Good morning! Today I have a quick and easy Christmas project for a last minute gift idea. It seems like around the holidays we are always in need of those gifts when you just need a little something to give to someone.I created a shape card and embellished a pretty Christmas container. This is very quick and easy to do and it adds a homemade touch to the gift. To create the shape card I used the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™ and LF-124 Grand Scalloped Circles die #1. Shape cards are very easy to make with Spellbinders™ die templates. If you have never made a shape card you simply place the die template just slightly off the fold line on your card and tape to hold in place and then cut/emboss as usual. I also used S4-115 Petite Scalloped Circles Large die #3 for the base on the top of the container and S4-292 Beaded Circles dies #3, #4 with Core'dintaions deep red cardstock. For the images I used S4-301 Labels Sixteen dies #2, #4 with Simply Smooth Ivory Card Stock from DCS.Here is a photo of the diecuts after the images have been stamped and the edges inked. I used JB-09775 From Our House stamp set from JustRite Stampers. The JB-09775 From Our House stamp set includes 6 Designer Centers and 6 Designer Borders and fits JB-09508 Clear 2'' Square Stamper.I used Copic markers to color the image of the tree and the postage stamp border. I also used Copic markers to color the holly and berries on the larger stamped border on the card.Here is a close up of the images.I used White 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L™ to pop up some of the layers and I added an ivory bow to the top of the card.For the container I just embellished the top with layers of diecuts and the Christmas tree image from JB-09775 From Our House. The container was pretty just the way it was but this just dresses it up a little more and gives it a handmade feel.Fill the container up with some Christmas goodies--homemade or from the store.
