Charming Box Sneak Peek

I needed a little something for some neighbors that just moved in. I had the idea to do a simple card with my new Window Dressing set (Lev 3 Hostess set in the new catalog to be released Aug 11th) and some acetate for windows, then I stumbled upon this adorable box with the idea I had in mind for my card. So instead of a card, I HAD to try this box. Isn't this the cutest!! I first kreated all my score lines for my box and then stamped out my window in Close to Cocoa ink onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock. Then cut out my 'windows' with my hobby blade and placed a piece of acetate/transparency (thanks to my hubby for bringing me a piece home from work pronto) behind the window. Then inked up my shutters and precious little girl in Close to Cocoa and stamped them onto Watercolor Paper. I used my Aquapainter and watercolored the shutters with Apricot Appeal and the darling little girl with Pixie Pink and Close to Cocoa. I used my Scallop Punch on a piece of Apricot Appeal DSP to create my 'window valance'. I placed my little girl peering out her window, applied the 'welcome' letter rub-ons (from Take Note rub-ons) and then assembled the box. Placed a white grosgrain ribbon at the top for my handle and this darling box is ready to be filled and delivered to welcome our new neighbors.
Hope you like it!

For now, go kreate!

PS I'll be going away for a long weekend with lots of family, so won't have time to scrap or post :( But I'll be back Monday with something new - I hope! Enjoy the weekend everyone!!
