By the Tide Card and Gift Box for JAI #212

Hi.  Welcome to addINKtive designs.

I'm enjoying spending some extra time in my craft room and a couple of days ago I finally got around to making a Scalloped Tag Topper Punch card with a matching mini gift box.  I love how they turned out and wanted to make another 'set' using By the Tide.

The latest challenge at Just Add Ink provided me with a gorgeous colour combo and a very good reason to leave the housework for another day.

  Card and Gift Box

Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  By the Tide, Gorgeous Grunge, Happy Watercolour, Six-Sided Sampler, Label Love
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Baked Brown Sugar, Crumb Cake
Card Stock:  Natural Composition Specialty DSP, Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Artisan Label Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Bitty Banners Die, Tea Lace Doily, BBB Ruffle Stretch Trim, Natural Linen Thread, Crumb Cake Taffeta Ribbon, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Vintage Trinkets, Dimensionals

You can find the instructions on how to do the Tag Topper Punch Closure for the card HERE.

The little box is just the right size for a tea light candle or soy wax melt. You can find the instructions on how to make it, HERE.

If you have some time to dabble with some ink and stamps this weekend, why don't you hop on over to Just Add Ink to check out the gorgeous projects by the Design Team and join in the fun.

Thanks to all those lovely ladies at Just Add Ink, who selected this as a Top Pick for the Week.

Fabulous use of the challenge colours, Bron. I love the little details around the label (the doily, the stretch ruffle trim), as well as the embossing that looks like bubbles. Beautiful work, as always! Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink. Can't wait to see you at Convention! xx
