Do you ever get an idea for a project you can’t get out of your head and you have to create it? Well this happened with an idea to make an Eiffel Tower shaped box using the image from the Artistic Etchings digital stamp set because then I can make it whatever size I like. I finally decided to create the box for this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Splash Challenge. The colors are Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz. These colors together remind me of spring.
I created the front of the box on My Digital Studio. I used the Blushing Bride polka dot background and enlarged the Eiffel Tower and colored it Pear Pizzaz. I then created an outline template of the tower and cut it out. I made the front and bottom of the box from chip board then adhered the Eiffel Tower image/DSP on the front and trimmed any uneven edges. The bottom of the box is slightly smaller so the top can fit over the sides from the bottom. The sides of the box are made from Very Vanilla CS. I also finished the inside with Very Vanilla CS and grosgrain ribbon. I plan on creating a tutorial for this box. As soon as complete it I’ll post it.
For the card I stamped the tower in Versamark and Pear Pizzazz ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The card also features Poppy Parade DSP from the In Color Hostess Level One paper pack. I embellished the box and the card with buttons created with the Sizzlit Buttons #5 die. I also embellished with loads of pearls. I hope these colors inspire you to create a project for spring.
