Hands up, how likes an abnormal shaped box? Or something that is a little different to the norm? Well, today’s project is certainly along those lines. Now I’m not the first person to make a box like this, and I’ve seen far too many to credit a single person. So I thought I’d try my own version – these are quite a large size, and will fit a good quantity of treats.
I haven’t used the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP) in a while and it is such beautiful paper, that I reached out for it again. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and so is the matching ribbon. The picture below shows the iridescent sheen to the ribbon, which makes it sparkle against any project.
I finish my project off with a tag made from Balmy Blue glimmer paper and a Whisper White stitched circle. The stamp is from the cute Snowman Season stamp set and finished the label well.
Which pattern do you prefer – the watercolour ombre one or the snowflakes?
Last week, I took part in a team event with other demos in the wider team that I am part of. The event was based around the Curvy Variety bundle and this was one of the make and take projects that formed part of the event – it’s so pretty!
The leaves are coloured using a technique taught by Pootles, blending the inky outline in an almost watercolour effect, with a glittery sparkle finish. It’s beautiful. Mine is made with Shaded Spruce, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede – which I think look gorgeous together. I’m not sure what colouring I’ve tried to mimic on the birds though..
The little birds on this card are so bloody cute! I sometimes wonder what they’re twittering to one another, just like when you hear birds outside your window.
We all love a quick project, one where we can put together a quick card in a few minutes when time is short. Or when a last minute request is sprung upon us.. Memories and more make the perfect cards with very little supplies or time needed. Combine this with the Memories and More cards and envelopes and you have a winning combination.
Within the pack you get a variety of card fronts with the most GORGEOUS characters, there’s very little thought involved as the pack does the work for you and with the amount of supplies you receive, you will have a stack of Christmas cards completed in no time!
I really hope you enjoy this set as much as my daughter and I have.
