Candlelight Christmas

As I'm flying through the house, I wanted to share a few of my recent projects. Because I work away from home (like really away, it takes me two flights to get there) and I'll be working right up until Christmas, I had to get a lot of my gifts and cards done a head of time. I finally busted open my pack of Candlelight Christmas DSP (links to buy all this stuff will be at the bottom of the post) and made up a card and two little gift boxes for two very special girls. Mom and dad got presents too, but I didn't go all out on wrapping them, I'll show the actual gifts after Christmas.

For the card I used the flocked window sheet and one of the patterned papers from the Candlelight Christmas DSP pack, as well as Very Vanilla and Early Espresso card stock. I stamped using the Delightful Dozen stamp set on the card and Merry and Type set on the envelope, both in Cherry Cobbler. I also used Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Crochet Trim and pearls to add a finishing touch. the sentiment on the card is punched with the Decorative Label punch, which is one of my all time favorites.

The boxes (also from Stampin Up, these were on sale the past 10 days and I stocked up) were decorated with more DSP, an ornament I made using the Designer Rosettes Bigz die in the Big Shot, a Naturals button, some Linen Thread and a sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler from the Tiny Tags set and punched out using the Jewelry Tag punch (gotta love when products work together). All tied up with an Old Olive 1/8" taffeta ribbon. Glue dots were also a crucial part of this project...

Last but not least I put together some goodie bags for a workshop this weekend (actually another Christmas Card Buffet). I used more of the Candlelight Christmas DSP to cover a journal (also using pearls, Crochet Trim and the Modern Label punch, my other favorite), a chocolate bar (tied with more of the Old Olive ribbon), a york patty wrapped in a cut out from the Two Tags die, and another rosette ornament. Throw in a small stamp and some adhesive and my goodie bags were set to go!
