Stampin' Cat CTC176 Sweet Soiree

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s Sunday night already and that means CASEing the Catty Blog Hop time.  This is my second blog hop tonight, I’m so busy with classes and Blog Hops I’m not sure how I have time to go to work as well lol.

This week we are CASEing our favourite 2018 Occasions Catalogue Project.  You may have hopped over from Julia, thanks for continuing on with me.


My favourite thing from this Catalogue is the gorgeous box on the left hand side of page 11.

This was what I wanted to CASE 100% as is but I had already used those particular pieces of Sweet Soiree DSP on other projects and I had run out of the beautiful Berry Burst Metallic-Edged Ribbon, so I improvised.

I’ve used a different piece of Sweet Soiree DSP and some Springtime Foils DSP.  I’ve added some Powder Pink 1/2″ Finley Woven Ribbon and layered it with 1/8″ Silver Ribbon.

The finished dimensions of my box are 10.5cm long, 5.5cm wide and 10.5cm high.  I started with a piece of DSP 30.5cm x 25cm and scored it at 10cm on all four sides, I’ve cut along 4 of the score lines, mitred the edges then folded it up into a box.  It fits together better if you mitre the edges.

The lid of the box is a piece of DSP 18cm x 13cm, scored at 3.8cm on all four sides.  I’ve cut and mitred in the same places.

The tag on the box is die cut from the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies and embellished with flowers and leaves from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.  The sentiment is stamped in Powder Pink and I’ve also used some Silver Baker’s Twine.
