Annika and a Card Couture

Have you guys seen the new release of templates by Lauren Meader over at Papertrey Ink?  This is called "Card Couture" and  it can hold a lot of A2 sized cards.
Anyway, a friend of mine who used to stamp with me many, many years ago quit stamping cause she never had any time.  Since then I have been making all of her cards for her.  After she seen all the images from The Greeting Farm she fell in love with them and has been wanting to start stamping again.  So to get her back into the groove of things I thought I would make her this gift.  Her favorite image is "Annika" so of course I had to put her on the front of the box!
Here is a picture of another angle so you can see the details of the handle.
Opened view.  Flap stays put with a velcro dot.
  Used the Martha Stweart Scallop border punch for the detail on the back.
Instead of filling this card couture with finished cards.  I filled it with some Greeting Farm images to help get her started.  I hope she likes her gift!  TFL!  Have an awesome weekend!

What a pretty, wonderful, useful gift you have made for your friend. How can she not get started with all the images you've stamped and tucked into this pretty box for her? Great job, Chalsie and that box can be filled with so many different things so its a great gift box! Hugs, Cami

This is so strange...I could swear I posted a comment last night but it's not here. Anyways, Chalsie, this is a wonderful box you made for your friend and with all the images you stamped for her and put in this beautiful box, there's no reason for her not to get inspired to start creating again. I love how you put together this box. You've done Lauren Mead proud with your creation. Hugs, Cami
