Card Box

I've finally finished this project that I started way back. Many thanks to Tracey Old for the idea. I enlarged mine quite a bit and it's 6½" x 5" with a height of 6". I wanted it big enough to hold square cards. For the box, I used Always Artichoke textured cardstock. The embellishments and paper are from the Secret Garden scrapping kit.
I did reinforce the inside and the lid with thick cardboard, so it's quite sturdy now. The lid closes with Basic Grey magnetic snaps.
My letters are Kaisercraft chipboard and covered in Pipedreamink opals 'The Nut'. A gorgeous brown.
Inside are the dividers made from Groovy Guava textured c/s and the tabs I used are from the Secret Garden scrapping kit. I punched the round tab punch through 4 of the square stickers in that kit to make up the rest of the tabs.
Excuse my printing. I figured since it's for me, I could write the months myself.
I'm pretty stoked with it actually and as soon as I've made sure those magnets are sticking properly, I'm going to put cards in it!!
Thanks for looking and commenting on my creations. I love receiving comments and reading them.
