Good morning my lovelies how are you all? A few weeks ago I had a lovely email from Sharon asking me if I would like to be Guest Designer for December & January over at
Papertake Weekly...........well she didnt need ask me twice I am soooooooooo honoured to be guest designer for them wooooooooo hooooooooooo!!
Anyway the new challenge this week is..........
...........the lovely sponsors this week are LOTV.
I have designed & made something new for my step-mum as at christmas time we buy her a few small gifts to open on the day but then give her £100.........well what do you buy a woman who has everything more or less....... At least this way she can buy what she wants & likes ;0)
WARNING PHOTO HEAVY!!!!!!!
I have used 'Christmas Angel' by the uber talented Krista at Saturated Canary, I sooooooooo love this image & of course I added sparkles to her wings & baubles ;0)
This is a card & gift in one............
This is the inside, the gorgeous digi paper is from the lovely Inger Harding, its so pretty as soon as she released it I brought the whole lot, including the side panels & the tag on the front.
I added 2 corner dies, a reindeer, doilies & some lush lace.
These are the 2 panels either side & I'm going to put a keepsake poem in & some photo's. The corners are open so things can be slotted into them & keep them in place.
This is the pocket I made for the centre & here I can put the money.
It is kept closed by a velcro button.
I wanted the pocket to be expandable so I created a file-type pocket so I'm not restricted as much when putting things in.
All the flowers are from WOC, hubster treated me to a big box full last week bless him.
This is the other side of the tag which also came from the same paper digi set. The wooden snowflake I added some paint, glitter & a glitter pearl to the centre, its so sparkly.
I added 2 organza ribbons to keep it closed. The brackets are a Joy Crafts die which is
'Middle Fleur-De-Lys' I lurve these dies!!! All the dies I've also inked with Walnut DI.
