A gift box for Madelaine...

 A gift box for a friend.. 

En liten present till en vän....

The box is covered in dry embossed cardstock sealed with Matte Medium 
and then painted with acrylic paints from Decoart. 

Lådan är täkt med embossad cardstock, ett lager Matte Medium och sedan
målad med akrylfärger från Decoart.

 First I painted the box brown then I dry brushed the raised areas with a gold 
metallic.  To get the green tarnished look I used Decoart Antiquing cream

Först målade jag lådan mörkbrun och torrborstade sedan med en guld färg.
Massor med grön Decoart Antiquing cream för att få den att se ärgat ut.

One of Spellbinders wonderful 3D embossing folders...

En av mina favorit embossing foldrar från Spellbinders.

The lock from Rox stamps..

Låset från Rox Stamps....

Lace on the edge of the lid.

Lite spets under färgen runt kanten på locket.

Two layers of cardstock. I used an embossing folder from Darice for the 
card underneath and then added a die cut (Die from Spellbinders) on top

Två lager papper, först ett lager cardstock embossat i en folder från Darice och
sedan en die cut skuren med en die från Spellbinders ovanpå.

I had a hard time finding a gift for Madelaine that would fit in the box,
 not a great idea to make the box first and then go shopping for a birthday 
present LOL

När asken var klar insåg jag att jag borde nog hitta en present också....inte 
världens bästa ide att göra asken först och hitta en present i rätt storlek efteråt.

I lined the box with a golden tissue paper.

Asken är fodrad med ett tunt guldpapper

Another die from Spellbinders, I wish that it was my own handwriting...
but NO .. a laser print. Aged and distressed with acrylic paint.

Ännu en Spellbinders die, jag önskar verkligen att jag skrivit texten själv....
men NEJ det är en utskrift från laserskrivaren (fördelen är i alla fall att den
går att läsa) Lite akrylfärg för att få den se gammal och sliten ut.

I started out with a box, a pile of embossed cardstock, lace and some metal feet...
...and as always I changed my mind along the way, I ended up using Hitch 
Fasteners from Tim Holtz for feet instead of the ones I planned to use.

Jag hittade en papplåda i gömmorna, embossade lite cardstock och skar ut
några remsor med en Spellbinders die. Som vanligt ändrade jag mej under 
resans gång och bytte ut dom fötter jag tänkt använda mot Hitch Fastneners
från Tim Holtz. Konstigt att det aldrig blir som man tänkt sig :)

  1. Now that is just unbelievable. The transformation is so wonderful. Had a great laugh at making the box first and then filling it... :)
    You inspire me...thanks for that.

  2. WOW Angelica! This gift box is beyond beautiful. It's mystical and vintage all rolled into one. I can image the recipient opening the lid whilst a bright gold light shines from within the box and the magic begins. Love your work! Karen.x
