I have some new crafty goodies that I hadn't used and I knew this would give me the perfect opportunity to use my rosehip wreath stamp, a Kraft gift box and some new patterned paper. I love the SU! Kraft gift boxes, they're a great size, really sturdy and come all ready to decorate and assemble - so easy! I inked the wreath with VersaMark, heat embossed with Early Espresso powder and fussy cut the image. I coloured the rosehips using a blender pen with Real Red ink and I then added Glossy Accents to make them raised and shiny. While that was drying I cut the patterned paper pieces, glued those to the sides and I cut a Real Red square to go on the top of the box. I dry embossed it with a folder and glued that in place. I adhered Real Red CS all around the sides of the box and then added a strip of brown gingham ribbon. I tied a bow separately and attached that with a glue dot. I stamped and die cut the sentiment and then popped up the wreath and one end of the flag banner.
Here's a different angle.
Here's a close up of the shiny rosehips.
