A Very Merry Christmas Giveaway!!!


Merry Christmas everyone! If you didn't see my post yesterday WPlus9 is having a HUGE Giveaway this week! Welcome to A Very Merry Christmas Giveaway! Here are the deets!


My picks for the giveaway are Folk Art Flurries and Seasonal Sentiments Die. I made a card and a little pillow box gift for you. 

 I've been on Pinterest a lot lately looking for ideas on how to wrap Christmas presents. Anyway, I found a gift wrapped in this color combination and a similar pattern. So I took that inspiration and made a card and a little gift packaging for today.

I stamped different snowflakes from Folk Art Flurries and heat embossed them to make the background for the card. I used silver, gold and white embossing powders. Then I used distress ink around the edges and around the white embossed snowflakes to make them pop. I used Oatmeal cardstock for this. I have been using a LOT of Oatmeal cardstock these days. I absolutely love it! :)

I die cut a tag and stamped it with Country Charm to make the striped background on it. Then I layered a few die cuts on it. The Simple Snowflake Die on the bottom, then the Clear Cut Stackers: Stars over that, and finally the Seasonal Sentiments Die on top for my main sentiment. I know I'm supposed to pick just one stamp set and 1 die and use them, but I couldn't help myself!!! WPlus9 stamps and dies are so versatile you can combine them to suit your needs! And you know how I love to combine different stamps and dies. :)


I also sprinkled a little glitter on the Hope die cut. Then I added a ribbon, some baker's twine and bells to finish off the tag. 

 For the Kraft Pillow Box, I made another tag to add to it. I made another striped one, this time horizontal. I embossed a snowflake from Folk Art Flurries on the bottom corner. Then I adhered Joy and a snowflake die both from Seasonal Sentiments Die on it. To finish it off , I used Baker's twine to attach the tag onto the pillow box and added the star from Clear Cut Stackers: Star on it. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I used the Natural Wafer Board on the stars so that it would be a little bulkier than just cardstock. 
 
 There you go! Do you want to win all those goodies mentioned above? All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the DT members' blogs! That's 9 chances to win!!! You can comment until December 30, then Dawn will pick ONE lucky winner on the 1st of January! What a great way to end this year and start a new one!!! 

Make sure you head on over to Kerrianne's blog because she has something for you as well. Here's the line up for the rest of the week.
