We were sponsored this week by DZDoodles, and the challenge was to use one of their box templates. So not a sketch, exactly!
I used the first box you'll see if you scroll down on their main page to where the templates are. I just blew it up to fit a 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock, and off I went!
I stamped my template with the snowflakes from Papertrey Ink's Peace Be Still set, and also the "Winter" sentiment from the same set, and embossed them with white powder. Then I folded the whole thing up, and added the snowflake tag at the top:
I used the largest flake from the same set, and cut it out using the coordinating die. I stamped in a silver pigment ink that I have - it's el-cheapo, which is why it is so pale, but I actually liked the effect. I then stamped the "Happy" that goes to my "Winter", and attached the flake to the box's handle with a mother of pearl button!
This box is the perfect size for a festive chocolate something-or-other....
Head on over to the ICS Blog to check out the challenge for yourself, and think outside of your box! Hardy har har...
