Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Inspired By A....Book, Film or Song

It's Sweet Stampin' time for me again, and our theme this week is INSPIRED BY...A FILM, BOOK OR A SONG. I'd love you to join us and take part, in the fun - but just remember your project MUST include a stamped element. So to get you in the mood here's my card for you - I hope you like it.  I opted to make a box card and I chose 'Alice In Wonderland' and the Mad Hatter. I've also included a tutorial on how to made a box card to fit in an A5 envelop if you would like to use it.

Here's What I did
After creating my box and adding my papers to it. I die cut flowers attaching some to acetate strips.   I then printed off my digi stamps - the Mad Hatter, cups, teapots and cakes. I coloured them all in with Copics and also attached these to acetate strips. The quotes were printed and die cut and coloured with pan pastels.  The red & green small cups I drew myself.  Everything was then placed inside the box.  You'll also spot the odd playing card (including the Queen of Hearts) - these are actually mini cards from a Xmas cracker.

Click the link here to the Box Card Template I've created.  It's a bit lengthy sorry, but it does have illustrations.  You can open, download and/or save it. FYI, if you want to make the box height and/flaps slightly larger or smaller just increase or decease the measurements I've given you. Any questions just email me...have fun!

Cardstock/Paper: White card, Neenah Colouring CS, MME 'The Sweetest Thing' paper Pad,
Copics:  E0000, E000, E00, E11, E35, R20, R30, C-0, C-1, C-2, C-3, C-5, Y00, Y02, Y08, Y17, R20, R27, R29, R32, YG03, YG11, YG17, B0000
