|My oh my - so pretty!|
Here are a couple of more photos:
|We used the August Stamp of the Month, Baroque Borders to stamp the scrolly designs on all sides of the box. Since these boxes are glossy, only the Staz-On ink would work without smeering.|
|We used black and mint green silky ribbons around the box, using the Tombo adhesive. We also used the CTMH Sparkles - Clear Assortment (Z1752) around the sides and one bitty one on the top!|
The things we both LOVE about our design, are the little flowers on the front. We used the CTMH Petals Paper Flowers that are black and white, and distressed the edges of them with black ink, and then put CTMH Green Glitz Glitter Gel on the edges and surface of the flowers. We layered the flowers with several different sizes of flowers, and we died some of them black using the black ink and a sponge (see first box above on right). The glitter added so much pizzaz!
Inside the box lid, we put a little oval tag with a sweet saying, which is from the My Acrylix Sweet Moments stamp set. We used the little saying "It's moments like this we want to hold in our hearts forever", and stamped in black on an oval piece of Colonial White cardstock, also using one of the pretty borders from this same stamp set. Then we put green glitter around the edges and topped with a tiny ribbon knot. And of course, we had to add a sparkley! Are these cute or what?
