Dies R Us Shaped Cards

The Dies R Us challenge this time is shaped cards. I am always excited to use a die that has had minimal use again. I bought  these two dies to make a card for my husband's birthday a few years back and have used it occasionally but the shaped card challenge gave me a chance to use it again. I made a card and this little treat box for my husband's birthday this year. I will fill it with his favorite chocolate candies,  Since he loves anything to do with barns,  he will be excited. 

Here is the side view of the treat box. 

I used two dies from Elizabeth Crafts.
