September Kit Card Gift Box!

First off I want to say that Loreen did an amazing job picking out this kit! It is so much fun to play with!!!! For my first project on the Design Clique I made this cute little card gift box! It's big enough to fit cards the size of 4 1/4 x 5 inside! (The tutorial for this box can be found on Diana's blog.) This paper was so amazing to work hardly had to emblish at all because of the beauty of the paper! If you look close at the blue background paper on my box, I used my silver glitter mist and stencils...the stencils are so much fun to play with....however a hint when using the glitter mist.....hold the bottle at least a foot away from your paper and coat the paper lightly (I held mine almost 2 feet away and slightly misted numerous coats on the paper. If you get to close and spray you will end up with big blotches of water on your paper and it looks really bad when it dries. Trust me on this because I did it the first time I tried playing today!) Here is the side view so you can see the dimension of the box!
And here's the other side with one of my cards inside that I also made with the September kit!
Here is the card! I used everything from the kit for this card except the ribbons that are tied in bows...those were from my stash. The ric rac and paper are all in the kit! Everything coordinates so makes creating so easy!!!!!
I am working on another surprise so come back tomorrow to see what else is made with this fun kit!!!! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
