Curvy Keepsake Box Die

I am in love with the Curvy Keepsake Box Die from SU!  It makes an elegant little gift box & is such a perfect size.  

This fortnight the team at CASE-ing the Catty are taking inspiration from boxes & bags in the Holiday Catalogue, so I just had to make a box from the curvy keepsake box die.  :)  I used the red box on page 11 of the Holiday Catty as an inspiration for my project, as I think the print (washi tape) panel looks fabulous with the solid colour box.  I used a print (DSP) panel, then took it a step further by lining the underside of the other panels with crumbcake cardstock for further contrast. 

Here is my project:-

The tag dies that come with the box are really sweet & dainty.  I discovered the oval one was the perfect size for this image from the For the Birds stamp set.  It has been stamped in Versamark, then Black Memento Ink & heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  It's been coloured with Blendabilities markers.  A double espresso baker's twine bow completes the project.

I am on a little holiday at the moment, staying with my crafting bestie, Lynne.  You can see what Lynne created with the Curvy Keepsake Box die here.

You can see all the beautiful design team projects, as well as play along at the challenge here (click on the graphic):-

While I still had the cherry cobbler cardstock out (& Lynne was busy cutting LOTS of Christmas boxes), I decided to make another curvy keepsake box, just a little different from the one above, lol:-

This 3D toadstool was so much fun to create.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)
