Winter Wonderland - #7 'Christmas Present'

This week's challenge is being sponsored by the Regina Easter of The Cutting Cafe. The winner will be drawn at random from all our entries this week. They will be able to pick 3 kits of their own choice from The Cutting Cafe online store.

The Cutting Cafe offer a wonderful selection of downloadable stamps and templates .... at really fabulous prices! The galleries on the site are also amazing and offer endless inspiration!

I used the STATIONERY BOX kit to make my first item this week. This is a little 'Christmas Present' of a box of Thank You cards.

The templates are straight forward to use and are very versatile. This kit comes with several different options for the lid. I used the 'frame' template and cut the design from the lid of my box. I then also used the same template for creating mats for my cards. The vellum envelopes were made using another template in the kit.

Cardstock ........ Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa
Ink .............. Versamark
Stamp Set ........ Bella's Blooms, Thank You Kindly (sentiment)
Ribbon ........... Organza From Stash
Other Products ... Gold Embossing Powder

My second creation is a card based on this week's theme .... but I have interpreted it to mean 'Christmas Today' .. rather than 'Christmas Gift' ... and I have created a card using very modern Christmas colours :o)

Most of the products used are from Stampin' UP!

Cardstock ........ Whisper White and Rose Red
Pattern Paper .... Daisy Bucket Designs 'Wrapped Wishes' Series
Ink .............. Rose Red
Stamp Set ........ Season Of Joy stamp set
Ribbon ........... Organza From Stash
Punches .......... Scallop Oval, Large Oval

Don't forget to visit all the other DT's fab creations this week!
