Whilst the cats away! I'll share a "spell!"

Whilst I am through in Aberdeen this Sunday I thought I would set this to post rather than make you wait till Monday. 

Mmmm not the best photograph but you get the general idea. 

To make this box I have used Spellbinder Grand Hexagon Petal envelope die together with the A4 (yes I said A4) embossing folder Lattice.  Shame it's not the best photo for you to see the embossing.  I have also used a roll of acetate (I knew that roll I bought would come in handy but I'm blowed if I can remember where I got it from, you could use two sheets of A4) with Spellbinder dies Create a flake 3 and 2010 Snowflake pendant. 

The hexagon envelopes create the top and bottom of the box and I have used 8 of the snowflake die inside to create the 3D snowflake but you could use more, I recommend using paper rather than card for the snowflake as the top and bottom get too thick with card and you want to be able to thread ribbon and a bell to hang it up.  The snowflakes on the top are the 2010 pendant and Create a flake 3 layered on top with 3D foam.

Did I mention I'm loving the new A4 embossing folders?! 
Now all your boxes can be embossed too, all over, how neat is that?
Oh my a few dies and an embossing folder is all it takes to get this girl happy!  LOL.  ;)

I hope you are having a super weekend and I'll be back with more tomorrow.  Happy crafting!

Wow Erika, this is really stunning. Love it. Must check out the A4 embossing folders. I often wish some of my favourites were bigger. I sometimes emboss a bigger bit of card with some but as I'm sure you know some work better than others.

Hope you've had a good day at the Papeterie. What a nasty wet day it's been.

Hi Erika, what a beauty you left for us today. Did you say an A4 lattice embossing folder, must look into that. I just adore the A4 embossing folders, saves a lot of heartache trying to line up the smaller ones to get a larger pattern. Enjoy your day in Aberdeen. Look forward to big reveal tomorrow I hope.
