Gift for Natalie!

Hello again! If you have been following my blog you will know that I joined the last Ustamp. I decided to join in the swap sister program and was allocated Natalie. Hiya Natalie! Natalie and I emailed each other as soon as we got our details. We shared a little bit about ourselves. Natalie said that her favourite colours were Real Red and Certainly Celery.

Now aren't these flowery things just soooo cute???? I love the effect but wasn't 100% happy making them. I followed a video tutorial by Barb Mullikin - Barb certainly made it look easy. I just didn't find it easy to do. I also made Natalie a desktop calendar which I utilised Nikki Stalker's video tutorial.

And then I also made Natalie this cute little box, which I cased off Andrea Lowcocks blog.

It looks like a perfect little present and then kaboom, you open it up and there is still a box inside, to hold your goodies.

And of course, you can't send an empty box. The best thing is to send some choccies and I decorated these Dove choccies, just to make them a little bit more special.

Card and Desktop Calendar ingredients:

Card: Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Real Red, Certainly Celery
Punches: Scallop Edge Border, Eyelet Border
Embellishments: Ice Circle Rhinestone, Playground Buttons
Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral

Origami box and choccies:

Card: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red
DSP: Bella Rose
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1" Circle
Ribbon: Real Red 3/4" Polka Dot Grosgrain
Stamp Set: Warm words

Till next time, happy stamping...
