Embossed Rose box

This started out as a plain white die-cut box from Sunday International. I haven't embossed anything in a while so I thought I'd play around with embossing in clear on the white box. Pretty cool... huh?

STAMPS: Dee Gruenig’s Watercolor Valentine POSH#-82
PAPER: Die cut box from SI
INK: Ruby Red and Marvelous Magenta ink pads “StampinUp!”, Versamark ink SI
ACCESSORIES: Offray ribbon, clear embossing power “StampinUP!”, white tissue paper, sponge, paper towel, mini stick-on stones (my stash)

Emboss rose image in clear on front and back of box/ emboss tiny heart image on two sides
Rub Ruby Red ink over entire box covering all edges of box, wipe off excess on the embossed images with a damp paper towel
Attach 3 little stones on top left corner of box front and back, rub edges of box with magenta ink to darken edges a little
Add tissue paper to box, attach ribbon to tie handles together
