Hi, The card you see here is one of many that's included with the box you'll see at the end of this post. I've been trying to use all the designer paper that I've stashed away and I thought this paper was perfect for what I was looking for! 

I used the Great Friend stamp set that's in the Occasions Mini Catalog and punched it with the 1 3/8 Circle Punch.  Instead of piercing holes with the Paper Piercer & the Chic Stand, I used the Black Marker and made little dots (to tie in the black a little more).

The matching envelope was made with the same designer paper and if you'd like to see how to make an envelope to go with your 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 card, click here.

Now for the box….I'll show you the picture and then explain 🙂

After I filmed the video for the Designer Paper box I decided to make one smaller, using only one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.  This is the end result….cute isn't it?  Ever since Melissa gave me that birthday card with the Top Note quilt I've wanted to make a card, but look how cute it looks on my box.   Click here if you'd like to see the written instructions on how to make the Top Note quilt

The box is made just like the Designer Paper Box, except it's smaller.  Would you like another video or just the measurements?

I will try to post again this weekend but no promises. Just in case I don't……….Have a Happy Mothers Day!!!  and thanks for stopping by 🙂

p.s. the retired designer paper I used was Cutie Pie.
