You Are More Cardmaking Kit

The Workshop Your Way Cardmaking Kit "You Are More" allows you to create 12 "just because"
cards. That is 6 of each design or you decide how many of each! These are cards that can be sent for any or no reason. They are "sweet" using the Gimme Some Sugar papers! Using the Bashful Shimmer Brush you can ice or frost any of the words that are stamped using the Archival Black Ink. I love the stamp set that has hearts and flowers that can be colored in with our Shin Han markers or Watercolor Pencils. The cuts are easy to do with one scallop cut using the Scallop Thin Cut.

I made a video putting together the 2 designs to show you that it is easy to create these cards.

Here are the cards:

An Easy Gift Card Box

I used the Gimme Some Sugar paper to make a gift box for my club on Saturday. They were perfect for a handful of jelly beans as a little spring gift.

You can make these either with a window (oval or rectangle) or without.

Use these thin metal dies to quickly and easily cut the shapes for a 3½" × 2¼" × ¾" folded box and optional windows or tags.
Use with the My Acrylix® In the Background stamp set (D1750) to create patterned numbers.
Thin Cuts are packaged on their own magnetic sheet and work well with most die-cutting machines.

Supplies I used to create the box:

Thin Cuts—Gift Card Box
Gift Card Box Thin Cut Z4150
Gimme Some Sugar paper packet x7228B
Whimsey Ribbon Pack Z3361
Non-Stick Micro-tip Scissors Z1836
Adhesive Runner Z3372

Here's my box:
