going green....

Shirleys2Girls has a Green Challenge up on the blog that I just had to try. They even provided a template to use to create a box with. The challenge was to use the template and create something green. I decided to go green by recycling a Girl Scout cookie box. Fill it with a bit of green moola and you have a box/gift in one.


I don't have any of their stamps yet, so I used two different October Afternoon circle stamps to create a pattern. I simply stamped the pattern repeatedly on the right side of the kraft cards in Versamark and then embossed with white EP. Add a butterfly cut from the Cricut, bit of green ink...simple gift.

While I was stamping I decided to make an extra card to have on hand using the same layout. simple, but I love the interest that the white EP adds.

Here's a close-up of the inside where you could see the Girl Scout box. This box is the perfect fit for dollar bills.


supplies used:
chipboard: Girl Scout Cookies
stamps: October Afternoon, Lizzie Anne
other: ribbon, button, cricut
template: Shirleys2girls
