Think Love Challenge at TMITA/PCC

Here are two views of the box.

This is my cute gift card created with another one of Nina May's digi images.

I hope you all had a great weekend.  It seems like this month is going by so fast!    It is time for another TMITA/PCC Challenge.  I have been so excited to post my project this week for the challenge.  I made a box plus a gift card to match.  The cute digital image on my box,  from Nina May,  is called "Think Love".  Kim McDonald is the host designer this week and our challenge is to use the "Think Love" image on a treat box/bag/holder of some kind.  I decided to create a box.

My box is created using Kraft card stock and was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The Think Love digi was printed off and colored with Copic markers.  I cut the shape out to fit the font of the box then used a  black marker to add the scribble design on the edges.  Some Martha Stewart leaves were punched and glued in the corner to resemble a tree.  Hope it looks that way to you.  Red lace hearts were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and added to the sides of the box. 

The verse is from a stamp set by Nina Brackett called "Heartily Yours Additions".  This is one of the new stamp sets just released from Gina K Designs.  I created a tag with the verse and attached it to the top of the box with a red brad, which holds the top closed.  A red bow and red heart rhinestones were added to complete the box.

In Nina May's "Paper Cupcakes" store she has another image called "Friends in All Sizes" that I felt was perfect to create a little gift card to go with this gift box. This card is 3.5 inches square.   This is going to be the perfect gift box and card for a  little gift for someone special. 

I'm sure  you will want to join us this week in completing a project using this cute "Think Love" image.  It is free on the There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes Blog.  When you link your project to Mr. Linky on the TMITA/PCC blog, your name will be in the random drawing to win a free image by Nina May.  Click on the image below to see all the cute designs you will be able to choose from.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  It means a lot to me.

Oh my gosh. The box and matching card is so darn cute. I love the giraffe, and yes the punch out leaves looks just like a drooping branch of a tree.

Great job.
