Here is the Christmas Card i did for the Swap. Now this isnt your tradition christmas colours, this is something a little different to add a bit of colour and change to Christmas
Stamps: Heard from the Heart, Snow Swirled, Priceless
Cardstock: Whisper White, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo
Ink: Perfect Plum, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Pretty in Pink 1/4″ Grosgain Ribbon, Glue Dots, Sponge, Perfect plum Marker
The technique for this was masking, I cut out a circle from some scrap paper, places the piece of paper with the cut out in the middle of the page and sponge on a light colour to get the bauble effect. Then i stamped the snow flakes on and took the piece of paper away.. leaving this effect
With Christmas plans coming together and presents being wrapping. I might add some wow under the christmas tree this year.
Each year we normalled get a chocolate stock from a few members of the family and as much as i love them i wanted to give something a little different.
So i went looking for a box of sorts that i could make and put some little items in.
I found this treats box that is perfect for what i want. For the girls i am going to put some sample of the new summer mini embellishments into it, and for the boys im not too sure about them yet.. i might do something different.
I used some of my left over full sheet chipboard to make it nice and strong.
You could change the colours and do this up for children with little goodies. If this was too small you could change the size and make it bigger depending on the purpose. I am sure that you will see me make this more then once when different things come up.
If you are interesting in this item keep your eyes open for my bags and boxes mail order Kit coming in Jan 2010.
Well i best be off i still have things to do
