Ladybug Ghirardelli Box

Who loves chocolate? *jumping up and down* ME! I do!!

This little box holds 4 Ghirardelli chocolate squares. You would never know what yummy goodness it hold just by looking at it.

These little guys are so easy to make! You can get the directions here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/ghirardellibox/

My box was made from black Bazzill cardstock and covered with red polka dot paper from the My Mind's Eye Complete Boy stack. (I don't think I've mentioned lately how much I LOVE MME paper! LOL) The ladybug and sentiment are from Stampin' Up's "Very Punny" set and the ladybug was colored with a watercolor pencil. The flowers were made with a Martha Stewart hydrangea punch and the rhinestones are 2mm nail gems I got off eBay. The square and scalloped square were cut using Nestabilities dies in the Cuttlebug, and the white trim was made from the EK Success Dotted Scallop border punch.

And that's all there is to making a cute little chocolate box! :)

Jolly Christmas Card

I feel like I cheated with this card!

The sentiment and pattern papers were downloaded and printed from
http://www.pinkpetticoat.co.uk/. They are from their "Fairy Lights" collection. I used my Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug to cut the circles and scallops. The snowflakes are from two Cuttlebug dies, and they are covered with Star Dust Stickles and adhered with pop dots for dimension. The "jolly" in the sentiment was also made glittery by going over the letters with a Sakura Quickie Glue pen and sprinkling with loose glitter. The light green twill ribbon in from Martha Stewart.

Everyone uses pastel colors for Christmas cards, right?
