Card and Altered Tin

Good Evening

Tonight I decided to enter the Whiff of Joy challenge as my new release Christmas stamps came today whoooo I could not wait to get them inked up. I followed the sketch that was created by Jane and I have to say I will be using this sketch again as it was a delight to work with. The sleigh and the girl are individual stamps both still Whiff of Joy and from the same set.

Also Susie at Sassy Designs has started a new challenge blog and the first challenge is Christmas so I have entered into this one too, go along and see the prize it fantastic and I am keeping my fingers well and truly crossed.




The inside has matching paper and I kept the theme of the tags to match the front of the card.




Included in this set is an altered tin to match, the vanilla chocs were yummy too as I had to finish them because I wanted the tin lol.







Matching mini sketch on the front and on the lid (see told you I loved the sketch) I did just the image of the sleigh for this one, this was a bit fiddly doing every thing in miniature but I got there in the end, the other three sides have matching circle paper like the inside of the card.



Lastly the card and the tin together, I shall be filling the tin with chocolates and giving the set away as a present, I am very pleased with how these turned out.
