Gift Box and Winter Friendship Card
Hi, it's Diane today with a couple of quick projects. Most of you are probably busy getting ready for the Thanksgiving festivities - I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
If you want to make a gift package a bit more special, try adding some Creative Charms. I wrapped wide green grosgrain ribbon around a small silver gift box, added a piece of black Vintage Velvet Ric Rac along the longer ribbon and popped on a couple of red Vintage poppies for an elegant presentation.
I changed the pearl brads that come in the vintage poppies with a red Vintage Jewel Brad and a round green Vintage Jewel for a different look.
We had snow in Massachusetts before Halloween but there hasn't been any more snow yet. This card can be sent to a friend anytime during the winter.
I added a snowflake from the Winter Medley to the sentiment stamped inside the card.
An iridescent snowflake from the Winter Medley and a snowflake from the Winter Seasonal Sparkles accent the cut out design in the front of the card.
The word "snow" from the Winter Seasonal Sparkles is easy to add to the front of the card. The tiny gems are embedded in adhesive and you can gently lift the entire word and place it on the card.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving - I hope you can spend it with your loved ones. If you want to see more detailed directions for these projects, you can check my blog, Capadia Designs (the posts will appear after the Thanksgiving holidays).
