Something Different Saturday

Good Morning,

Following on from my stolen post earlier in the week this weeks something different is on the theme of inspiration (or direct copying) from other bloggers.  I have made my version of Becca (Amazing Paper Grace)'s filigree box.  I bought the Enchanted labels 28 die especially in order to make this box.

I wasn't intending to post this however with my GC issues I haven't had the time to finish the other box's I was going to post.

I have changed the design slightly by adding in the offcuts from a piece of brown card into the filigree sections on the lid.  I have used the harlequin embossing folder from spellbinders on the front of the cards and the box.  The panel on the front is decorated with Liquid pearls and is my first go with this amazing product so they are not all uniform (you should see my cake icing it's terrible!) you can tell this in the next picture of the box alone.

I made some simple cards to go into the box with the same Core'dinations cardstock & embossing folder.  The image on the front is one I printed out ages ago from the interweb.  These were simply decorated with some sanding on the embossing and a piece of vintage coloured lace.

Although it looks complicated its quite simple, the tutorial from Becca is here

I have made this in a different size however can't claim the idea as mine!  I will use some time, if I can find any as the summer season is starting here and so my evening job is getting busier, to get my collection of box's finished and photographed!
