It’s a cold and very windy day here so I decided to stay in and get in some quality crafting time. I’m entering today’s card in the Freshly Made Sketches #461 . I changed the orientation of the sketch and it reminded me of a gift box. I went with a Christmas theme for my card.
I choose a sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set. I stamped this in Cherry Cobbler on a piece of Whisper White. Using my Stamparatus I stamped in again with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I felt this made the sentiment really stand out. I punched it out with a 1 1/2 in punch. I then punched a piece of Cherry Cobbler with a 1 3/4 in punch to layer on the back. I punched a small hole on the top which I layered a piece of linen thread. I then stuck the thread behind the bow. To finish off the front I added some red Wonderful Gems.
For the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White. I adhered a 1/2 in strip of gold foil to the bottom.
I used a couple of bows from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. Using a Whisper White envelope I stamped a small bow in Cherry Cobbler ink to the front lower left corner. I then added to the flap a thin strip of Real Red Glitter paper and stamped a large bow centered on the flap and envelope and my card was done.
