Under the ocean – gift set

Hanglar Stanglar stamps
Stempelglede sentiment
Papers: Design, thick acetate and cardstock by Stampin up 
Tools: Spellbinder Nestabilities oval (scalloped and oval small/large), Magnolia heart swirl
other: pearl stickers, seashells and flowers from stash
peek of the finished inside
card is worked using a sketch created by my friend Jacque for Just Magnolia / Just Hanglar 
one of my favorite snacks these days is white seedless grapes with multi seed crackers and cheese :-) oh well, i confess.. i add here and there a glass of white wine. i had this empty “President” brie box on my counter and thought it would make a great addition to the card to give some presents away. The box is large and sturdy enough to hold dies, flowers, ribbons ect. I have lined the inside of the box with patterned paper as well.

If you like this idea and you consider making one too and need an other layout idea… there should be an other altered box just like this on my blog as well. I used Tilda with arrow on it and made the box look vintage, with lots of laces ect.
The tag used on the box is created with Magnolias new tag die.
some laces and seam binding ribbons are by “The Ribbon Girl
hugs to you and thanks for seeing me today
