Today's project is a matching gift box and card set.  This is a great way to package a gift card for that special guy in your life.  Especially if that guy loves s'mores, but let's be honest, who doesn't love s'mores?!

The s'mores gift box is part of a the Camp Firefly cut file set from SVG Cuts.  I used my Silhouette to cut it out.  I hid all the holes that are supposed to cut from the graham crackers, because I wanted to emboss the crackers instead.  I used the Swiss Dots folder, the debossed side, for my crackers.  I inked all the edges of the cracker pieces with tea dye Distress Ink and the chocolate pieces with vintage photo Distress Ink.  I also inked the marshmallow with tea dye Distress Ink to make it look nice and toasted.

The card is 6 1/4"x4 1/2."  I used brown card stock for the card base, then cut a kraft mat at 6"x4 1/4."  I cut some patterned pieces of card stock to create a sun burst shape for the top part of the card.  I then wrapped the card with brown ribbon.  I used my Cuttlebug to cut two circles from a Spellbinders Nestabilities die from brown and kraft card stock.  The raccoon is a Peachy Keen stamp.  I used their SVG file to cut it from white card stock, then stamped and colored it, adding glossy accents to its eyes and star dust Stickles to the fire.  I adhered it over the circle with foam tape.  The sentiment and other marshmallow are also from Peachy Keen.  I colored the edge of the marshmallow with some tea dye Distress Ink to make it look toasty.  The raccoon and marshmallow are from the Burnt Out Camping Raccoon set, the sentiment is from the May 2014 Stamp of the Month kit.

I cut another piece of kraft card stock at 6"x4 1/4" for the inside.  I then cut some white card stock at 5"x3 1/4" as a mat.  I cut a strip of patterned card stock at 1"x4."  The sentiment and the s'more are both from the May 2014 Stamp of the Month kit.  I used the SVG file to cut the s'more out as well.  I then paper pieced it and added a face.  I used some tea dye Distress Ink on it as well, also adding some glossy accents to its eyes.

I made this for the following challenges:
Scrappy Moms Stamps: BBQ (because it just isn't a good BBQ without s'mores for dessert)
Cardz TV: 3D masculine birthday
My Craft Spot: anything but a card
Exploring Cricut & More: anything goes
Peachy Keen: sketch (I flipped it)
