Christmas Gifts Part II

As promised...here is one Christmas gift I am really excited about! I love the idea of giving personalized stationary for gifts. Lucky for me Papertrey Ink. just came out with this monogram set that I ADORE. This has made my Christmas a bit easier.

Here is one gift I created using Papertrey Ink Ambassador Monogram set, Monogram Borders and Corners set and Spiral Bouquet--I just think they all work so beautifully together. (I have another monogram card using these sets but in black and white--a few posts back!)

The circle border was stamped on white cardstock and then I stamped the monogram. I used my SU! circle punch to punch it out and then punch a larger circle in caramel. I used the circle scallop punch for the final border. The background caramel is embossed with the flowers in Spiral Bouquet. I rounded the corners and added the ribbon and brads.

Now, the fun part. I wanted to create a pretty presentation for this gift so I used a clear box I purchased from Clear Boxes.com and I created a beaded handle (that matches the caramel in the card). Using my cropadile, I attached the handle through the top of the box. I added the cute little tag to let the recipient know that these were handmade.


Hope you like it! It was very easy and I think it makes a very special gift.

Thanks for stopping by!
