Jump On It July Be Jolly Gift Box

Today I am sharing a gift box that is inspired by one on page 7 of Annual Inspirations 2014-15. This is the gift box created by Corporate artists.

While my box is similar, I did not have any Yuletide Carol paper that was not already "spoken for" so I used Cranberry cardstock and a stamp from the Snowhaven Cardmaking WOTG to create the body of the box.

Here is the top of my box. The snowflake is stamped on Glacier cardstock in first generation Glacier ink. It is easier to see in real life.

When I stamped the body of the box I lined up the bottom of the trees about ¾" from the bottom of the box. Then I stamped the small snowflake from the Snowhaven Cardmaking WOTG in first and second generation using Slate ink. Unfortunately the tags hides most of that stamping in the photo. I stamped before folding the pieces. I only say that because I had a hard time forcing myself to wait to fold until after I stamped.

When stamping the greeting from the Be Jolly set I cut the stamp apart rather then using the sticky note masking technique I told you about during the Jump On It July Blog Hop. The words were so close together masking was difficult. In addition, by the time I stamped three times (once to create the mask and once for each of the other colors), the mask for the ampersand was so saturated that the ink went through the sticky note anyway.

If you create this gift box I hope you found something in this post that helps you achieve what you have envisioned in your mind's eye. I also hope that you like my interpretation of the Be Jolly Gift Box. If you have a moment, I would love to read your comments. Thank you for visiting today.
