Box for my cards.....with Amy

Happy June everybody,

It's Amy here with you today and I would like to share a altered box, 3 cards and a layout.
Gloria Stengel is a wonderful scrapper and I saw her make one box a while back to put her cards in.
I thought "well" that's a wonderful idea I'm going to make one too.
I find myself always in need off cards but now with this box I can create cards and then put them away for a special occasion.
For this special project I used a chipboard piece I had for a long time and never thought I would use it because it's so large.

Card Box:

I painted the frame with gesso and then colored it with slightly off white paint, and in the middle with colorbox moss green paint! After that for the middle part I used crackle accents and for the outside part clear embossing powder.

   Now for my layout I totally went a whole other direction it's so not my style but I had a blast creating.
I used tons off Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and embossing powders and off course the amazing ID chipboard.
