Mother's Day Card Box


I made my mom a bunch of cards for Mother's Day (you can see the one peeking out of the box in yesterday's post), and this is the box I made to hold them.  The matchbox cut is from the Cricut Tags Bags Boxes and More cartridge.  I cut the base at 5.5", out of kraft cardstock.  The sleeve is cut at 5.6" out of Pink Paislee patterned paper.


To decorate the top, I began by cutting a 4" branch designed by Kerri Bradford, using my Silhouette.  The green paper is from the Martha Stewart Woodland Mat Pad, from last year's Christmas collection.  I made the flowers with the My Creative Time Rolled Flower Dies, using paper from the Teresa Collins' Spring Fling collection.


This sweet sentiment is from MCT's Mom You Rock stamp set.  I used the MCT Fancy Frame Stamp & Die Set to make the frame.
