Just Us Girls #112 - 3D Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Did you survive Black Friday?  I went out with my mom for a while in the afternoon, but didn't do any serious shopping.  I did go to my LSS and bought a couple of stamps though!

I'm here today with a new challenge from Just Us Girls.  This is our 3D/Template week, and our fabulous Andrea is challenging us to create a box and card.
My father-in-law celebrated his 80th birthday last week, and we gave him some gift certificates to some restaurants he likes.  I needed something to package them in, so this is what I came up with.

The box called That's A Wrap from My Time Made Easy.  I love this box!  It's so roomy and I love the way it opens (I didn't take a picture of it opened).  I used Creamy Caramel for the box and Cajun Craze for the base and wrap.  The dp is from the Timepiece Collection by Bo Bunny.  I love this paper for men.  I tied it off with Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon from SU.

The card uses the same papers (minus the Creamy Caramel).  The numbers were cut using By the Numbers die and Big Birthday Wishes stamp set from PTI.  I used an old corner punch on the two corners.

I used the Card Positioning Systems sketch from last week. 

Stop by the JUGs blog to see more inspiration from the girls.  Fabby stuff to see!  Here are links to their blogs.  Stop by and leave some love!
