Papertrey ink Blog Hop - Transparency


Woo Hoo! Another BLOG HOP - I can't believe it came so soon. Ok, I don't have anything "out of the box", but rather, I just have a box (haha). Boy, I know that I'm not that funny, but a girl's gotta try...

Anyway, I LOVE to make nugget boxes (Scor-pal) as little gifts and of course that means I have to use PTI's Limitless Labels set, so this time because the challenge was to use transparencies, I decided to make my nugget box all clear. I LOVE (wow, I guess its just a love fest tonight - please forgive) being able to see the pretty nugget labels without having to slide the case off. I added a bit of "bedding" of shredded cardstock and the whole project looks great because of the gorgeous Plum Pudding. I (heart) Plum Pudding with the Lavender Moon. Its purple, but not PURPLE - I know that you know what I mean.

So, I had to make a matching card and am quite pleased with the way it turned out. Again, nothing innovative here, just a pretty card. Here is the card closed:

And here is the card open so you can see the inside sentiment and the nugget box with it.
Finally, a close up of the nugget box.

Thanks for hopping by and I can't wait to see rest!



Everything is PTI unless noted.
Cardstock: Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, Vintage Cream, Transparency, Ink: Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, Stamps: Borders and Corners, Limitless Labels, Birthday Basics, Beautiful Blooms, Other: PTI Ribbon, SU! Tag Punches, Hole Punch, Scor-Pal, Paper Piercer,

I love how the lavender and plum mats look like they're on the front, until you see the card open and realize they're on the inside. It's all very lovely!
