Juicy Veggie Couture Card Box with Cards

Hi girls, I’m still working behind the scenes on those designs I mentioned last week. I won’t be able to post them until early February, but as soon as they’re finished, I’ll be starting more designs that I can post this month.

A quick reminder that Thursday at 9:00 p.m. I’m closing the blog candy.  Be sure to go there to leave one last resolution for an additional chance at winning.  I’ll be back Friday morning with the lucky winner.   In the interim, I thought I’d post this Couture gift box I made a few years ago.

The box is so adorable, a perfect gift for those who appreciate hand made items. It holds six 4″ x 4″ cards. It’s a pretty easy box to make with just a few folds. I don’t have the template, but did get it from Splitcoaststampers. The stamps are Lockhart stamps that I purchased a few years ago. I still love them as much today as I did the day I purchased them, they are so adorable!  Kaisercraft Pearls were placed on the box and on the Old Olive grosgrain ribbon. I made the tassel by unraveling the grosgrain ribbon and tying it with gold cord.

Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals large Nestibilities were used throughout, as well as the Classic Ovals Small and Classic Scalloped Ovals Small.

I embossed vellum with a Cuttlebug embossing folder (dots), and used a Martha Stewart punch to create the scalloped borders.  Kaisercraft pearls were used on the ribbon.

The images were stamped with Versamark and sprinkled with a mixture of Ranger gold/gold tinsel embossing powder, then water colored with Tombow markers.

I can’t remember which ribbon I used for the bows.  I do plan on making these cards again with designers papers. The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has beautiful 1/2″ wrinkle ribbon that is absolutely perfect for the project, as well as the bow easy for perfect bows.

The designs are quick and easy to make up, a perfect gift for a friend that enjoys sending out cards.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow to see if you’re the lucky winner for all that yummy blog candy!

Paper Hugs,

    These cards are so elegant and so classy looking and that box is to die for. I do love that set of stamps, so different.
    I’ve had a look at Splitcoasters resources and can’t see any box that fits your style, but will find something similar as I would love to make a set like this.

  3. This set is so Beautiful Jerri!
    A perfect gift for sure!

    Can’t wait to see what you are creating!

    Blessings and Hugs,

    Sure is pretty Jerri. Any one would love to have a beautiful Jucie Veggie Couture Card Box and cards too! I am going to try to locate the tutorial and add it to my “collection”, it’s just that pretty. Wouldn’t a box like that make a neat little shower gift with a nice set of cards or anything else in it, it is just so pretty and the color is great and it stands out perfect with the white.

  9. Diane says:

    Wow, this is gorgeous! I love the gold embossing with the watercolors. The embossed vellum is beautiful and do able by amateurs like me. So many great ideas here. Can’t wait to see what you are working on for us! ~Diane

    These are lovely, Jerri! I love the gold embossed images that really enhance the beautiful coloring! What a lovely gift!

  12. Susan says:

    What a great set of cards Jerri,

    It’s surprising how our tastebuds chance over a period of time, I never went much for green at one stage but I now find myself making lots of cards using green, especially sage green or similar, the shade you have chosen here looks super and goes really well with the images adding to the vintage look,

    take care and thanks for sharing

  18. Dottie Davis says:

    Getting out my stuff I haven’t used in a while ’cause you have stirred up my imagination AGAIN! These cards are so girlie and elegant. I never thought of running vellum through the Cuttlebug but I will now! These are so beautiful I am running to my art room!!!

  19. Selma says:

    Hey jerri, I went to splitcoast to look for the box to get the measurements. I couldn’t find anything that looks like this box. Can you tell me what it is called? Or what colors were used in the original? Or even who the artist was? I’m full of questions today!

  38. Charlette says:

  56. Susie says:

    Jerri, simply darling! Here’s what I like: the ranger gold (great effect); the vellum (a very classic and feminine look); the tassel really says “I went the extra mile” to make this a special gift. This boxed card set could be done in so many different ways for many different occasions — now that’s a winner in my opinion! Now, the only thing I’m wondering is how in the world you were able to unravel that ribbon is such a prefect way *lol*

  57. Deb Saaranen says:

    What a gorgeous set Jerri! These are so sweet…what a special group! I especially love the Dotted Swiss accents along with your gorgeous painting!

  58. Denise says:

    I love these couture stamps and how you colored them…..your coloring never ceases to amaze me. Fantasic box!

  59. An AMAZING boxed set of gorgeous goin’ on here, Jerri. WOW!! Absolutely exquisite.

  60. So beautiful, Jerri! Opening that box would be like lifting the lid on a treasure chest. I really can’t get over the box, especially. And the frayed ribbon tassel. Pure eye candy!

  61. MarkAngelo says:

    I just like to ask can did you used recycled materials? can be considered the best way to share presents, with your family or relatives. and can i ask what is the meaning of Juicy veggie?

  62. Sherian Dixon says:

    This box and set of matching cards is so beautiful, just like everything else you do. Who wouldn’t want to receive this lovely gift!

  63. Kathy H says:

    Oh My! Such lovely, lovely work!! Someone share a link to your site on another mb so thought I’d visit-sooo glad I did! The Lord has definitely blessed you with a wonderful talent. Glad to meet another Floridian:) I was raised in Sarasota, just a little south of you-although my dad was in the Air Force & we moved a lot, Sarasota was home.
