The Day Before.....



Merry Christmas Eve everyone! The big day is almost here and I'm getting excited now! Here's my card for the OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch challenge #152. I used a Hero Arts set, stamping the flower image and layering it with dimensionals in turquoise and white. I added some Copic colors to the petal edges and a silver Candi Dot to the center. The die-cut flourishes were a gift from my friend Mary Anne, and the embossed panels were done with a CB Decorative tiles ef. I also added some Copic color inside the letters of the sentiment. Click the photo to enlarge and see that detail.


Here's a nugget box and tag I made with Pacific Point cardstock. I was so pleased with the way this card turned out, I decided to make a tag and some matching treat boxes. The nugget box holds 3 Hershey nugget candies.


Here is the nugget box opened up. I stamped the address labels with a PTI stamp set, and wrapped them around the candies to match. The Hershey kisses trees in the background were CASED from Brenda Quintana's tutorial here. I made quite a few of these to give as gifts and hand-outs for those who come to visit during the holidays.

I hope your Christmas is merry and your holidays are all you hope for. Thank you for taking a few minutes from your busy day to stop in and say hello!
