First off I wanted to say thanks to all of you that left such nice comments on my last post about the vintage ornament gift card holder. I was especially happy to hear I am not the only one that is a perfectionist when it comes to making things.
Today I am sharing another Hanukkah Gift with you.
When I saw the My Timeless Template Perfect Match Box I thought it would be perfect to hold Hanukkah Candles. You could also use it to hold gelt or other small gifts as well. After I printed and cutout the template using PTI Stampers Select White Cardstock I stamped the polka dots from the Polka Dots Basic II stamp set on it with Enchanted Evening Perfect Match Ink and put the outter part of the box together. When I was done with that I ran a strip of Stampers Select White Cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the tiny dots embossing folder and wrapped it around the middle of the box creating a band. Next I stamped the Menorah image from the Mazel Tov set and embossed it with silver embossing powder, then I colored in the candles with my Copics. After that I cut the image out with an Oval Nestabilities die and matted it on a scalloped oval that I cut out from some Enchanted Evening cardstock.
I used Enchanted Evening Cardstock to create the inside box.
To finish it off I tied a piece of Silver Sheer Metallic Edge ribbon around the box and tied it in a bow.
Tomorrow night is the Papertrey November new release. I am super excited about Laurens new Homeade Template and cordinating stamp set. She was having a give away for the template on her blog this week and picked the number 7 in honor of her sons birthday. I was 1 person away from winning it and was super bummed. At least I only have another day to wait before I can buy it. I still have to wait fot the stamps to arrive but can at least start creating the houses in the meantime though.
I also wanted to let you all know that this weekend the Etsygreetings team I am a member of is having a SALE on holiday greeting cards from 40+ indie artists myself included you can check that out here. Also the EtsyChai team that I am also a member of will be having a Miracles of Hanukkah Contest & Sale from 11/15 thru 11/22. there are more detail about that here for how to play and win. That's it for now we are suppose to get another winter storm this weekend but I really hope it misses us this time. I am planning on making this months technique video tomorrow though and hope to be back to share that with you on Tuesday. Until then I hope you have a great weekend and as always thanks for stopping by.
