Frantage boxes Demo

Snow Village Scene Box
I have been inspired by a design of box by Fran Seiford from Stampendous that I made with her in September-so here is my own idea using a Village Scene stamp.  Print onto white card, using  Versafine Onyx Black inkpad.  Add coloured pencils...then Cear emboss (I used Crystal by Stampendous -it is very sparkly).  The plain wooden box was covered with clear embossing ink and covered with Aged Aqua embossing powder.  Heat to finish.   Add clear ink to edges of box lid, add Aqua powder, & heat to finish.  Glue card panel securely to top of box.   Add clear ink to surrounding edges, and add more Aqua powder to "FRAME" the card panel on top of box! 

Box Lid
 This Santa - from Hobby Art St Nick set makes a lovely box too.  Same technique - but different colours!  I could not resist the Aged Scarlet embossing powder - very apt don't you think?  I printed him with Crimson Red Versafine inkpad - a perfect red for this image. I have added some Crushed Ice and Tea stained Mica flakes to the corners for extra texture.
St Nick Box with Aged Scarlet embossing powder!
Here you can see the full box and how good the wooden sides of the box take the embossing powder.   This could be adapted for any time of the year!
