So Berry Sweet

Good morning!  I have a massive project to share with you today.  When I sat down to stamp yesterday, I decided to create a little gift box to have on hand for one of those moments when I need a last minute gift/raffle item/thank you.
I pulled up Jen's Deconstructed Sketch from Thursday, which lent itself to a simpler card (which is great for mass-producing!) and went for it.  Then I spent the next, oh, two or three hours creating this box set. So much for quick and simple! I think it was the sewing... Or the coloring... Or the twine... Something in there took a long time!  Oh, well. At least they look good. ;)

I used one of my newer Taylored Expression  stamp sets. Love the little faces on the fruit and the "punny" sentiments!  Too cute!  The dp was another goal of mine: Create a whole stack of cards using the same 6x6 pad.  Check!  I used all My Mind's Eye Lime Twist: Life of the Party to create every single card. Including the packaging. Phew!  I am not quite sure why that was a goal, but there it is.

Now to figure out whom these will be going to...  Someday...

Thanks for stopping by!
