Just Add Ink challenge #226

Here is my card for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. It is for a wonderful friend of mine who I am having lunch with today.

Below are the presents that I have gift wrapped. I took inspiration from the Just Add Ink previous weeks colour challenge.

 Here they are all together.

New Memory box dies

Having a play with some of the new dies I have purchased lately.

My favourite has to be this Beloved Stars die, it is just so pretty.I have used it twice here, along with the Cabrini Ornament which I inset in the card front and backed with paper from Stampin' Up!.
This is the Lamp Post die. I cut it twice, once in brown and again in white. I layered the two die cuts up to imitate fallen snow and then added glitter. I have hidden the base of the die with more snow to provide a space for the sentiment. The little bird, stocking and sentiment are from a Papertrey Ink stamps and the mouse is from Penny Black.

Pretty box

Another box made with the We R Memory Keepers gift box maker. I used some retired DSP and the Tag topper punch to make the band for the bow. The front panel is decorated using the Window Frames framelits and Stippled Blossoms stamp set.

The tag was cut using a Papertrey Ink die and backed with Old Olive card. It was decorated with the Stippled Blossom stamp set again. Ribbon from Stash, twine from the Twinery.

All items used are from Stampin' Up! unless noted.
