Elegant Emerald Box for Mint Lindor Chocolates

My daughter Kayleigh is amazing, she is kind, caring and beautiful inside and out.  As soon as I see her she cheers me up and she always makes me laugh.

Whenever Kayleigh goes shopping she always comes home with something for me, sometimes it’s something she’s seen that I can make a pretty box for or it’s a new chocolate she has found for us to try.

 

When Kayleigh came home with a box of Limited Edition Mint Lindor I just had to make a pretty box for them.

 

 

Instead of decorating the box with DSP I stamped the lovely spray of holly from the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set onto a sheet of Emerald Envy cardstock with Emerald Envy ink.  I really like the tone on tone effect you get when you use coordinating ink and cardstock, it’s one of the things that first drew me to Stampin’ Up!

 

 

How gorgeous is the swirly script on the To you with Love sentiment?  It looked stunning after heat embossing it with gold embossing powder. I reckon this would look good with any metallic embossing powder, don’t you?

 

 

I want to say a big thank you to Kayleigh for buying these chocolates.  I hope you like the Emerald box I made for these yummy chocolates, Emerald is also Kayleighs birth stone.

Product List

 

*When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock.   I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made.  When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock.*
