Casing the Pro

I spent all of yesterday, Saturday, recreating a project which I saw on Shelli Gardner's Blog (So Shelli) from back in December. It was a gift that they were giving to the TODAY show people - a tin filled either with cards, for the women, or Utah carmels, for the men. I loved the look of the box and the different cards inside - because of their simplicity - which is something that I sometimes have a hard time with. I wanted to create the gift - but not having all of the stamp sets that Shelli does - I ended up with variations that I am happy with. Instead of using a papier-mache box, I opted for a CD tin - which I still have a number of. I do believe I would like to make this into a class for my stampers.
Here's what I ended up with. You can see Shelli's original by linking through the sentence above.

Tin Front

The original of the card above used totally different stamp sets - I don't have any nice bird silouettes - but I do have the wonderful punch!!!

Again, the original card had a silouette of a swallow cut out and attached.....I used my Beautiful Wings Embosslit die.

What a fantastic idea this is for using up those little scraps you end up with from cutting for previous projects!!!! I've done this on purpose for a scrapbook page, but never on a card - Love it!

I had tons of fun recreating these. Now I think I'm better prepared for my Sunday project! Thanks for stopping by for a visit - Joan
