Think INK Challenge


Hey Guys! I am ready for the Think INK Challenge over at Artful Inkables. We are supposed to make something we have never made before...a 3-D item or a technique that we have never done before. This is my very first "box ornament" and I used Artful Inkables "Paper Snowflakes" stamps on both the card and the box. This set is so versatile that you can really use it on any Christmas card with any other image.


I made my little box ornament from looking at another bigger box. I used four squares of ivory cardstock and silver embossed the images with Versamark Ink and Fine Silver Embossing Powder. I put them on all four sides of the box and then used my Spellbinders Snowflakes to add to the ribbon on top of the box. The card was made with ivory cardstock and DP from Hobby Lobby. I had some silver glitter paper and used my circle Nestabilities for the larger image. The ribbon actually came from a birthday present that I received last year...I collect and save tooooo much...LOL!


Do Click on the picture so you can see the details...I am out the door now to get to work...Here's wishing you all a very safe and happy weekend!! Thanks for your visit!
