Heart Shaped Treat Box - Layers of Color Project

Good morning everyone...I have another Layers of Color project for you today. I have had a tin heart shaped box for a couple of years and thought it would be perfect for a Valentine's treat box for my Mother. She loves pretty and frilly things so I went a little heavy on the lace and pearls!!! First I laid the top of the box on my Blush Blossom cardstock, traced the heart shape, and cut it out. Then the Natural Flourish Art Stencil from Layers of Color was sponged with Fresh Snow to create the flourish pattern. The large flower from Layers of Color Flowering Gems set was stamped with Blush Blossom onto white cardstock, cutout, sponged, distressed, and layered with dimensionals. A big, gold heart shaped button was added to the center.

The leaves from the same set were stamped with Sage Shadow, cutout, and attached with glue dots.


The smaller flowers from the same set were stamped with Blush Blossom, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. Porcelain roses were added to the centers and the big butterfly, lace, pearl flourish, wrinkled seam binding, and twine finish off the top.
Gathered lace and a trim piece were added around the sides of the top and a piece of Anna Griffin dp was added around the outside edges of the bottom.
Thanks for stopping by....hope you have a super AWESOME day!!!

Ink: Fresh Snow
Paper: Blush Blossom, Anna Griffin dp
Accessories: Layers of Color Natural Flourish Art stencil, Lace, Wrinkled Seam Binding, Pearl Flourish, Porcelian Flowers, Twine, Heart shaped Button, Trim, Metal Butterfly from Redlead.
