Well I am the proud owner of the new Large Letters Framelits Die and was dying to use them on a worthy project. So here is what I came up with :-
I was really impressed by the technique demonstrated by Jan B in her tutorial on how to create a shadow box.
Well I tried it out on a card - its a different technique to the one I used on a previous project and far more simple too. Here is a link to7 Jan's video for those of you who have not seen it yet.
Anyway - I decided to use the basics for the shadow box to create a beautiful chocolate box for a large Galaxy chocolate bar and I am really delighted with how it turned out.
I used Black 12 x 12 inch cardstock and made the wrapper/sleeve for the box using beautiful papers from the Pop of Pink 12 x 12 pack of Speciality DSP Pack.
I die cut the word "Yum !" from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Large Letters Framelits Die. Now - yes these are expensive. But as a serious papercrafter who makes a lot of personalised cards and scrap book pages, I saw them as a great investment. I know I shall get so much use from them.
I love the way my box turned out. I have made a video tutorial for it which you can view here:-
I do hope you love the box as much as I do. I shall be adapting it for quite a number of upcoming projects.
Thank you for passing by today.
