It's time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and this one is hosted by Deborah Smart. Instead of your everyday card challenge, Deborah made this one all about boxes.
I love decorating ready-made or found boxes but this time I decided to male a very special box with the Curvy Keepsake Box framelits. I chose to make my box out of the Vellum cardstock and then embossed the vellum using the Fluttering embossing folder. I loved all the raised butterflies on the vellum but to make them "pop" even more, I coloured each butterfly with my Stampin' Markers. That took a while.
For my base I used the soon-to-retire Floral Frames Framelits and the Leaflets Framelits. The butterflies on top of the box were cut with the Butterflies Thinlets. All along the edges of the Curvy Keepsake Box I heat embossed Gold embossing powder.
