Flowers & Swirls

Do you like to think outside the box or at least make boxes and decorate the outside? This week’s challenge at Innovative Stamp Creations is to create a box using ISC stamps. You can read more about the challenge here .

My creation - Flowers and Swirls:

I adjusted the measurements on the box to include the entire length of the swirl - so my box measures 5.25 x 3.75. The card is a gift card holder:

The back of the box is also decorated:

The flower is 5 layers - each embossed either in Chocolate Chip or Clear. The background paper is bleached - I just put some on my hands and flicked it (I made sure to be in my sink so that I would not get bleach everywhere). The swirl is embossed. Oh - I can’t forget about the sewing - I am really on a sewing kick right now (but only on paper LOL).

Our family had great news on Monday - My SIL does NOT have Cancer!!! We are all so thankful!
I hope you had a great day today!

Hiya KAT -
I'd LOVE private lessons on how to make this.

It's very elegant and chic. And again, it would look wonderful in blue......
