Anything But A Square

Hi everyone!

It is Digi Choosday Day and this week I decided to go a wee bit mad and opted to make a 3D project. Now - Scatty Jan in the team is the Queen of 3D projects, but I thought I would give it a go and see what happened.  I'll warn you now, this post is a bit heavy on the photos.

Of course the best collection ever was here to help me with ideas and that is of course the Winston Collection. I adore this collection and I find myself coming back to it again and again.  I opted to use Etty Shy and I used the precoloured image.  You can get her as a digi image on her own if you wish and all the links are at the bottom of the post.

So armed with Winston as my inspiration I opted to make an exploding box. I have never made one of these before and with the help of my Cameo, I loved it!

I used two of the papers from the collection to decorate. On the lid I used one of the paper bows, sentiment and of course Etty to decorate - with a few gems......obviously!

I layered the base and the inside layer with the same papers and then decorated the main base with some of the sentiments from the collection.

For the next layer, I used embellishments from the collection to fit the 'theme' of the project.

Laid out it looks like this:

I love how this turned out and I would definitely make another one. Ok - I admit all the hard work was done by my Cameo - thank goodness as I cannot measure anything card related - but I was still very pleased with this. Most definitely not a square!
