A Christmas project!

Well, I am definnitely starting to get that Christmassey feeling what with the upcoming Papertrey Ink release (swoon) and the general change in the weather around here.  I have realised that I better get my skates on if I’m going to get all the cards made for Christmas that I need to!  As a start here is a little card and gift box set I made a few weeks ago for the Passion For Papertrey blog – totally forgot to share it at the time – oops!

I used a Sizzix Bigz XL die for the box and made my focal point for the card out of the little pop-out from the front/  I used Peaceful Poinsettias stamp set and Pure Poppy cardstock and ink.  The image on the box is stamped in Versamark and then embossed in white. 

Ok, better get organised – got a busy day ahead!

Have a great weekend everyone.

  4. What an elegant creation! I love how you’ve used the cut-out, it ties the set together so well! Beautiful!
