Passionately Artistic

Passionately Artistic and Want 2 Scrap are coming together for a 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. There will be lots of fabulous creations to give you some Christmas gift ideas and much much more. You will need to visit both blogs, join as a follower and leave a daily comment to be in the drawing for one of the $25.00 prizes.

MY project is Christmas cards and a matching gift box. This is one of the cards~~~ For a change I decided to make big ovals with some non traditional colors. I love this beautiful paper covered in lots of pretty ornaments and vintage colors. I thought it would be fun to pair it with the aqua dots. The edges are distressed and then stickles added for some glitz. The center is cut out with a nestie then framed. Used another nestie to cut out the sentiment and stickled. Some hand dyed seam binding made a small bow. I cut slivers for the pine and made a pine cone for the center. Some snow flakes and a fan fold medallion finish the cards. For my gift box I first covered a box I got from work. I used one of the card ovals and decorated it. I used a punch to make a bias to cover the joints on the box. Made a big bow with some pine and pinecones added. Lots of snowflakes, glitter and buttons finish it off. A close up of the fun pinecones and the gift box to hold the cards.
