It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC96)! This week Silke Ledlow is our challenge host! Silke is challenging us to 3D Holiday Gifts! A card can be made to go along with your gift, but a 3D Christmas gift item is the main challenge! We look forward to seeing what you create!

For the gift challenge, I chose to go with a couple of stacking gift boxes.  I really think it is easier and less costly to create a few of these than it is to buy them.  I can add homemade assorted cookies, candies, notecards, or an actual gift of some sort.  They are fun and easy to do.  I really think the final results is very dramatic and a wonderful finished look!  For my project, I used Flourishes Damask background, Fanciful Flourishes, Holiday Greetings(sentiment), and Fancy Labels(coordinates with Spellbinder die cuts).  I stamped the images onto the cardstock(dp by ME) and assembled the box bottom and top.  I added black satin ribbon and bow. I stamped the label shape, sentiment, then die cut it. I finished with some gold wired curly ques and one gold pearl on my tag. 

This card is also for SCS 300th Color Combo Challenge!  It is a Celebration of Color! Check out the link and play along with us!



I am including this gift set with a few blog challenges! Mostly Christmas and gift ones.
