I know it's early to be making Christmas Projects, but I received my Holiday Catalog pre-order weeks ago and I just couldn't help but play with the Festive Farmhouse Suite along with the Peaceful Noel and Feather & Frost stamp sets! I had an inaugural gathering in my new Craft Studio and I wanted to have a fun project for the ladies to take home.
|The new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used on top of this box. See those wonderful stitches on the banner with the star print from the Festive Farmhouse DSP? That is from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies!|
We made three gift cards and a sweet mini pizza box to keep them in. It could also be a gift that you bring to your host at a dinner party during the holidays, OR you could use the box to put a little something sweet at a table place setting. The possibilities are endless!
This sweet checked card shows off the color scheme I chose from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, the 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim and the Merry Little Christmas sentiment from the Peaceful Noel stamp set. The Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine will help tie this card onto a package.
Next I used the leaves and berries stamp from the Feathers & Frost stamp set, stamping them onto Whisper White card stock using VersaMark and Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. I colored in the leaves using So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker and the berries with a Cherry Cobbler SW Marker. JOY is from the same stamp set and it's embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The ribbon being the sentiment is Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon. The chord is retired stretch silver.
Lastly, this sweet bird from Feather & Frost finds a home in the center of a Boxwood Wreath Embellishment. I bought the wreaths over a year ago, but hadn't used on yet! The bird is colored using Dark and Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends and a So Saffron marker. Behind the bird and wreath is a flag that I stamped using the new Buffalo Check background stamp. The chord is retired gold chord.
Thank you for looking today! Let me know if you have any questions on how I made these cards or the box. I'd love to answer them.
