Birthday Gable Box

On Wednesday, Audrey Pettit posted an awesome gable box on her blog and also featured a tutorial on the Glue Arts site.    I had gone to a 6:30 AM boot camp class, then a 45 minute dog walk with my neighbor around the 'hood and when I returned....I needed to craft something up for my friend Tina for the birthday lunch we were meeting up for.

Since Audrey did such a great job with the tutorial, I knew I'd be able to whip this up pretty fast.

The back

I started with PTI kraft cardstock for my base. Then pulled out my Verze "Seize The Cupcake" set and randomly stamped cupcakes. I quickly colored them in with my Marvy markers and added some shimmer to the flame.

I made a rosette (Which I fail at miserably! Took me three tries!) and added another cupcake on top of.

I finished it off with a tag and an EK Success candle border punch.  I completed it in time and stopped at CVS before lunch and filled it with dark chocolate kisses! Yum!!

The color combo came from this week's Color Throwdown#160

You should go check out the tutorial - these would be great craft for Halloween treats!  Thanks Audrey! Great job!!

Thanks for your visit!

Oh, Maria! This is adorable! Love, love how your box came out. The stamped cupcakes are so fun and sweet, and I don't know what you're talking about because that rosette is perfect! Love your tag with the punched candles and I love your use of that color combo. SO glad you gave this box a try. :)

Very cute!!! What a great gift idea and can be made into any occasion box! Love it. The cupcakes are great with the little candles. TFS tucked that little tutorial aside :) Have an awesome weekend, we had cool weather yesterday but now back to 92-95, oh well it is better than 110.
