Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Masculine

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! 

This month's theme is all about Masculine or My Guy projects. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you would have arrived from Jean's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Katja's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I created for this month's Hop ...

I used the Stitched Nested Labels dies and the Sailing Home stamp set to create a Gift Box and coordinating card.

You can find a Video below showing you how I created the Gift Box.

The Gift Box is almost 5" long, 2⅝" wide and 2" tall. I used the largest of the Stitched Nested Labels dies to create it.

The background for the front panel was created using a couple of the stamps from the Label Me Bold stamp set. The images come from the Sailing Home set.

I created the image panel for the front of my card in exactly the same way that I created the top of the Gift Box, I just cut it out using larger dies.

The paper is from the Come Sail Away Designer Series paper pack.

Here is the Video for the Gift Box ...
