Sunday Stamper Week 103

The theme over at Hels blog for Sunday Stampers this week was red. I was able to incorporate my red theme with a gift box to match my sons birthday card which I showed you yesterday.

The dimensions of the gift box are ATC size - 3.5" by 2.5".... so obviously, I wasn't giving him ATC's because they won't quite fit in the box! His gift was a little smaller, but it gave me an excuse to experiment with another ATC size project.

As with his card, I used Kaisercraft papers, although they are quite heavily inked, so it is hard to tell just quite what is underneath! I used Tim Holtz 'life's possibilities' stamps and Kaiser 'rewind' stamps. The clock face with inked with Fired Brick distress ink and clear embossed. I have also highlighted his age (how convenient of Mr Holtz to include the number '14' on one of his stamps!) with some circle punches.

Thanks for stopping by
