JustRite Papercraft Challenge #70 - Pretty Papers

I created this pretty box for the JustRite Papercraft Friday Challenge #070 - Pretty Papers. The goal of the challenge is to make your own background paper using a JustRite Papercraft stamp.  I chose to use the pretty flower from "Cast All Your Cares" stamp set and stamped it all over a light colored patterned paper from The Paper Studio.  I colored my flowers with Copic markers, then cut 1 Spellbinder Label Seventeen from my finished background paper. 

Next, I cut a strip from my stamped background paper for my box walls.  Then I stamped, embossed, colored and adhered the "Classic Scallop Border" and "Lace Borders" for the top and bottom walls. I cut a rectangle out of black cardstock, and the largest Label Seventeen out of ivory cardstock.  I adhered my rectangle to my ivory Label Seventeen panel, then constructed the walls of my box on that same piece. 

For the top of my box, I cut out another ivory Label Seventeen (Largest) for the base.  Next, I went one size smaller and cut out the black piece. Then I adhered my stamped patterned paper to the black Label Seventeen, then  added that panel to my ivory base.  I stamped and embossed the frame from "Cast All Your Cares", then cut it out with Spellbinder Labels Sixteen.  Next, I stamped my sentiment in the center with black ink, colored and glitter the edges for my finishing touches.  I adhered that panel with pop dots to the top of my box.  I stamped several flowers from "Cast All Your Cares", colored and layered them for a 3-D flower.  Finally, I embellished with a black satin bow topped with my 3-D flower and decorative pearls.
