Hi all, I made this Christmas Cracker Exploding gift box recently after seeing Katherine demo it on Create and Craft I thought that I would have ago and here is my finished project.
For my base card I used a satin gold mirri card I punched the top with an EK Success border punch, for my layers on each of the sides I used some burgundy card stock topped with Bazzill Shimmer card stock that I embossed with my snowflake embossing folder, on two sides I added some Cosmic Shimmer Red Berry PVA glue for the pearls then added my die cut burgundy Poinsettia's, on the other two sides I used my beloved Tilda dressed as a Christmas Angel I stamped the image then coloured with copics and cut her out I added Pinflair Ice diamond to her wings, I made a tag with some of the left over embossed card and added a Tonic die cut sentiment I tied the tag with both twine and burgundy polka dot ribbon.
I took several photos so you could see the box from different angles.

I placed a votive candle on the inside as the gift, my mum loved it so much that she asked if she could have it to give to one of her church friends, of course I was more than happy that she thought it good enough to give to her special pal. I used Poinsettia paper for the inside. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
I really would like to thank everyone for visiting and leaving me such lovely comments on my work I appreciate it so much.

Hi all, I am still getting used to my computer and have already noticed that there have been so many changes I don't know whether it is because I now have Windows 8 or not.  I cannot print anything as I cannot find the original disc for my printer I know I have put it somewhere safe but I have had it for a few years so it could be anywhere.
I have managed to catch up with commenting and visiting most of my favourite blogs I have been so inspired by you all.
I have managed to complete a Christmas card using the colours red and white.  The main image is a stamp that I bought from Stamps By Chloe a little while ago, I have heat embossed it using WOW Gold Embossing powder also some of Debbie Moore's gold glitter, I then added some Red Pearl glue to the centre of the snowflakes and star-bursts.
The white card is Centura Pearl I used my 8x8 snowflake embossing folder the image shows up lovely in this picture.  I used my EK Success circle cutter for the central mount and Marianne dies for the Poinsettia and leaves, the sentiment is from the Tonic Christmas Cracker die it comes with 3 die cut sentiments this is one of them.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I thought that you might like to see one of the latest pictures that I took of my mum and Jess they love each other so much and Jess brings my mum so much joy, she laughs quite a lot when she is with Jess and me. 

Well that is it from me for today, I hope to continue my visits to you all very soon until then take care.
