3x3 Box and Cards


I made this box for the 3D060 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to make a 3x3 box using only SU products, but I did use non-SU flowers and brads. I'm such a rebel. You can find an easy pattern for this on Elaine's blog HERE!

I embossed the swirl from the Baroque Motifs set. The more I look at this the more I wonder if I should have embossed on vanilla instead of red, but I suppose it's good to walk on the wild and bold side every now and then! The colors I used are Certainly Celery, Black, and Riding Hood Red - one of the new In Colors that will be available in the new 08-09 SU catalog.  I've made a few of these boxes to have on hand as hostess gifts. Addicting little things, they are! (If you want to see more detail/larger view, just click on the pictures).

The box above is SU only, and I made it for my upline, Beth. I was going for clean and simple, and I love the Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip together. I'm really going to miss this blue when it's retired in a couple of weeks! The box holds matching 3x3 any-occasion cards. Hope she likes it!
