Gingham Gift set

Hi there, isn't it lovely to get up and realise its Saturday and you don't have to go to work? Even better I can spend the day in my craft room :-) But before I go and get inky, here's a project made with the new  Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque called 'The Gift of Christmas' . It has some beautiful focal images but also the most beautiful snowflakes which I've used on this little gift set.

It was a very quick and easy project, the snowflakes were stamped on to kraft card with versamark and embossed with white EP, I stamped the 'Christmas Cheer' Sentiment in red and then added little dots of red stickles and left it to dry. I matted on some red card, adding gingham ribbon and popped it on a kraft card blank.

I did the same for the tag, this time stamping 'A gift for you' and then recycled some kraft wrapping paper by stamping the snowflake with white stazon and adding some stickles

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Cards and More: Anything goes
Celebrate the Occasion: Christmas in August
Flourishes: Use kraft paper

Thanks for popping by today, have a good weekend

  5. Just lovely with the kraft, red & white - I think this is fast becoming a favourite colour scheme. Love the way it is all co-ordinated & the way the snowflakes come off the edge.
