Shoebox Swaps - Card Set and Box

This Card Set and the matching Card Boxes are the project I shared for our Stampin' Retreat Shoebox Swap. I used a pattern I found online and then altered it for my preferences. The card layout is the same as the Washi Tape card I made last week - a simple but attractive layout that lends itself to showcasing beautiful pattern paper.

Again with the creative license - everyone made theirs in the theme they'd like. I first had them choose the sheet of pattern paper they wanted to used, then from there it was easy to choose the box cardstock and the cardstock for the cards and card mats and the coordinating ribbon.

Each set of 4 cards and the coordinating box uses just less than a single sheet of DSP. I cut the DSP into these pieces - 4 each at 2 1/2" x 4" and 1 piece at 2 3/8" x 4 1/8". The odd sized piece is for the front of the card box. The 4 other pieces are for the cards.

To assemble the cards, punch out a 1 3/8" Circle from each of the four pieces. Then use a sticky note to hold the punched circle and punch it with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. When assembling the cards, place the reverse side of the 1 1/4" Circle Punch of DSP inside the larger DSP. Two cards of each side.

We also cut 1/" x 5 1/2" strips of the same DSP to layer on the card liner inside. I added a banner sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes to my card fronts across the circle element, but some cards were made with such beautiful DSP that they were made without a sentiment banner.
