This is my scrapin Blog where I am going to keep all things I scrap about. I have discovered I love papercrafting and making things from paper and card. I have done crafts for years but have no record of them. Now I have decided it would be good to keep a record, so I am going to keep a record of everything I make so when I am forgetful I will be able to come back and go through my blog for a memory jog.
I needed to make the Bride and Groom boxes from Tags, bags, boxes and more 2 but wanted to see just how big I could make them. I put them on the mat at 11.5 inches using a 12x24 mat the Bride comes out at 7 inches and the groom at 9.24 inches. The groom is much bigger than the bride but in saying this he fits all the chocolates from the Cadburys Favourite box in him.
With the bride I used the ebosser and embossed the front and back of her dress then I put a versamark pad to the embossing and used StampinUp heat and stick and then dazzelling details to glitter the back and the Stampin emboss Iridescent Ice to glitter emboss the front. The sad thing is the glittering embossing has not come out well in the pictures. I tied StampinUp satin whisper white ribbon round the waist of the bride and put a bow of the same ribbon on the back.
The groom I put together and embossed dots on the box then added clear buttons. I decided I wanted to see what the Log Cabin Glimmer spritz from StampinUp would do so sprayed the box with this, what I noticed is that the clear buttons coloured with the spritz. I added Love you as a sentiment as it is coming up to Valentines day and I thought this would be appropriate.

From the back still hard to see the glitter which shows well IRL.
