Special Season

Hello there,

Are you glad is the weekend? Today I share with you the fourth project from the PapeRie, a lovely box of Christmas Cards using the fabby Special Season stamp set.

The box and card bases were cut from the yummy Composition Paper, it bugs me that we call this paper as it is quite clearly card :) sturdy enough for boxes and card bases LOL

Anyway whatever you call it it, it’s just gorgeous and we paired here with the White Naturals Cardstock for a rustic feel.

Here’s the box and the unusual folded lid.

All those layers unwrap themselves one by one to finally reveal the inside.

We used the season of Style designer papers along side that fab cherry cobbler stitched grosgrain ribbon.

The cards are very simple but really effective, the tree from this set it’s gorgeous and doesn’t need much else. We stamped it in Old Olive ink and added some gorgeous grunge distressed dots in gold ink.

Hope you like them and it gives you some ideas for your cards. I am pretty sure these will feature on my list of cards I send out this year.

Hugs xx
