Hello and welcome to my blog. 

Today I am taking part in the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop which is all about gift packaging.  If you are following today's hop, you would have reached me from Annette Ball in Canada.  

For my project today, I have created a matching gift box and card which is a great way of personalising your gifts for any occasion. 

The monochrome look is one of my most favourite colour combinations.  For this project, I have used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped onto Very Vanilla Cardstock, and added in some Crumb Cake for an extra neutral tone.  

For the box, I have stamped onto the lid only with one of the leaf images from the Framed For You Stamp Set before folding and sticking together.  I have used both linens from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack to attach the sentiment banner that I have cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock.  

To bring the sentiment and the box together, I have added some fussy-cut leaves that match the lid.  

The card has been created to match the stamping on the lid of the box, and I have used the same sentiment details to bring it all together as a coordinating project. 

This box was super easy to put together and is a great size; the lid completely detaches and would look great in any colours and for any occasion.  I have added measurements further down this post for you to recreate from your craft desk.
