Polkadoodles challenge - Add Texture

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are


Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are adding texture to our creations.


I have had another really busy week with work this week and I need to take a thank you gift to a friend who helped me out. I decided a pretty gift box with their favourite chocolates would be a fun gift. I also used a star shape, because they were a shining star in my week.


Here it is:


I started with some plain pale pink card and cut out the stars. Then I embossed one star using an starburst embossing folder. By cutting some strips and scoring and folding them before gluing them around the edge of the stars, I made a top and bottom for the box.


I wrapped some lace around the edge and added a cute topper from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Collection, along with some paper flowers and a button from the Winston Deluxe collection.

Here you can see the inside:



And one more look:



Happy stamping until next time...
