One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Happily Ever After. I used the Better Together stamp set, some doilies, and a few other goodies to create a wedding card and gift box. I can’t wait to see all the projects the other hoppers have created! Be sure to hop around to see them.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Elegant Eggplant card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored in half at 4-1/4″, then 1″ strip cut off the bottom of the front, then another 2-1/4″ strip cut from the front – there should be a 1″ strip still attached across the top of the front
  • Silver Foil Sheet cut to 2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Better Together stamp set:

  • sentiment in Elegant Eggplant ink onto the Whisper White CS
  • NOTE: I used an Elegant Eggplant Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up each part of the stamp, and used a Stampamajig to line up the words

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • scrap of Elegant Eggplant CS with a scalloped circle die

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • vellum embellishment from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit in Elegant Eggplant, Emerald Envy, and Daffodil Delight
  • NOTE: I colored the vellum on the back, not on the side with the silver

Assembled the card:

  • folded the card base along the score line, and burnished it with a Bone Folder
  • Silver Foil strip adhered to the front of the card base at the top, and to the 5-1/2″ x 1″ Elegant Eggplant CS strip at the bottom
  • Delicate White Doily adhered to the Silver Foil strip using Tear & Tape
  • Silver Metallic Foil Doily adhered to the white doily using Tear & Tape
  • colored vellum embellishment adhered to the silver doily using Tear & tape
  • stamped Whisper White CS glued to the inside of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the fold lines in the Mini Silver Gable Box, and assembled it – On the bottom, fold in the long flap with two tabs, then the two short side flaps, then the long flap with one tab.
  • two top end flaps tucked inside the box, instead of inserting the top tabs into them
  • silver Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie tucked inside the box with some hanging out the sides
  • Delicate White Doily adhered to the side of the box using Tear & Tape
  • silver Metallic Foil Doily adhered to the white doily using Tear & Tape
  • Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon wrapped around box and tied in a bow, tying the box closed at the top
  • die cut Elegant Eggplant CS scalloped circle adhered to the silver doily using Stampin’ Dimensionals, careful to leave a “tunnel” for the ribbon to slide through freely
  • smaller silver Metallic Foil Doily adhered to the die cut circle using Tear & Tape

Here’s the hop:
