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.
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.
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.
