Something Different Saturday

Happy Different Saturday!

Now whilst this is a box it is a set of note cards as well and the box and set is of a decent size!

The last few card box's I have made have been on the small size however this one is 14cm x 14cm and takes cards and envelopes up to 14cm.

The cards I have made to go inside are 13 x 13 with the envelopes at 13.5 x 13.5.

This shot shows the front and the flap in better detail.  Bothe the square of filigree at the front and the flap are made using the triangular die from Spellbinders Gold elements one set.

This creates a lovely window to see what is inside however for the tutorial I am planning a slightly different front.

I have included a close up picture as I personally really like the look of this!

The cards inside are simply made using a spotty paper form my local craft shop and an old Anna Griffin floral stamp.

The edge is another of Joanna Sheens signature dies which I cut after I adhered the paper to a square card blank (ready cut cards sold with the envelopes)

Finally the sentiment "Just a note" is stamped with a vintage notes stamp form Do'crafts.

As per I have planned a tutorial for Tuesday on this one should anyone fancy making a set!



  1. Yes, yes, yes!!! Lovely. Thank you John.

  2. Oooh, very pretty. Because I am ancient, I'm going to have to go look at a ruler to see what 14cm is in inches! Other than that, I have a corner die on the way to me, so I think I could probably make something similar once my die arrives. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Cant wait for this tut. Want to make for my fat club girls. Xxxx

  4. Hi John
    Yes, please! I would love to make a set of cards in this box. I have the corner die and will need to improvise for the edge with something different. They are SOOOOO pretty.
    Best wishes

  8. Hi John,
    This is fabulous, love it all ,you are so clever, such a lovely gift to give. Will have a try at this when you post the tutorial. I'm waiting for the gold corner dies to arrive which I got on ebay at a very reasonable price with free p&p.

  9. Hola John
    Well, I can only echo all the other ladies and say fantastic!
    Im already thinking about what other dies I can use to create a see through effect.
    I've taken the plunge and entered the HOC challenge.
    Hope you and Wendy manage to get some of that card on Monday!
    Have a great day.
