A Touch Of Elegance .... With Blackberry Bliss

My daughter asked me to make some 'pretty' boxes to hold some of the gifts she had brought her friend for her birthday :o)

I decided to go with a little elegance :o)

I started with this tall box - it's 8" high. I had already decided on Blackberry Bliss card stock.  The Gold embossing powder was still sat on my desk from another project, so I decided to try them together ..... Perfect! :o)

I used the lovely flourish from the Everything Eleanor stamp set and stamped it in Versamark before heat embossing with the Gold. This was then set onto a mat of Gold Foil. 

Of course I had the perfect ribbon to use with our Gold Satin - so tied it into a bow around the top mats.

And the contents ............... ?

As you can see ...... we definitely needed a classy box! :o)

This little gift box is just 4" by 3 1/4" - a simple box with a lid.

This one holds some hand made soap :o)

A matching card was needed, so I kept it simple .... again going for the embossed panel layered over a Gold Foil mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hey You stamp set and punched it out using the Decorative Label punch. I then punched out another from Gold Foil and cut it in half - positioning one half at the top and the other at the bottom to look like another mat.

 I coloured the Pearls with our Gold Dazzle marker.
