Kiwi Lane & Authentique Spirited Collection

Good morning!  Alicia here for Kiwi Lane!  This month I had the most fun working with Authentique Paper!  It is such beautiful paper I don't want to cut it!  But that is best part of working with Kiwi Lane,  you can pick out the "prettiest" parts of the paper to use!  Which I did while making this very fun card in a box.  You can find many instructional videos on youtube to make this card or check back to my post from the first time I made one for more specifics.

I will admit that this box does not fit in an A2 envelope, but I intend to use it as a piece of home decor.  I used the Halloween templates for the ghost (1) and the large pumpkin (3).  I added doodles and "stitching" to all the cuts.

See how I cut the owl's wings from the lacy side of the wood paper?  I love how she turned out!  I used a Stampin' Up Raven lace for the eyelashes which I thought went perfect with the "lacy" wings and pumpkin.  I used Autumn 5 template for the owl.  I also used it to make the "wings" by tracing the outside, placing the point on the other side of the template and tracing the other "side".  I hope that makes sense.  Then I popped them up on pop dots.

On each side of the box I used a different shape,on this side I used Tiny holiday 2T for the leaf.

On the pumpkins, I did the same thing as the owl wings...I traced just part of the template to make a stem out to the wood grain paper. I also hung a cute brass charm from this pumpkin!  I used Tiny holiday 4T for the small pumpkin.

For the acorn,  I used the new Autumn 2 template with the Authentique paper that looks like wood (again) with doodles.

I added a little Delight! (4) to the bottom of the base of the box to dress it up a bit more.

I also added some Authentique Spirited stickers to the back.  Every thing is edged with Quick Quotes Midnight Confessions.
