I was finally able to play with Dawn's new "Scattered Showers" stamp set from Papertrey ink again. I have been wanting to paper piece the line-art umbrella. I decided to pull out my Guide Lines paper again and make a little box. I need a little *something* to give to one of my friends and I thought this set would make a fun presentation!
I also paired it with the "Fresh Alphabet" stamp set. I have realized that I need to get a few more PTI alphabets; one is just not enough! I added a few details, but not too many because I didn't want to overwhelm the design. I didn't end up liking the dimensions that I made my box, so I had to do add some paper here and there to trick the eyes. I think it finally turned out okay.
I used my crop-a-dile big bite to make the holes on the side for the ribbon. I simply knotted it on the inside and then tied it in a bow on the top to secure the lid! Hopefully she will know how to get inside! LOL! I guess she could just tear into it if worse came to worse!
I am taking a little stamping break until Saturday's SFYTT, so stay tuned until then! It will be a good one, like always! Thanks for fluttering by!
