GROWING IN UNITY 2013 - DAY 3

We have reached half way!
Day Three of Five!
And just 4 more days until my birthday...

And for today I have a gift box:
The box was cut with my Silhouette SD.
I used a template from Kelleigh Ratzlaff called

I used two different stamp sets for this project.
I stamped the darker layer with Versamark ink with the biggest flower from
The Sentiment frame is from the same set.
I bought that set a LONG while ago (like a year!), and just NOW got around to breaking it out!


The main image and sentiment are from WISHING YOU JOY.
I really love this Itty Bitty set.
(stay tuned or Friday... You WILL see this set again!)

I stamped the image in white and then used a light colored copic marker to add some depth to the flowers.


This little box is so prefect to fill with candy and given to someone for a birthday or the like.
The template is so simple to use, weather you are using an electric die cutting machine, or print and cutting by hand. 

Thanks for visiting my blog, and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win TWO Itty Bitty's!!! (just think, you could get the flower and sentiment set that I used today... for free!)

That's the end to my WEDNSDAY.

HAPPY HUMP DAY PEOPLE!

What a fun shape for the box. I love the subtle stamping...one of my all time favorite itty bitties too!

Wow! I had to reread your details to realize that the 'poppy-like' flowers weren't embossed! (That's where you used the white copic to add detail, I think...) What a beautiful layered, dimensional-looking image. And, I have to say, learning it's your bday week, reminded me that it's my hub's, too. (Well, on the 4th. ) Do you have any great guy card ideas? Lol

Wow-I love the dimensional look on this box. I had to reread your details, to realize that the 'poppy-like' flowers weren't embossed but that you used white copic to accent them. I can't get over how they "pop" out from the background. Interesting box shape-I'll have to try it. Thanks! :)
