Good morning blog friends. Today I’m blogging here and on the Waltzingmouse Inspiration Blog with a little project for you that will keep you in the good graces for those last minute gift swaps. Sometime after I’ve mailed Christmas cards I like to make a couple of little ones – 3-1/2” square or a little bit larger – and I keep them by the door so that when someone comes to the door with an unexpected gift, I have something on the ready to drop into a goodie bag that I have for just that occasion. I just knew that A Cottage Christmas would be the perfect embellishment for my little card box. I took a piece of corrugated paper and created a box bottom 2” high and used clear acetate to create a top 4” high. The cottage is colored with Copic markers and glittered up for a snowy roof look.
Inside I tucked four little 3-1/2” cards made using the Pinstripe Backgrounder and had plenty of sentiments to go around from these Waltzingmouse Stamp Sets – Alpine Christmas and Compliments of the Season.
I even made little envelopes to accommodate the cards using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. Each card is cut using Spellbinders Classic Squares LG, Spellbinders Classic Squares SM and embellished using Spellbinders Holly Leaves and Twigs – easy as pie! Whew! Now I’m ready for that spur of the moment gift…
