She Believed Flat Gift Box with Anet - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. 

I love making my own background paper and with the new Couture Creations Gel Printing Plate it becomes even easier to create Press Prints to use as backgrounds. I made a Flat Gift Box using the Lucy's Every Day Outline Stamp Collection from Couture Creations.

I found the inspiration from Angelina's Blog.

Step by Step Instructions:

For all the measurements to create the Flat Gift Box just follow my video tutorial below.

I first trimmed Seafoam Cardstock, score it and fold the score lines. I used the Couture Creations Corner Cutter and Tabletop General Purpose Scissor to cut the corners and create the box.

I then cut the Die-Cut Technique Press Print I created with the Gel Printing Plate and adhere it onto the box using Couture Creations Turbo Tacky Glue.

If you unfamiliar to the Gel Printing Plate or just want to familiarize yourself again just visit my Gel Printing Plate Technique Blog Post.  I made Four Videos showing you how to create with the Gel Plate.

I then cut Blending Card and stamped the Lucy's Every Day She Believed Stamp using the Stamp and Colour Outline Ink Pad Soft Black. I coloured it with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers and adhere it onto the Box using 3D foam dots.

Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers Combinations:

Bird: 5305, 401, 7528, 444, 327, 323, 319, White Gel Pen
Tree Trunk: 7565, 479, 462
Leaves: 9544, 2288, 377
Sky: 9421

I heat emboss the Press Print with the Lucy's Every Day She Believed Stamp Sentiment, fussy-cut it with the Couture Creations Detailing Scissors and adhered it onto the box front using 3D foam dots.

I added the die-cuts that were press printed with the Gel Printing Plate.

I then die-cut Seafoam Cardstock with the Peaceful Peonies Tall Branches and the Press Print with the C'est La Vie Geraniums. I also I added Pharaoh Liquid Drops 3D Pearls to finish.
