IBS November Release Day 4: Vintage Garden Seed Packets

Good morning and welcome back. 
Today is day 4 and the very last day of the Inspired by Stamping November Release. 
If you have missed the first three days, here are the links for you to follow:
Today, we are showcasing Garden Seed Packets, a 4×8 stamp set that contains 16 stamps. This is our first stamp set of our vintage flower/vegetable series. The frame is extra large and measures 3×4, perfect for taking center stage and for your scrapbook pages too. This set also comes with 3 vintage flowers and 8 garden sentiments.
Ahhhhh...Right!?!?!? LOL
I am in heaven...LOVE these new stamps!!  
I really thought outside the box and came up with a box for today's creation!!  :) 
I stamped the frame four times on kraft cardstock, twice on acetate and embossed with white embossing powder.  I use an oval shape die, to cut out the shape on two sides of the box.   I then adhered the acetate stamped image in the inside of the box, lining up the design. 
Colored the outside line with a purple marker, just to give it color. 
Purple seemed to be my choice of color for this entire release!!  :) I added small purple pearls to the bottom corners and box cover.  I also used the digital elements that come in the Digital Vintage paper collection. 
I cut out extra butterflies and layered it, to give it a little dimension
This is my completed project ready for delivery!!
I even included my favorite bulbs, which happen to be included in this stamp set; Crocus!!
As you can see they are ready to be planted!! I'll have to take a picture for you in the Spring when they are in full bloom!!  They are truly beautiful flowers. 
So there you have it!!  I hope you liked my project today. 
Here is today's line up and you will not want to miss a stop.
