Truly Grateful

In this season of Thanksgiving, I am truly grateful for many things. For family and friends, for those who read and follow my blog, for health, a warm home and most of all to God for his grace and mercies which are new every morning.

Today's sample is a box I created using the Envelope Punch Board. Basically I made an envelope giving it extra score lines to make a box. I will try and get a tutorial up soon. The belly band was fun to make. A strip of Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, Doily that was sponged with crumb cake ink, crushed curry scrap of cardstock cut to make a banner, Truly Grateful stamped and cut out using the Apothecary Accents Framelits and lightly stamped with a background, just a strip of scrap Sweater Weather paper to accent and cut out of the Maple Leaf Stamp. Of course a little bling doesn't hurt either so I added the rhinestones. Inside the box are four notecards.

I used two different stamp sets to make these - Truly Grateful and Harvest of Thanks. 

I added a piece of Washi Tape to the card and stamped the Grateful using Black Stazon Ink

 Having products that coordinate makes crafting so much easier. The Apothecary Accents Framelits coordinate with the Harvest of Thanks Stamp set - I stamped the thanks and used the matching Framelit to cut it out on my Big Shot. 

To Make the boarder around the cut out image, I cut a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock to fit the back of the rectangle, then punched two circles using the 1" circle punch and adhered them. It looks like a complete boarder of Chocolate Chip cardstock then!
