Suitcase Box

For my FCCB post please scroll down.

Hello and welcome to my second post of the day.
The lovely Carole, over at BBTB2 , is our host this week and has asked us to
create  a Vacation cricut project.

As you are reading this I am on holiday in (hopefully) sunny Cornwall.
Perfect timing for a vacation themed challenge I think!

I love the sizzix scoreboard die that makes a suitcase but don't own it and with having a cricut
I am reluctant to buy it.
Of all the cricut carts I own I couldn't find a suitcase box,so this is where I got creative!!

I used Artiste for the box,which opens at the top of the suitcase and Fabulous Finds
for the handle and luggage tag.
How dinky is that tag?

Obviously I had to add a bit of inking,sanding,embossing and stamping!
Without the inking and sanding I could really speed things up for myself
but hey I wanted it to look worn and well travelled!!

If anyone would like more details on how I made it,I will do a tutorial when I am
back from holiday.

Now check out the inspiration from the amazing ladies over at BBTB2
and come and join in the fun.
