ISC Hop...A Tote and a Card

Welcome Back, I hope you enjoyed the ISC DT Blog Hop yesterday. Betsy had created an A2 sized Tote pattern for the designers to use along with the July Releases. I went for more of a Clean and Simple, Classy Black & White look.

For my box and card, I used a morphed version of the Heavenly Holes Technique, as I omitted the colored card stock, and used White. If you enlarge the photo, you'll be able to see where I used my Anywhere Hole punch to add holes to the Flourishing Ivy. The Australian Daisy is stamped in Black Archival, cut out and popped on dimensionals. The Black diagonal panel was run through the Big Shot using the CuttleBug Swiss Dots Folder. The gems are from Kaiser. To keep my box secure, I used Magnets from Basic Grey.
