"You Make Me Smile" Card and Gift Box With Mini Book Charm by Kim C.

This week I have done two projects.

The first is a simple card created with kraft colored cardstock and some vintage pattern paper from my stash.I then added a doily to the side of the card.  The edges were distressed with ink.  I made some flags from the vintage paper and added them to the right top corner.

I took the sentiment "You make me Smile" and embossed it with black embossing powder. A dew drop from The Robins Nest was added to the "i" to make it stand out.

I also added more of the dew drops to the bottom right corner.  I took the other half of the doily and added it to the inside of the card.  I then added some flowers from my stash to the bottom left corner.  I inked all the paper and cardstock with distress ink.

My next project is a gift box with mini book charm.  I made the box from kraft cardstock.  I wrapped vintage pattern paper and some lace around the middle of the box.  I inked the box and paper with distress ink.

I then added some flowers from my stash along with a vintage dressform.

I made a mini book charm that hangs from a lobster claw clasp, which I attached to a book mark style tag.  I added beads and a charm to the chain and also added some lace and a metal flower to the front of the book.

I just love how these two projects just go together.
