CTMH A Tree Notecard Gift Set

Cardstock Gift Box Cut With Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
This gift box holds 6 cards and envelopes.  The card pictured below is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", which gives an idea as to the size of the closed box.
Standard Sized Card in Front of Gift Box
This card was stamped with A Tree in black ink on a white base. The Sky cardstock tree was popped up and offset a bit to create a shadow effect.  It was stamped with Versamark and embossed with a sparkly powder that has been in my stash for over 10 years.
CTMH Flower Brads Adorned with Bitty Sparkles
The petal box is cut using the first image and the Shift/Font Layer at the largest size possible on the 12 x 12 mat. This is the shape on page 21 in the guide book for the AP Cartridge.  It is such an easy box to assemble and looks so elegant.
Petal Box Cut at 11" - Assembled
To keep the sides from falling down/apart, I used red-liner tape on the four small inside tabs.  That stuff is very powerful!  The envelopes were all cut out of a lighter weight (retired) B & T patterned paper at 4 1/2". The envelope is on page 29.  It also is a Shift/Font Layer cut.
Six 4 1/2" Square Envelopes and Six 4 1/4" Square Cards Fit Securely Inside
Each of the notecards was stamped using the A Tree set.  Some of the cards were embossed.
