Gift Set




Something a bit different from me today.  I have made a little gift set for my sister's birthday comprising of a Tea Light Candle card and a Tote of bathing goodies so that she cam pamper herself.  This is the first time I have made either of these and I'm quite pleased at how they have turned out.  I shall certainly be making a few more I think as they were so easy.

Card

I found the template/tutorial on Lena Katrine's blog.  As you can see, each of the panels have been matted & layered using the offcuts from the Tote.  I then added an embossed strip of roses to all the panels.  The folder being another magazine freebie.  To the front panel I added a magnolia image which I coloured with promarkers and fussy cut before attaching with foam pads. I finished this panel with some red roses.  A bit of ribbon to hold the tea lights in finishes off the card.

Tote

First off I printed some card with a couple of Nitwits papers (printing both sides of the base paper.  I then overprinted the templates from My Life Made Easy, which I won a couple of years ago.  Once this was done I cut all the pieces out, layered the panels with the contrast card and assembled it.  There are a couple of large eyelets at each end of the handle purely for decoration.  To the front I added a die cut tree and bench and then sat another Magnolia image (coloured with promarkers) onto the bench.  A few red roses and a charm attached with a brad completes the front panel.  Last but not least, a lovely ribbon tied around the handle finishes the Tote.
