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.
