Another Make It Monday

It's fun to have the chance to make a couple more entries for Make It Monday this week.  I'm making the most of a long weekend.  This weekend, I had the chance to celebrate the birthdays of a couple of special friends.  This is the card/box set I made for one of them.  (In the box, by the way, are the most AMAZING brownies.   You can find the recipe for them here from the Pioneer Woman.   Go look, but I promise you'll be hungry.) 
My solution for the card here would work for cards with much more bulky embellishments than I have here.  It was even more of a solution, in this case, because I needed a place for the card.  So here's the solution:
I trimmed a glassine bag to fit the back of the gift box.  I attached the bag to the box with strips of Scor Tape.  (Do me a favor and pretend that I didn't forget to make sure the bag's seam was facing the back -- duh!)    It really like the way the coordinating card still shows through the bag. 

Stamps used:  Rosie Posie, Fabulous Frames, Quilled Elegance (LOVE that font!)
Colors used:  Berry Sorbet (PTI), Pure Poppy (PTI), Onyx Black (Versafine)
The box is one of my very favorite Sillhouette cut files.

Thanks for stopping by!
