Heart box

So here is my project.  I created a heart shaped box and used the Love Banners digital stamp set and die cut the fancy heart shapes.
After I assembled the heart box I rubbed the edges with metallic chalk, then added dots of White Opal Liquid Pearls around the edges. I cut the fancy heart shape out of white card stock and covered it with Delta Ceramcoat Pearl paint. I cut a matted image of the same shape from red card stock.  I mounted them onto the heart box using foam adhesive between the layers.  I then printed the Love Banner onto a (regular) transparency, added copper embossing powder and heat set it.  (I should have used an embossing buddy or dryer sheet to remove the static first.)  I cut out the transparency and lined just the banner with white paper and layered it over the Leaf Heart.
I then layered a Prima blossom with branches punched from brown card stock using the Martha Stewart Twig Punch, red stamens (cake decorating department), green rose leaves using the Martha Stewart punch, and a deep red bow and adhered it on the leaf heart just under the banner.  Lastly I added some KaiserCraft clear jewels to the leaf heart.

My DH was telling me how great it turned out and how much depth there was to the project (wow, I was surprised) and proceeded to tell me "I hope you didn't create it for me" lol  It's just a little too fru-fru for him.
