Pink Treat Box

This is a treat box that I made using Snowy Hug from Magnolia Stamps. I used 2 shades of pink. One is a couple shades darker than the other. The pinks are called st. valentino (darker) and sugar & spice (lighter). I used st. valentino for the base. I embossed a strip of white cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and my sizzix machine. I backed the strip of white in sugar & spice. I did the same thing with the piece of white cardstock for the background. I used a white heart paper doily and backed it in sugar and spice and added it to the upper left corner of the back of the box. I then punched out my sentiment, "May this Christmas be as special as you are", using a 1 3/8" circle punch and backed it in sugar & spice and then in white. I punched out a 2" scalloped circle in st. valentino and then backed it in white. I added the sentiment to the scalloped circle and then added it to the heart. I made a bow out of light pink ribbon and added it to the top of the sentiment. I added crystal stickles to the white around the sentiment.

I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. This week's challenge at Paper Sundaes is to cut it out. So I cut out the image and added it to the bottom right corner of the box. I added crystal stickles to the snow on the broom and at the bottom of the image. I added white flocking to the hats and jacket on the image. I added 2 pink rhinestones for the buttons on the image for the challenge at Beary Sweet Challenges (pearls & gems). I punched snowflakes out of the st. valentino cardstock and then smaller snowflakes out of white cardstock. I added the smaller white snowflake to the larger pink snowflake. I added one to each side of the box, one to the upper right back corner and then one to the bottom upper left corner. I added a pink rhinestone to the center of each one.

I am also entering this box into the following challenges:
