Stampin' B's Challenge #23 Box & Cards







For the Stampin B's Challenge this week, Nicole (ButterflyEars) wanted us to make 3 X 3 cards with a box. Now this sounded like a breeze to me......BIG ERROR....LOL!!! The box seemed to throw me for a loop. It was not the making of the box....that was simple.....it was the decorating of the box to go with the cards.......but I finally overcame my shortcomings and completed a set. However, I must honestly say that I made mine 4 X 4 as I wanted to make them in a size I would use. (That is the practical side of me!!!)


The image I used is by Penny Black which I colored with Copics. I used designer paper, my fav corner punch, and some brads, as well as CB'ing the background. I kept the design fairly simple but I think it is still fun!!!


Now be sure to visit the Stampin' B's Blog so you can check out the fabulous creations of the rest of the team AND to check out how you can play right along with us.

Joanne, this little Hedgie set is just the cutest. I love the colors and the shape of the Nestie's is perfect for the box and cards.
