Ivory lace was applied along the edge of the lid and a key hole embellishment was applied to the front.
Birdsong paper was die cut using Spellbinders' Elegant Ovals.  The gorgeous Give Thanks was heat embossed in gold on vellum and then die cut using Spellbinders' Floral Ovals.  Green Graphic 45 paper was die cut using Spellbinders' Foliage Flourish and was glued around the edge of the vellum.  Coordinating flowers, an antique key embellishment, mini gold ribbon and butterflies were also adhered as shown.  Stickles was applied to the butterflies as the final touch.
Here is another look at the finished box:
I just love this box!  The sentiment is so beautiful and the lovely box with the curved lid edge just begs the recipient to open it!

  3. Beautiful! I did a double-take before reading the instructions because the background of the stamp looked mirrored! The stamp on the vellum is the perfect touch!

  36. Your box would be a great gift for anyone, as items other than cards can be put in it and your design does not "label" it as a card box.
