I am just addicted to these boxes! LOL I've had the Love It brass template for a while, but never had the coordinating stamp set. Well, on Easter, my very good friend Kathy gave the stamp set to me as a gift! I was SO EXCITED! I couldn't believe it! Thank you, Kathy! I really don't think you know how surprised and grateful I am for my wonderful gift! I had to use it right away! :) If you don't have (or haven't seen) the Love It brass template, it is also a paper piercing template. So, all of those pierced holes you see around the big flowers are from the template! Very cool, huh? I thought it would look neat to make a box and not only dry emboss the flowers using the template, but use the pierced holes for faux stitching so that it looks like each flower is stitched on. I don't think the picture really does the box justice, but in real life it's very pretty with lots of dimension! If you haven't tried one of these boxes yet, I warn you that you will become addicted too! :) Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Love It, Paper Tray; Ink- VersaMagic in Pixie Dust, Sea Breeze, Aloe Vera and Sahara Sand; Paper- Kraft, Certainly Celery; Accessories- Love It brass template, paper piercer, small and large oval punches, May Arts ribbon.
