3x3 "Deck of Cards"


Have you ever come across something on a blog and you think...I've got to go try that right now?  That's what happened when I saw this adorable box and cards by Dawn Olchefske. (I just noticed that I decorated the opposite side of the box...mine opens in the back.)  I love the stamp set, too, and since one of my goals is to improve my watercoloring skills, I ordered the "Flower for All Seasons" stamp set as one of my Sale-A-Bration items.  Can't wait to get it and start playing!

Back to this "Deck of Cards."  I wanted to include envelopes in my box, so I changed Dawn's original  measurements to fit 3x3 cards and SU!'s mini square envelopes.  Here are the measurements for my smaller box:
  • Start with a 6"x9" piece of card stock.
  • With the 9" side across the top of your scoring tool, score at 1", 4-1/4", 5-1/4" and
    8-1/2".
  • Turn the card stock to the 6" side and score at 1", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4".

Here are the supplies and measurements for the box decoration (based on a card I saw in our Stampin' Success demo magazine) and the cards:
