My love for American Crafts DP!

Good Morning!
Did you all enjoy the weekend?
Our weather was so nice on Saturday but Sunday...it was downhill...lol....lots of wind and blowing snow...YUCKY!
I stayed inside where it was warm and dry!
This was a card I made for Sunday's Featured Stamper Judy aka Jaydekay. I CASED her cards HERE.
I love this American Crafts DP and matching ribbon!! It's so bright and fun!!
Stamps: Stampendous Changito Bouquet, Best Yet; Cardstock: Old Olive, Choc chip, White and American Crafts DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: American Crafts Ribbons, Copics, Rectangle nesties, Small corner rounder punch, Dimensionals
Since I had my bin of American Crafts Designer Paper I out and the weather turned quite nasty...I decided to make another All Boxed Up set using the DP. There is no stamping on this project. The cards inside the box are plain janes and can be used for anything!
I used these basic supplies:
Cardstock: Old Olive, Choc Chip, PTI white and American Crafts DP
Accessories: American Crafts Ribbon, Choc Satin Ribbon, Scalloped Edge Punch, Circle Nesties
This was a super easy project but does take some time. I can't seem to print the templates out on my cardstock so I now have a template with the scoring and cutting marked off.
You can buy this template from PTI. It's one of Lauren's Timeless Templates and is called All Boxed Up.
An open shot of the All Boxed Up set:
Here are the first and second cards:
Here are the third and fourth cards:

I have to agree. AC makes some gorgeous paper and ribons. Your card is just darling. Fun boxed set too. Is it a gift for someone? I've been wondering what you do with ALL your cards. You make so many.
