New Challenge #106 at Glitter N Sparkle

It's that time of week again,
and it's been a good week.
Finally settling down into a routine now
with his working hours.
And this weekend has been lovely 
spending it with his youngest daughter.
Lots of fun, even if swimming 
shattered me the other day lol.

Here is my project for this Week,
I fancied doing a nice little Trinket/Jewelry Box:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Include Some Black + White

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Patties Creations who are offering
2 Images from their store

Ike's Art who are offering
3 Images from their store

The Stamping Chef who are offering
3 Images from their store

My project for this week is:-

Marilyn Digi Stamp 
from Ike's Art
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used the Crafty Drawers Template
(House of Zandra)
for the Drawers I used Matte Black Card
and White Card for everything else

Using Floral Black + White Paper
(Paper Cellar)
I covered the Top and the Blank Sides.
Around the Edges of the Side pieces
I used Boarder Holographic Silver Peel Offs,

For the Drawers,
I used Silver Holographic Card
to make the fronts of them.
Then added an 8mm Silver Brad
to make the handles.

For the Top of my Box
I cut a 26cm x 13cm length of 
Pearlised Black Card
(Ross Papers)
and folded it to make an Easel Fold
(6.5, 6.5, 13).

To decorate the Easel Fold,
on the Bottom I used 
Silver Holographic Card
(because I reminds me of Diamonds sparkling).
On the Folded over Face I used
Silver Mirror Card
And made a pop up Rectangle for the center
from Silver Holographic Card and 
Silver Mirror Card.
Which I rounded off the corners of
using a 5mm Corner Punch

Then using some more Black Pearlised Card
I Die-Cut out the Oval Frame 
- A5 Trim Boarders

Next I printed off the Image on
White DC Paper,
and using the Oval Frame Die again, 
cut it out.

I placed the Black Boarder on the 
Rectangle pop-up, 
and put the cut out Oval Image in the Center.

Using the Black Oval that was left 
I placed it at the front
and Printed off the sentiment
'Diamonds are a girls best friend'
which I then cut out using a smaller Oval Die
(Go Kreate)

To finish off my Card I added
some Silver Stickles
to Marilyn's Earrings,
and 2 x 3mm Diamantes' to the Drops.
For her Fur I used Dazzling Details
(Stamping Up!).
Around the Sentiment I used
5mm Diamantes'.
And finally added 2 White Paper Roses,
and a White + Pearl Satin Flower
(both stash).
