PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE & PASSIONATELY ARTISTIC


Wednesday means a new challenge over at The Pixie Cottage. Our theme is Last Minute Gifts & Cards and as always you can chose to use the sketch.
Also wanted to say a big thanks to all of your for your thoughts and prayers! Excited to say mom finally got to come home last night. She has a long road to recovery but at least she is home.

This gift set is for my nephew. I started with a recycled cracker can which I covered in red paper. The Three Gingerbread Men image by Tina Akonom is found at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. I stamped the image twice, water colored and added the white "frosting" trim then cut one of the image into two pieces.
Part of the image was attached to the label cut from the Spellbinder label #20 folded over the bag of candy.
The other whole gingerbread man was added to the tag and attached to the jar full of cocoa mix and marshmallows. After stitching a couple dps together I added the other image to the layers and attached to the can. The top was covered with couple layers cut with the Spellbinder scalloped circle. Then sentiment was cut out with the Spellbinder scalloped oval. Some red ribbons to add a little festive note and viola.

Now this is to show that snowflakes come in more that just white LOL. A simple little card with a little wreath made by punching lots of snowflakes in several colors of green. Some of them are glittered. After I assembled the wreath a little red bow was added and all was added to the layer of gold paper then again onto the white. A little Merry Christmas sentiment stamped and cut out with a Spellbinder flower die. This is a fun way to quickly decorate a card.
