Crafty Cardmakers - A Card and Matching Gift xxx

Hello my lovely bloggers
Hope your all good today? Well the snow is here still just a wee bit but totally frozen! Nearly ended on my butt walking the dog its that slippery!

This week over on Crafty Cardmakers we want you not only to make a wee card but a matching gift too! Sounds hard but really easy! It could be a wee box just covered in the matching papers or go way out and make a matching candle!

I looked all over the Internet and came across this fab wee gift set, a Stationary Box! The perfect gift for Christmas I thought hee!

Ingredients :
12x12 card stock (think used 3 in the end)
Papers - Prima
Card for the card blanks and not cards
everything else from stash!

I really enjoyed making this, even tho it was a wee bit fiddly to begin with! The cards are all made with the papers and bits from my stash and of course my grannies buttons hee!
I hope you will join us this week and make something that little bit different! And with Christmas coming up what a great excuse hee! Check out the fab Dt's creations for some ace inspiration!
Thanks for popping by
Hugs and Kisses
