Thanks So Much!

Happy Monday, blog friends!  I am so excited that I got to play and create with some fun new stamps and products from the Stampin'Up! Spring Catalog!  Not only that, but I am also slowly getting acquainted with my new Mac and figuring out how to work things in MDS2!  So, for starters, how do you like the project above?  It's the gift box that holds the set of Thank You cards I created using the Oh, Hello Stamp set.  Love love love the tea lace paper doily! Here's a look at the inside of the box:

And, here's a closer look at the Thank You card:

I really love this stamp set.  I love the sentiments and that fun oval background stamp with chevrons in it.  And, how about that flower?  I love the vintage feel of it. So cool, don't you think?  Did you notice the subtle embossed trim on the edge of my card?  That sweet embossing edge is from the Spring Catalog, too!  It's called Needlepoint Border.

Now, what I also wanted to share with you is how I created the box!  I don't know about you, but during the holidays, I had to assemble quite a few gift boxes and I noted that I really liked how the Nordstrom gift box folded.  So, here is my rendition, with the instructions for a 4" x 5 1/2" finished box {with a 1" depth}.  Hope you like it:

Here's the Thank You card recipe for you:
