It’s the little things

I have a lot of grown up nieces, God children etc and I always struggle with what to get them for a gift and they generally ask for money which I’m happy with but it would be nice to be able to put that money in something a little more interesting than an envelope so when I spotted this beautiful die in the mini catalogue I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.

This one I kept simple and used a couple of the square vellum doilies and decorated them with gold faceted gems, clear crystal gems and I coloured a few red to add some contrast.

This one is made using an embossing folder to create texture and then I embellished it with some red and gold.

This one is made using the copper foil cardstock and a bit of punching and sticking

This last one is more traditional in red and gold with some embossing powder thrown in for effect.

These little tiny boxes are perfect to slip some money inside and hang from the tree and they can be used year after year.

I hope you are enjoying the teasing items from the new catalogue and I promise I will be back soon with something from the current catalogue.

Until then

Happy stamping
