At our Julie's Jems training session this week we were all about the dreaded C'word .... Christmas! It's only five months away, and considering I try to make all my gifts I really should start thinking about it now!
At least we got a couple of cards and a gift box done, so I can say I have started my preparations!
Here's one of the cards we made. In fact, they were both the same design but the other one didn't have the ribbon and Rhinestones.
We used the Ornament Punch to make the baubles from the Jolly Holiday DSP, stuck them down and stamped the sentiment before running it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
Hopefully you can see the quilted effect here.
We also made a gift box using the Pillow Box Dies. The two boxes were just slotted into each other (one was also embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder) and this time we used a strip of the DSP to decorate and a bauble from the COntempo Christmas stamp set.
I might keep things simple this year and just make the same card and gift for everyone and mass produce these designs!
