Anything But A Card - Texture


Over at Anything But A Card (ABAC) this week they are asking to see texture, so I decided to make another box using the flowers I'd made earlier in the week.


I made the box from my new Sizzix die (box candy drawer) using chipboard and then running through a couple of different colours of chocolate box core card.  I needed to use the crease plate for these as they were much thinner than the chipboard.


Once cut, I put them through the Cuttlebug stylized flowers embossing folder and sanded to lift off the brown and reveal the pinky / purple core colour.


I added a T!m idea-o-logy hitch fastener and a distressed flower to the front of the drawer to make a handle. 


A view from the side.


And finally with the drawer open.

What a gorgeous box Sam!! I love the flowers - of course - and I have that EB folder so I love that too. The flower strip is so versatile that I wonder what I ever did without it to be honest. Gorgeous colours too.
Glad you joined us at ABAC with this fab project.

What a lovely box! The subtle pattern adds the perfect amount of interest to the sides without taking away from the gorgeous grungy flowers on top! The drawer pull is wonderful too! Don't you just love how core paper adds so much without much effort!! Thanks so much for joining us at ABAC!

I also admired the wonderful pictures of your fur babies!! They are so sweet!!
