SP & Company Group Post Time!!!!

Happy Wednesday!
We're half way through the week and I have a fun post to share!!!! I really wanted to start making simple gifts I can put aside and have ready to hand out, just in case I need something in a pinch.  I adore the idea of Thank You cards in a folder.  I adore the idea of Thank You cards in a box.  Enter the idea of putting the Thank You cards IN a folder IN a box!

I wanted to highlight the Lovely Labels set.  I've used this set several times since I've received it and I love it.  The frames are super easy to cut out they stamp so cleanly!!!



First up, the outside of the box:

I made a fun little wrap using a flower die and I stamped the SP & Co "Thank You" sentiment onto the wrap several times in VersaMark.  Then I ran a stitch down the center to give it a little something extra.  How did I keep that stitch line straight you ask? I scored it lightly ahead of time on my scoreboard so I had a nice line to follow! Pretty sneaky, huh???





Now, once you slide the box open, there is a folder inside!!!



I ended up making about a 1/4 inch spine on the folder, just so I could get the cards and envelopes to fit inside without getting too smashed up.  I just think these Lovely Labels work perfectly.  It's Clean and Simple, but ornate enough to make it work!

Inside shot of the folder:




I have the envelopes on one side and the cards I made on the other.




These are the cards I made.  I did two of each color.  I used that "Thank You" sentiment again on the little banner that I cut.  I wanted it on each piece so it all pulled together as one big item.  The rose is from Stampin Up.  I just stamped it in VersaMark, heat embossed it with white embossing powder and used a gray Copic marker to trace around the edges to give it some depth. 




I think the little stitch in the upper left, 'holding' the banner on is really fun.  It just gives it a little extra detail to make the eye look a little bit longer than normal.  Oh, and not to mention, I'm dying to sew on just about everything right now, so any excuse works, right???
