Here’s my final Christmas card for the year using Festive Phrases to wish you a very merry Christmas. I coloured the lights with real red and garden green Stampin’ Write markers and then added a little sparkle with wink of Stella. With a border of real red cut out with the layering squares framelits dies and put on a card dry embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF, you get a classy card nice and quickly – although I’ve had this ready and photographed for about 10 days!

Just popping in to wish you a Happy Christmas Eve – I hope that your preparations are going well. Here’s a quick card if you find yourself short and you need a little inspiration. It uses the Good Tidings stamp set as well as the cute little Christmas tree from the Watercolor Christmas set which coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas project kit.

Here’s the last 3D item that I made for my craft fairs – absolutely adorable Christmas lightbulb treat holders which hold a little candy. They use the now retired curvy keepsake framelits, a little glue and some scoring and you’re done. You could easily put these together in time to dress up your table (as long as you already have the dies that is!)

I found these on Lydia Fiedler’s blog, Understand Blue. Lydia is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who really adores techniques; I encourage you to read her blog. Here’s her video showing how she made these.

Here’s another of the items that I made for the craft fair – a box full of foiled chocolate balls with a label from More Than Chocolate declaring that chocolate makes everything better. Well it does, doesn’t it? It’s an economical box since you can get 2 from a piece of cardstock but it also holds a lot of chocolate – 14 of them. Sam (Pootles) has a video showing her box and how to make it and you can view it here.

I made changes in the closure and the decoration. I added a strip of washi from the Year of Cheer specialty washi which I feel makes the box look really grand. I wrapped a belly band of ribbon around the box – berry burst – and then added a bow attached with glue dots. The sentiment is backed by a silver foil circle from the layering circles dies. I then added dimensionals down the centre of the circle and ensured that they only attached to the ribbon so that the belly band could slide off.
