ScoreBoard ATC Box

I'm ready for spring- aren't you?

Here's a look at a couple of dies from my new collection, From The Heart. I made a ScoreBoard ATC Box from matboard and matching ATC card. The box will also hold candy, jewelry, small treasures, business cards, gift cards and lots of other fun things. There are Movers & Shapers that coordinate but I chose to leave the box plain this time.
Here are the Sizzix dies I used:

658056  Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Box, Artist Trading Card

658053  Sizzix Bigz Die - Flower Layers w/Heart Petals

658050  Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Hearts & More Set

657721  Sizzix Bigz Die - Borders & Hydrangeas

657119  Sizzix Bigz Die - Leaves

657114  Sizzix Bigz Die - Flower Layers #9

658054  Sizzix ScoreBoards L Die - Gift Card Folder & Label

657184  Sizzix Movers & Shapers Die - ATC & Corners

Other Supplies:
ink, paper, tissue paper, buttons, stamp, drywall tape, Bazzill chipboard, Viva Decor Inca Gold- platinum, double sided adhesive, hand dyed seam binding, watercolor paper, adhesive pearl

  1. Cover a piece of matboard with some drywall tape. With a stencil brush, using a circular motion rub ink on through the tape, then peel it off. Don't worry about getting even coverage. 
  2. Run stencilled matboard through die cut machine using ATC Box die.
  3. Assemble box using strong double sided adhesive. 
  4. Rub brown ink along the edges of the box.
  5. Cut Heart Flower from off-white cardstock. Distress edges with brown ink. Position flower on box and add leaves and zigzag border. Add button to middle of flower. Adhere in place.
  6. Cut ATC card from heavy chipboard. Ink with platinum Inca Gold, rub off and buff.
  7. Cut leaves, zigzag border, heart flower, label, and hydrangea. 
  8. Cut smallest flower from 20 layers of tissue paper. Punch a hole in the middle and secure petals with brad. Fluff up. 
  9. Paint hydrangea using blue ink and water brush. Adhere two layers together.
  10. Stamp label and tie around box with seam binding. 
  11. Place card in box for a special person!

Hope you all have a great Valentine's Day! I don't know if you celebrate it like we do here in the States, but you never need an excuse to celebrate those you love. See you in two weeks!
