A Christmas gift

Happy Sunday, and happy holidays! Have you finished all your Christmas shopping yet? How about a homemade gift?

I've made a small set of cards for todays post, and It's wrapped up too:) We still have a few days until christmas, so why not create something special for someone you care about?

I used one of my all time favorite Flourishes sets, the Poinsetta and Boxwood for my gift.



I made a simple gift box from cardstock, and created an acetate window, to give the recipient a "sneak peek" at the contents...


I decorated the box with elegant Satin Ribbon and Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendants die cuts.


A close-up of the window. The poinsetta was colored with Le Plume Markers and cut out.


Inside the box.... You`ll find several of the dies used in the Flourishes store.


The set of cards...








...so now I just want to wish all of you a MERRY CHRISTMAS!! And thank you so much to the Flourishes Ladies for having me here in the Limelight, I so enjoyed it! ...And thank you to everyone who has visited me here and at my blog!! I'm wishing you all a happy, creative new year too!
