Today I am sharing a decorated wood box and a birthday card, which fits inside the box, that I have made for my Mother's Birthday. I think she's going to really LOVE this! My mom loves antiques so I tried to make this box and card look really vintage. I used one of my favorite paper collections "Fairy Rhyme by Prima". This collection has all kinds of cute chipboard embellishments, flowers and pearl swirls, which I included in my project too!
The box is a wood box which I painted a Warm White. Then I added the papers on the top of the box and on the inside top and bottom...see the pictures below! To give the projects some texture, after adding the papers, I stenciled using Heavy Gesso the butterflies onto the top of the box and butterflies and dot lines on the card before spraying them each using some of the wonderful colored sprays from Shimmerz! I have fallen in love with these sprays...they are so pretty with that shimmering effect they have when dry...check out the Shimmerz web site at www.shimmerzpaints.com . They have a great selection of colors to choose from!
To complete the project I decorated everything with lots and lots of embellishments...
Here is my finished box and card...enjoy!
