Thanksgiving Favor: Apothecary Art & Woodgrain Embossing Folder

I've had so much feedback on the handmade Thanksgiving card made with Apothecary Art and the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, that I just had to make a matching favor.

Handmade Thanksgiving Favor from Stamping Madly, made with Apothecary Art and Woodgrain Embossing Folder

I love the flowers in fall colors, so wanted to use the same stamp.  But the coordinating Labels Framelit is too big to fit on the box without hanging over the edges.  So I thought, "Why not just cut it with the next smaller Framelit?"  I was surprised by the thought, but you know me, I'm always willing to experiment.  So do you think it worked?

The box is made with my favorite Big Shot Die, Fancy Favor.  If you haven't tried it yet, you might want to order it–it just might become your favorite, too! 

You'll love how easy it is to create beautiful gift boxes and treat holders with this die.  You can decorate it in an endless variety of styles.  I've recently shown you the Christmas Blessings Box, and have made two more Chrsitmas versions you'll see before long.  You may also like the Twitterpated Blossoms Box that was a Mad Stampers Club project back in April.

This is a Bigz Die which means that it requires the Extended Cutting Pads.  Because it has both score lines and cutting lines, it works best with the Extended Crease Pad in place of the top Cutting Pad, otherwise you won't get good score lines, and if you add shims to try to get the make the score lines work, some of them are likely to be cut instead of just scored

Be sure you have both of these extra long Pads because the Standard Cutting and Crease Pads won't work with the extra long die. 

If you like coloring images, then the Apothecary Art stamp set is perfect for you.  Use Stampin' Write Markers either alone or with a Blender Pen, (I used Markers both ways on this project) or Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aqua Painter.  You'll be able to match all the Stampin' Up! colors with either choice. 

Don't forget the Labels Framelits to go with the Apothecary Art set:
