Antique Store Set #5

Hello! You are reading my 100th post! I can't believe it. When I started this blog in March, I never thought it would only take me 4 months to reach 10,000 hits and post 100 times. Thanks to all of you for supporting my blog and visiting regularly! This is my final card set for the Market Place on Main (all that's left is candles). I wanted to make a variety of styles to give him to see what works best, so this set is much more "fun" than the other sets. I CASED this card from SCS. It was very simple to make these and they were done in about an hour. And I just can't get enough of the color combination. I'm really sad that I used my last sheet of this style DSP. Time to order more!!!

When I started to think about how I wanted to package them, I didn't want to make another one of the boxes I have been making. I wanted something for the cards to "stand" in. I searched all over SCS and couldn't find any template for what I was visioning...so, I decided I was going to make my own box template! Boy, I didn't realize what I was in for. Although it only took me about 15 minutes to figure it out, my brain hurt after it was all said and done! I cut my cardstock to 8 1/2 x 6 and scored it at 2 inches all the way around. Cut the flaps and assemble. It seems way to easy for the time it took me to think of it! The DSP is 1 3/4 square for the sides and 1 3/4 x 4 for the front and back. See the template below for cutting/scoring.

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Big Shot, Scallops 2 Die, 1 3/8, 1 1/2, and Scallop Circle Punches, Crystal Effects, Coluzzle, Horizontal Slot Punch, Melon Mambo Ribbon, Dimentionals, SU Markers, Blender Pen

And, all of the cards with the box. I was the mad photographer with this set, can't you tell? :)
