thank you gift set

Lookit! my first gift set thingy! wow! It was really fun to make and I think it would make an awesome thank you gift. You could fill the box with candy or any other little gift you want to give. I love all the embossing I did on this project. To make the "clear" dragonflys all you do is stamp with colour-less embossing ink, emboss with clear ep and sponge some ink around it.

You can't really tell to much in the photos but I sanded the white embossed flower a bit and sponged ink in the cracks.

I inked around the edges of the box a bit to give it a worn look and to make it stand out more.
