Pretty Cute - Boxed Gift Card Set by Sue W.

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Sue W. has created a lovely Boxed Gift Card set to share today. 
I hope you enjoy it.

·           Gift Cards:
•    From 12 x 12 Smooth Black card cut two strips at 2.5” wide and cross cut at 5” to make 4 x 2.5” side fold gift cards.
•    From Teresa Collins DSP die cut two circles using a Spellbinder die. Cross cut to make a total of 6 x ¼ cut circles. One for each gift card, one for the box and one to add to the 4” card.
•    Stamp 4 images from YUKI – Pretty Cute so smooth white card using VersaFine onyx black ink. This will ensure a good stamp of the small detail on these stamps.
•    Die cut the stamped images using a Spellbinder Classic Large oval die (2nd smallest). Add some red colouring to each image with a Copic Marker. Adhere one to the front of each gift card.
•    From scraps of red card die cut 6 sets of two layer Party Petals flowers. Shape and layer each adding a dew drop to the centre of each.  Adhere one to each gift card.
•    Add a small white die cut circle to the inside of each gift card for a written message.
        Gift Box:
•    From Smooth Black card cut a strip measuring 8.5” x 4.25”. Score along the 8.5” side at 2.75”, 3.5”, 6.25” and 7”.  Turn and score along the 4.25” side at .75” and 3.5”.  
•    Trim down to the top 2.25” on both sides to form the top flap. Trim in from the bottom flaps at the 2.75” and 3.25 score lines.  
          See Picture aaa  
•    Using a Spellbinders Label 4 die shape the top fold down flap.  I positioned the die over the card and placed it on the Cuttlebug at the very bottom edge of the cutting board to ensure it cut just the edge I wanted.
•    From red DSP cut a second shape using the Labels die and adhere this to the front of the fold down flap.  
•    Using strong tape to adhere fold and make up the box.  Add the ¼ cut circle to the front of the box and a two-layer flower to the middle of the fold down flap.  
•    To secure the flap cut a slit in the front of the box so the die cut point on the fold down flap slips inside.
   4 x 4 inch side fold card.
•    From Smooth White card cut score and fold to make the card base. Using a Black atyou Spica pen add some faux stitching around all 4 sides of the card base.
•    Trim some smooth Black card to 3.5” square and using a ScorePal score all four sides at .25”.
•    Add a red ¼ cut circle to bottom right of black card.
•    Stamp an image from YUKI Pretty Cute along with the sentiment to Smooth White card. Die cut and emboss both using and oval and Label 4 die respectively.  Add some red to the image with a Copic Marker.
•    Adhere the oval image to the scored black card followed by the sentiment, which is popped up, on foam tabs. Add the final double layer flower to the top left corner of the card.
•    To complete adhere the black card to the card base.
