Here's one made earlier

Here's the gift box and card I made earlier in the week for a friend - you know who you are :)


This box is bigger than those we made last night at Valentine's workshop, its was made with a whole sheet of 12x12 all folded no cutting - I love the way it turned out, filedl it with colour co-ordinated sweeties, mingles were the closest match the I made a co-ordinating card ...



Stamps: Polka Dot Punches, Happy Everything, Polka Dots & Paisley
Ink: Chocolate Chip and embossing pad
Cardstock: Chocolate chip textured, certainly celery and whisper white
Designer Paper: Certainly Celery and close to cocoa prints designer series paper (ret)
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip and Mellow Moss taffeta
Rub-ons: Cherish Moments

Heart Stamps were clear embossed onto certainly celery and chocolate chip ink sponged over - this technique is called resist embossing - I love it


No crafting this evening, had my nails painted (my other vice) so I'll be blog hopping - if the internet comes back up - if not I'll be a couch potato :)

The fruit bouquet is from a company called passionleaf based in Borehamwood - we use them a lot cause I think it's a lovely alternative to flowers :) Have a great weekend xxx
