Making Cards & Gifts Class

At this month's class I decided to use the same stamps and colours so that both projects could be given as a gift together.

Our first make and take was this gorgeous mini treat holder, designed by the very talented Jenny Moors.  It has been designed to hold After Eight Mints but my friend Louise suggested using those "posh" teabags that have the tag and string, will have to try them out for size.

We used the "Kissing Technique" with the "Flower Accent" and "Fine Flourish" stamps in Rose Red and Pretty in Pink inks.  The Boho Blossom Punch helped us to create a lovely centre for our flower to which we added a 1/4" circle covered with Crystal Effects, so pretty.  The Two-Step Bird Punch was used for the leaves.

Well I am sure you all know this, but these are my all time favourite colours, glad they are staying with us.  Looking forward to all those lovely new colours that will be coming in October so maybe I will get attached to some other colour combo!!

Call by tomorrow to see the co-ordinating card we made to go with this gift.
