Squared UP

Roll on the New Year, I am not sorry to see the back of 2020 and I suspect a lot of you feel the same way. Anyhoo... We have a new challenge at Country View Challenge
which this month is hosted by Corrie, who chose "Use a square" as the theme. 
A square you say... 
I went the whole hog and added power to my square and turned it into a cube, well a box really but with lots of squares!!! 

The ta-da moment:

I created my box base by scoring a 12x12 sheet of black card every 4" horizontally and vertically. I traced some hearts in the corners and cut them out with scissors. 

I also made a lid and before putting them together I stamped and embossed in white EP my badger (Lavinia) and elegant border (Paper Artsy HP) what will be the outside of the box. 

For the inside, I stamped 5 images, all from the same collection by Imagination Crafts (they are called Art stamps and quite old so probably not on sale anymore) .

Over to you now, have a look at what the DT made on the Country View Challenge blog and link up your project to the challenge for the chance to win a £20 voucher for the Country View Craft shop.
