Share it on a Sunday - Monochrome Card and Treat Box

 Hi Everyone,

Today's theme is 'Monochrome' and I've made a cherry cobbler and white Christmas card and matching treat box using the Detailed Baubles and Pretty Pillow Box dies and the Perfectly Plaid and Poinsettia Petals stamp sets.


1 piece of cherry cobbler card 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" (card) use the other half of the sheet of card for the pillow box
2 pieces of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Scraps of cherry cobbler and basic white for the sentiments and die cuts
Embossing folder (I've used a retired snowflake one)
Delicate Bauble dies
Pretty Pillow Box dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Perfectly Plaid stamp set
Poinsettia Petals stamp set
Cherry cobbler ink
Basic rhinestones
Double Oval Punch
Multipurpose adhesive
Bone folder


On the long side score the card stock at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut the pillow box and the flowers from the other half of the sheet of A4 cherry cobbler card. Also, die cut the delicate bauble and the bow from a scrap of cherry cobbler and the label and the white flowers from the scrap of basic white card.

Run one piece of the basic white card through the machine in your chosen embossing folder.

Fold the score lines on the pillow box gently and then bring up the half without the fold over lid and fold the curved sides front over back and glue in place. As it is a curved surface, you will need to hold it together for a minute until the glue takes, repeat with the other side.

Stamp a sentiment on the label for the pillow box and add to the box using dimensionals top and bottom, you could use a velcro dot so that it can be opened and closed, but I haven't, I don't expect it to be reused.  Don't forget to add your treat before you close it!!  (Mine contains a chocolate treat.) Adhere the flowers putting a white one on top of a red one and off set it, then add to the label as shown in the picture, add rhinestones as flower centres.

Adhere the embossed layer to the card front and then adhere the die cut bauble with the bow to make it look like it's hanging from the top of the card as shown, trim off the excess string piece.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of white and then punch out with the oval punch and layer up on the scalloped cherry cobbler and add to the card front on dimensionals.

Add the remaining white layer to the inside to write your message.

I hope that you like my matching monochrome card and treat box, ideal for a little gift for someone.
