Stampin up rockabilly designer paper matchbox die

Looking for the perfect relationship between paper and 3-D?  The new Matchbox Bigz XL Die (Occasions Mini) could be your true love.

At 2 11/16" x 2 1/16 x 1/2", it's sized just right for small gifts, party or wedding favors.  It can slide out to reveal an exact fit of four Hershey's Nuggets.  Click here to view my example of a clear top and nuggets.

Stampin' Up!'s Rockabilly Specialty Designer Series Paper offers the royal treatment on all three items in my trio.  On the box, the shiny crown pattern serves as the topper and Whisper White as the base.  It's wrapped up with Dress Up Ribbons Originals Riding Hood Red and a Circle Rhinestone Brad for bling.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Matchbox Messages (Occasions Mini, coordinates with the Matchbox Die–very cool).  TIP:  I inked it up in Jet Black Stazon, wiped off the heart with a Q-Tip, retouched the heart with a Ruby Red Marker and stamped for a two color image.  It's cropped with a 1 3/8" Circle, attached to Stampin' Dimensionals and lands on a polka dot Scallop Circle (another Rockabilly pattern).

The last detail is a Riding Hood Red Trio Flower Punch, dialed up a notch with a Circle Rhinestone Brad.  TIP: The Stampin' Up! rhinestone brad collections (in Ice or Fire) come in four colors and 3 sizes.  I used the largest size to embellish the ribbon and the smallest for the flower.

The 3.5 x 3.5 note card (with matching envie below) layers three more delightful patterns from Rockabilly and Whisper White Taffeta.  The "just for you" sentiment is from the new Oval All Stamp Set (Occasions Mini), heat embossed in black, cropped with a Large Oval Punch and layered over the "blazing hot" new Scallop Oval Punch (Occasions Mini).

Finally, this snazzy coordinating 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 envelope pulls together in a flash using a Scor-Pal and these directions.  A Scallop Border Punch shapes up Whisper White card stock for a luscious accent.
