Challenge 12 at Crafting with Dragonflies.


Good Morning Bloggers


How the last fortnight has flown by.
Admittedly I was away for the best part of it so that is why I think it flew past me.
So today we head on to CHALLENGE #12.
For this fortnight we have another challenge for you and this time it is to make a
Gift Box/Holder and add at least 3 cards.
I saw this tutorial HERE after Kelli showed the Design Team.
 I saved it for future reference and it wasn't till Kelli posted her photos
that I realized it was the one I had kept for a rainy day
(didn't rain while I was making it lol)
I pretty well kept to the same theme as the tutorial because
the digi I had picked from our generous sponsor
was perfect for a CHRISTMAS GIFT.
I love using this flower at Christmas time
 but also any time during the year as it doesn't have to be red.
Here is what I made.
Pretty simple really.
 I used green scrapbook paper for my folder.
Red card stock as a backing for my Christmas Designer Paper
and cut the bottom edge with a MS Punch.
Added a few embellishments and tied a Christmas ribbon to the top.
Finished with a Christmas Peg.

The inside I added 2 embellishments.

This is a close up view of the Poinsettia on my cards.

My Folder & Hand Made cards
that fit in the slots at either end.

A close up view of one of my cards.
The snowflakes were heat embossed with glittered embossing powder
and sentiments are from various stamp sets.
I popped the poinsettia flowers on the cards for dimension.
It was nice to get an early start on some Christmas projects
 thanks to our Leader HILDE.
We will have a few more Christmas type challenges a little later in the year.
Thanks again for stopping by to see my latest Dragonfly Creation
and hope to see yours over there soon.

I just love the embossed snowflakes. You just can't have a Christmas card without some sparkle. And I agree completely about poinsettia's, great image for you cards.
