Bitty Box Die

Hello-  Today's project I made with the Big Shot and the Bitty Box & Envelope Die.  I just love this die.  It makes the cutest little box as you can see above.  It is great for putting little gifts of jewelry, etc. in it.  I also cut out the envelope and made a mini card to match it.  I used the Stampin' UP! Stamp Set,  Fun & Fast Notes to stamp the "cake image & greeting" on a 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" square of Whisper White Card Stock  Then I took an aqua pen filled with water to color the cake, picking up ink off my ink pad for a water colored look.  I then matted the cake image on a 2" x 2" square of certainly celery card stock, added some dimensionals to pop it off the top of the box for a 3-D look.  Last but not least, the finishing touch was to take a 4" piece of ribbon, knot it, trim the ends, and attach it to the front of the box.
For the envelope set, I used the Stampin' UP! stamp set Birthday Bliss.  I stamped the image "birthday bliss", cut it out and popped that up with dimensionals and attached it to the outside of the envelope to decorate it.  The ice cream, presents, etc. image was stamped then punched out with SU's 1 1/4" square punch, then mounted on a square that was punched out with the SU Scalloped square extra large punch.  For the inside of the mini card, I stamped the "may your layers..." image, and punched that out with the SU 1 3/8" square punch and adhered it inside.  Presto...... the good witch has waved her magic wand for a quick, easy, and cute project!  I just love working with dies and punches.  They give such a professional look to your projects!
