Today I have a little Christmas gift set to share with you and enter into some challenges.
I made a card and gift box for my son's girlfriend, I ordered her a gift but it did not come boxed so I thought it would be a good idea to make one.
For my card I have used one of my many LOTV stamps I used Momento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Graph It Markers, I used Bronze coloured stickles for the fur bits on the hat.  I used one of my Spellbinder dies for the frame and LOTV paper.
For the box I used black card stock for the base and wrap and gold mirri card for the top.
I did all the measuring of the box with my Hougie board, I cut a separate piece of gold mirri card to emboss for the top, I decided to make a wrap for the box in black cardstock, I used a circle scalloped punch and a circle Spellbinders die to join the ends and for a base to place the gold coloured Poinsettia and some leaves, I also added some little tags punched with my Fiskars tag punch.
The pictures below show different angles and looks of both card and box

I would like to enter my Christmas Gift Set into the following challenges.
Many thanks for visiting my blog I hope that you like my gift set please feel free to come back soon.
I would also like to thank everyone for the lovely comments that I have received on my previous post they are all so much appreciated.
