Poinsettia Box


As I was unpacking the new Holly Berry House stamps last night, I remembered this box I made YEARS ago! Actually, I don't remember making the box, I just remembered having it. Ha!

The stamp used for the box topper is Holly Berry's Persnickity Poinsettia Medium rubber stamp. It was stamped three times on white cardstock, and embossed with Detail Gold embossing powder. The stamped images were colored with Prisma Colored Pencils.

You can see from the image which layers were cut away, then stacked and popped up using foam tape. The center of the poinsettia is gold beads from the jewelry department at Michael's. They were adhered with JudiKins Diamond Glaze because it holds so well and dries clear. I'm pretty sure the box came from Michael's also.

I have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT to make. And let me tell ya, it's been HARD to keep this one a secret for so long. I'm dying to tell you, but I can't until tomorrow. So be sure to stop by tomorrow morning to see what it is. Okay? You're just going to love it! :-)

Until then...

You are SUCH a tease! I didn't know you had that streak in you! Love the poinsettia on that little trinket box and I love the word "persnicketty". I once had a co-worker who thought the word was "snicketty". But I digress don't I?
