Day 7 of 12 Days of Christmas on PCP

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me...uh oh...a little tired of birds, so we get to create something that is all black and white with a touch of color. I made a B/W one for day 4. Hmmm. Okay, grabbed a couple Inkadinkado stamps for this one. Stamped the center sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white EP. Stamped the flourish with glue and sprinkled with silver glitter. Rounded the corners, inked the edges with silver, added the tiny rhinestones and blue snowflakes. I was surprised, took about 10 minutes to do this one.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Flourish, Christmas Silhouettes.
Paper: The Paper Studio.
Ink: Versamark.
Accessories: White embossing powder, glitter, glue, rhinestones, snowflakes, corner rounder.

I had the idea for this box, so went ahead and did it to add to the pool. I used the largest Spellbinders Labels 2 to cut the top and bottom from craft board, inked the edges. Made the side of the box with regular cardstock, stamped it with scrolls from Verve Grateful Elegance, and glued it to the bottom. Put Black Diamond Stickles around the base. Cut two more of the Labels 2 dies from CS, stamped the larger with the square scroll stamp from same Verve set. Then for the top label stamped it with sentiment from Verve Fairy Tales. Inked the edges of both of those with red and attached them to the box top on dimensional. Added the red flowers, putting rhinestones in the center, and also 3 rhinestones in each corner. The second picture is the open box, showing the hinges made from cardstock attached to the inside. I stamped the lower part with scroll from
Verve Filigree Fantasy, and rounded the corners
of the upper part.

Stamps: Verve.
Paper: Craftboard, The Paper Studio.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Die cut flowers from Michaels, rhinestones, Stickles.

I think you did great on the box, Nancy! LOVE the label die for the top and bottom of the box! I'll have to try that on my next one!
