Stampin'Up Thankful Forest Friends Note Card gift set

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!
Today I am sharing a set of 4 Note Cards and a Gift Box for storing them. This gift set was made with the Stampin'Up Thankful Forest Friends stamp set and Gift Bag Punch Board.

This set of notecards is so easy to make! and my inspiration was my 10 year old daughter, she loves animals and this stamp set has 3 animal images that go very well with the Thanksgiving season, along with sentiments and folliages to use as accessories in many combinations.

For the Note Cards you will need the following:

-I first stamped the sentiment in a coordinating ink color at the very bottom right corner of the cards using all the sentiments to have a variety.
-Cut a piece of Into the Woods designer series paper 3-1/2 X 3-3/4 for each card, try to chose the patterns that have no more than one color and use a spritzer bottle filled with alcohol and coordinating ink and spritz it randomly just enough to give it more dimension. Do the same with the envelope flap piece of same designer series paper. This piece is cut at 2 x 5 inches, then trimmed to cover just the envelope flap.
-I used the 2 of the largest scallop top tags from the Tags and Labels framelits dies. Cut the largest tag using the solid color of coordinating card stock. Cut the smaller tag using whisper white card stock. Stamp animal images on white tags and attach to solid color tag.  I embellished them with Gold Basic Metal buttons and Gold cording trim, these tags are attached to card with dimensionals. 
-Cut a piece of Gold glimmer paper 3-1/2" X 3/8". Attach this piece at bottom of designer paper on card.
And you are Done with the cards!

For the Gift Box I used The Gift Bag Punch Board and made a box as follows:

Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White Card stock 10 X 6-1/2
On the 10" side place this piece to the right edge of the Gift Bag Punch Board and score where it says "SIDE", move that score line over to "MEDIUM" and score again where it says "SIDE". Flip over this card stock piece and do the same. Don't forget to score all along the horizontal line on top.
Then to make the flaps of the bottom of box, bring the first score line to where it says "START" and punch all the score lines. Then trim 1/4 " from the flaps and assemble and embellish it as you wish. 

For the top flap of the Box I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims thinlits (item 135854).  I cut the gift card envelope piece and trimmed the 2 small flaps and 1 of the large flaps leaving a piece as you see on picture above.  I trimmed this piece 1/8" more from each side to fit the top opening of my box. Place this piece on the Gift Bag Punch Board aligning the score line or fold at the "M" mark and then you score where it says "SIDE".  Fold these score lines to form the Flap of your box and attach to box. I also embossed this piece to give it texture. Attach a magnet at center inside of flap and also I attached another magnet inside the box base.
