The Happy Stampers group is back with another blog hop! Today, we have created projects with a holiday theme. This may be your first stop on the blog hop, or you may have linked to me from Amy Koender’s website. Either way, I hope you enjoy the projects I have in store for you today. My projects today feature the Under the Tree Specialty DSP and the Festival of Trees stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. I just love how these turned out!
For my birthday, my sister gave me a massage gift certificate, and I ended up winning a candle in a drawing from the spa. I decided to create a custom box for the candle, using my gift box punch board and the fantastic Under the Tree Specialty DSP!
The box fits the candle perfectly! I jazzed up the adorable package by creating a belly band and adorning it with a tag created using the Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating Tree Punch. I stamped my tree on whisper white card stock and then sandwiched it between two circles of craft card stock. Add a star, and some other embellishments and presto… you have a super cute package that anyone would love to receive.
For my card, I used the same elements to create a coordinated look. I used the stars textured embossing folder on the card base, to add some extra dimension to the front of the card. I like how it mirrors the star on top of the tree and adds extra texture to the design. I also looped a little linen thread behind the tag to provide another interesting element. I like how it all came together.
I finished off the inside of my card, by adding a strip of the Under the Tree Specialty DSP to the inside of the card. I am really pleased with how these projects turned out!
