Boxed Set

Over at the UStamp with Dawn and Friends Year End Blowout 2010, one of the projects is a vintage boxed set of cards using the totally gorgeous Springtime Vintage papers and stamps in the US Occasions Mini.

Of course, we don't have those papers or stamps (but please, please, please SU, give them to us in April!) so I had to adapt. I wanted to use the Love Letters papers (I adore black and cream) and I wanted a little French chic! So I chose pink pirouette card to go with it and have used Aviary, Well Scripted and Curly Cute stamp sets for my cards.

Here's the complete set (click on any photo for a larger view):

The box:

The cards individually:

Now, unfortunately, with the differences in US sizing and ours, I discovered too late that our envelopes don't fit in the box! Darn it! Note to self: enlarge box sizes in the future. Ah well, such is life! Hope you like the set anyway.

Love this one Kez! Saw it on UStamp ... and fell in love! Thanks for the tip about enlarging the sizing! Do you think that would be tricky? How much bigger do we need? Hugs xxaxx
