Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Sponged & Dry Embossed Lidded Box

Ooooo how pretty are the tops of these 2 boxes?

I wanted to mix up a couple of techniques here on this box, so I went for dry embossing with the gorgeous Petal Burst embossing folder and then a 2 colour ombre look with the sponging.

And I’m a happy girl with the end result!

The box itself is simple to make, but the decoration is aswell!

I hope you have a go at some dry embossing and maybe have a go at sponging too. It’s so easy to do but creates such a gorgeous look!
