Oops, forgot this one!

I forgot to include this box in my post yesterday... which is lucky really as I don't have the camera today and can't take the pic of the card I really wanted to show you. 

But back to the box - it's another of those quick little 5-10-15-20 boxes, with the sides pinched so that the top will close. 

Again, flash photography has destroyed the background stamping... this time it was the delicate little flowers from Simply Said. I coloured the image with a Real Red marker - the fine tip really came into its own for the tiny flowers. 

Stamps: Simply Said (p39)
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Gingham ribbon - red (p86), Gingham ribbon - black (p86), household staple.

  1. cute boxes! i know what you mean about flash photos hiding the background. I usually don't remember to take photos until the evening or first thing in the morning so I'm stuck with artificial lighting and flash photography.

  2. great job on the box... flashes seem to be the baine of craftmakers... TFS

  3. love the box and the red is stunning. I can;t see where the flash has ruined your si always stunning

  4. I really like how you positioned the heart in relation to the mat. Small thing that is very eye-catching. Way to go!

  5. This is adorable!!! I'm looking into a light box to take my pictures in. I get them done during the day but it always snows so no sun. This is wonderful even with the lighting problem!

  6. Really love this vibrant red!! Another beautiful box!

  7. Very sweet - love these boxes you're making. So easy too. CC

  8. very cute. love the stapled gingham ribbon!
