I had a workshop last night and this is the card and matching gift box everyone made.  I like to make coordinating projects and share how easy they are to make.

For my card: The card base is Baked Brown Sugar, with a layer of Coastal Cabana that was embossed with the new Pretty Print Embossing Folder.   I also added a small layer of Very Vanilla Card Stock that was cut using my Big Shot and an Adorning Accents Edgelits. 

I then stamped my Flowers from the Flower Shop Stamp Set using Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana Ink.  I punched them out with the Pansy Punch and placed them onto the card using dimensionals and added Candy Dots for a bit of embellishment.  I then added my sentiment which is from the Label Love Stamp Set and punched this out with the Artisan Label Punch.

For the bottom of the box:  I took a piece of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock that measured 6" x 6".  I scored it on all sides at 1 1/2".  I cut slits in the ends of the four corners and folded them in to adhere to the sides using Sticky Strip.

For the top of the box:  I took a piece of Coastal Cabana Card Stock that measured 6 1/8" x 6 1/8" and scored it on all sides at 1 1/2".  Before I put it together, I folded it on the score lines so it would fit in my Big Shot and ran that piece through using the Pretty Print Embossing Folder.  Then I cut slits in the ends of the four corners and folded them in and adhered them to the sides once again using Sticky Strip.  I took my 1" Circle Punch and punched an opening in both sides to make it easier to open the box.  I added my Baked Brown Sugar Ribbon and some stamped and punched flowers to dress the top of the box, coordinating it with my card.
