Onto the current challenge - I chose the following photo for your inspiration...The theme for the next two weeks is "Nordic Noel"...and we would like you to use Red, White and Kraft as the main colours and include some Buttons, Ribbon and Twine on your creations.
and here is my take...I created a card with a matching gift box...using lots of goodies available from The Ribbon Reel Shop
I used patterned papers from Pink Paislee's City Sidewalks collection to cover the box using ModPodge, adding SU glitter to the lid. I used some red mesh trim along the centre of the box, adding a snowflake die cut from some white glittered felt, candy cane, a sweet Holly Sprig and some lovely Chamepagne White striped twill.
The sweet little applique style Christmas stocking is from Waltzingmouse's Sewing Box Christmas and is paper pieced using more Pink Paislee Paper. I added some cute pom-pom trim at the top of the boot and tied on some little silver jingle bells.
I used some beautiful white guipure lace and some red and white stripe twill from The Ribbon Reel to cover the outside of the lid and finished the top using natural button twine and a small red and white polka dot buton.
I used lots of the same elements for the coordinating card, leaving off the candy cane due to its weight.
Today I'm also playing along with the challenge from 'Unscripted Sketches #188' which I used for layout of my card.
