Sip & Relax - 4x4 Card Set....and an Announcement!

Happy Wednesday night to ya! I will try to make this quick, because I am exhausted - it was a long day!

A quick announcement:
I bit the bullet and finally opened an Etsy Store! I have been thinking about it for a while and finally decided to take the plunge! I added my store link over on the right side. I have not had a lot of time to fill up the store, but I am working on it!

I made this card set as a cute gift! I swear, I love this Tea for Two set from PTI. I am sure you are sick of seeing it already! I feel like I have already gotten my money's worth on this set, because it has seen to much ink already. LOL!
I used the Pizza Box Tutorial from SCS to make the cute matching box. It holds 3 cards and envelopes! The buttons made the cards kinda bumpy, so 3 fit best. If they were more flat, 5 would easily fit. I actually made 5 cards, so I am thinking I will make 1 more card and another box to have 2 sets! Then I will add one of the sets to my store!

I pulled out (ok, it was still sitting on my desk! - I am so bad about putting away my DP after I am done with it. I just usually pile more on top, until I finally can't stand it and put it all back!) more of that Bo Bunny Delilah DP - it is just so pretty. I paired it with Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream (both PTI), Pretty in Pink (SU) papers and some Creative Impressions Swirl ribbon.
Here is a close-up of the card - it's size is 3.75 x 3.75. I stamped the image and sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink and layered using my oval nesties and SU punches (love the new Modern Label Punch - where have you been all my life?)
Here's a shot of the inside of the box with the cards inside. They fit so nicely!
Lastly, here's a close-up of the outside of the box.

Supplies: Stamps - Tea for Two (PTI); Paper - Pretty in Pink (SU), Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream (PTI), Bo Bunny Delilah DP; Ink - Dark Chocolate; Accessories - Oval Nesties, Creative Impressions Swirl Organza Ribbon, Buttons (PTI), Word Window & Modern Label Punches (SU), foam tape.

Have a great night! ~Tori

Awesome ensemble Tori! The pizza box is so well executed and I too adore a cup of tea. Great color scheme too.
