Dare 2B Artzy

It's Dare 2B Artzy Friday here on my blog today.  I missed last Friday, but you are in for a treat today.

I have so much fun with this D2BA Retro Pattern set.  It was perfect for the Moxie Challenge this week, and I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I like the tag on a card look also. I also used D2BA Rose for the rose and the sentiment.  I embossed the entire rose, so in real life it is very shiny.  I colored in my retro squares with copics.

My next creations is a boxed set of cards.  I really like having these on hand for small gifts, and it works perfect for Fab & Funky - a set of cards.

I have given this direction before, but to make a box, take the size you want and add 2" to all sides, score 1" around all sides. Cut accordingly, and this will give you a 1" depth for your box.  Make the lid 1/16th" bigger, again, scoring 1" on all sides and cutting accordingly.  To decorate the top, cut a second piece of card stock to the size you want, decorate it, and then adhere it to the lid of your box. 
I used another image from Retro Pattern, and also from You.  I used washi tape to color the lid's edges.

That's it for my Dare 2B Artzy Friday.  I hope I have inspired you in some way!  See you tomorrow~

Thanks for stopping by~
