Katzelkraft DT - gift box

Hi everyone and best wishes to you all for a very happy new year, I hope your celebrations were good :D! 

It's my day on the Katzelkraft blog today and I've made a little gift box  from kraft card and stamps from the beautiful  Nature plate. After scoring the box and before gluing it together I stamped around each side of the box base and lid and a motif in the centre of the lid and they were all embossed with white embossing powder . I added a bit of colour with a couple of copic markers and then after gluing and allowing to dry I sponged all the edges of the box base and lid with walnut stain distress ink and lightly with white Brilliance ink over the top of the brown. I finished off with a pretty ribbon.
Enjoy your day.

Oh! This is a terrific little box.Love your coloring and the stamp designs.Love boxes like this, the only trouble is I put things in them and forget they are there, but I suppose the good thing is, its such a nice surprise for me when I do open them lol.

Beautiful bax Bev and the stamped images are so gorgeous and in such rich colours which go perfectly with the ribbon. Love it Chanelle xxx

That box is delightful, Chris! The colour combo is gorgeous and whoever gets that with something nice inside will be one very lucky person!
I'm losing track of who I've sent Happy New year messages to so if this is a reapeat, I hope yours is doubly happy!

Hi Chris!
You make such beautiful things and this one is no exception. I love the way you have stamped your beautiful box. It is colored so lovely and the ribbon is just the right color to bring that color out on the stamp. Beautiful job and Happy New year to you.

Hi Chris - Happy New Year, hope it brings you all you wish for wrapped in lots of love, joy and laughter!!
Stunning creation - such beautiful colours and images.
Could you tell me (when you've time LOL) where you get your kraft cs - I'm struggling at the mo and resorting to using cards which is a bit wasteful!!
