StampinUp! Snow Swirled Projects

Today's projects were done using the stamp set Snow Swirled. The images and sentiment are beautiful.


The card was created using Bravo Burgundy, Kraft, Handsome Hunter card stock and Silver Encore ink. Very traditional colors making a very handsome card. I embelished it with a clear rhinestone brad from the Pretties Kit, White Taffeta ribbon, and the Jumbo Snowflake punch underneath a snowflake image I cut out.

The second project is a "tree box". The tree image is stamped on all three sides of the box using the Stamp-a-ma-jig. You could hang this on your tree filled with all sorts of things. It measures 4" high and 3" on each side of the triangle; plenty big to hold a special gift or gift card. The template came from Brenda Quintana.

As I shop on line I'm already seeing "Last Minute Shopping" adds. I'm determined that there's still plenty of time to make some homemade cards and gifts. I hope you are able to take some PCT, Personal Crafting Time, to create something that is uniquely yours to give this Christmas. If you need ideas check out my Wrapping 101 projects to the right.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact. And, please leave your comments I love to hear how you like the project of the day!

God Bless,
