boxed-in adventure

Over at the Watercooler, I think Deb called it "boxed-up".  Boxed-in / boxed-up - those are not quite the same, are they?  Either way, I loved Marsha's box for a set of greeting cards, but I used Roni's instructions so I can be sure to fit in A2 cards with envelopes when I get the set completed.
stamp set - Party Wishes; ink - Basic Black; card stock - Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry; designer series paper - It's My Party
Wait, what happened here - no punches, no Big Shot?  No embellishments of any kind - that's not like me!  I love the positive/negative aspect of this paper, and didn't want to take away from it, but don't worry, the cards inside will be a bit fancier!  I'm thinking a set of eight, two each on Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand and Mint Macaron bases, so they can go to men or women.

Hi Kathe, I agree about the positive/negative aspect of this Designer Series Paper. It works so well together that you would spoil it by adding things. The colours are so wonderfully bright and happy, too. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I can't wait to make one of these boxes! I'll follow your lead for the tutorial, Kathe, as I want mine to fit standard A2 cards as well. This birthday paper is so bright & cheery; I like how you used both backgrounds of the same candles print. Thanks for joining the 'boxed up' Watercooler Wednesday challenge! ~Deborah

I LOVE you box Kath - Love the simplicity of it - just my style! I'm going to miss this paper. I'll have to check out those directions too! Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday this week!
