Walnut Hollow & Quietfire Design - Shabby Chic Card Box

  Welcome to the Walnut Hollow & 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. 

It's Teresa here and today I am sharing a beautiful wooden card box from
Walnut Hollow that i filled with lots of pretty ATC cards that are
stamped with my favorite Quietfire Design stamps to give for a gift.
You can see the cardbox style here and it's perfect to use for lots of other fun
things too.  You could even decorate it just to put your favorite playing cards
in that you use for fun family and friend events or a neat jewelry box!


I am a shabby chic kind of girl so i decided to create a card box to fill with lots of ATC cards.
  First i sanded the box and then cut out pieces of chipboard with the Spellbinders dies you see
 on the top and on the front.  I glued them on and then painted thin layers of white paint over
the top and let it all dry really good.  (I also painted the inside of the box white to match).


Meanwhile i cut/embossed lots of flowers and greenery from Spellbinders
and created a pretty flower spray to decorate the top with.  The pretty
jewels are from Jolee's boutique but you can use anything to pretty it up
that you may have in your stash like lots of extra ribbons and pearls.


And then to fill my box-- i made 12 of these little cards to match.  I cut
out white paper and folded it and then used an ATC die to make the pink
and white layers on the top.  The beautiful stamps are from the
Always be my Friend set and the Twirl and Enjoy set.


This was such a fun project to do and i love how all the stamps
fit so perfectly on the little cards.  Below is a supply list just in
case you would like to make this project.

Supplies: Quietfire Design: Twirl & Enjoy/ Always be my friend

Spellbinders Dies: Luscious Labels One
and Medallion Seven, Flourish Trim, Blooms one, Blooms Four

This is such a lovely idea! Beautiful as a gift to a special friend filled with matching cards. Fill it with special hand made cards with sentiments for all occasions. When the cards are gone, it can be used for so many other things or replaced with a new set of cards or stationary.
