Festive Spirits

This month my design team kit from Simply Create is made up of My Minds Eye 'Holly Jolly' papers, the stamp set to match, lace, buttons and a little box to alter.

So I set to work on the box first and here is the result.

Firstly I gave the whole box a wash of red water colour then covered it with the dotty paper. I stamped the two snowflakes and the two baubles and heat embossed them with clear powder and cut out. Then I inked round all the edges with tattered rose distress ink.

The little menu cards are computer printed, layered on to the dotty paper, stamped with the Noel from the set and inked with the tattered rose.

Now, what am I going to do with the rest of my kit?
