Creative Circle November Blog Hop and FREE pattern!

Creative Circle Blog Hop Resized

Can you believe it’s November and the holidays are just around the corner?  This sweet little box is perfect to help you with your holiday gift giving.  And the best part – it’s free!  Hop along with us and see lots of great ideas for this pattern.

This is the box filled with cards.  It’s a substantial size and I was able to get 10 2 layer cards and envelopes inside!  I used Cherry Cobbler card stock and the Season of Cheer Designer Series paper for the box and the Merry Everything for the tag.  I die cut the top with the Perfect Pines Framelit Dies and added a piece of window sheet to the opening.

Here’s the set –

But it’s not only great for cards – it’s great for gifts too.  I filled mine with chocolate.  Wouldn’t this make a cute gift for a teacher, hair dresser, babysitter, neighbor – anyone you want to remember during the holidays?

Peaceful Pines Gift Card Holder

Peaceful Pines 02

Silver and White – such a pretty color combination for a Christmas card, but SO hard to photograph!  This Gift Card Holder is made with Karen Burniston’s Gift Card Holder die and Stampin Up’s Peaceful Pine stamp set.  The trees are stamped in Versamark and silver embossing powder.  The dotted stamp is the medium tree, but I used the small tree die to cut them out.  The little packages are embossed in silver and the ribbon in colored with a Real Red Stampin Write Marker.  The star on top is Red Glimmer paper.  The sentiment is from Versatile Christmas and is also embossed in silver.

The Gift Card Holder was cut out of Heavy White card stock and then again in Silver Foil with the center trimmed away.  The frame was cut in Whisper White.

On the  inside I reversed the order and cut the frame and a solid from Silver Foil.  It’s so shiny!  And that’s one of the best parts of the holidays 🙂  Hugs, Fran
