Note card box set

I saw this awesome note card gift box set and loved it over on Susan Itell's blog.  I made this one for my Dad's friend for Christmas.  I hope she likes it.  I fit 6 note cards plus envelopes in this box.
For the box I used Old Olive card stock, Park Lane dsp, Blackberry Bliss ink and ribbon.  The box bottom measures 7 1/4" X 5 3/4", score at 1" on all 4 sides.  The top measures 7 3/8" X 5 7/8", score at 1" on all 4 sides.  Snip your flaps to make your boxes.  I used fast fuse to glue it together.  Before you put your box top together, use your framelits to cut a window.  I used the Deco Labels.  The opening for my window used the 3rd framelit from the outside.  The little border was cut using the 2nd and 3rd framelits together with one cut.  I put a small piece of window sheet on the back of the lid and then covered it with another "frame"

The note cards are really simple.  The base is a note card that measures 5 X 3 1/2.  I added a layer of whisper white that measures 4 3/4 X 3 1/4.  Before adhering it to the base, I stamped the initial with the Larger Than Life stamp set.  I then used my Stampin' Trimmer and scored all four edges at 1/4" and then again at 1/2".  I put it on the note card base with dimensionals.  I used a little of the Park Lane dsp (5 1/4" X 2") to add a little flair to the envelope flap.  I glued it to the envelope with tombo liquid glue.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
