Sweet like chocolate



Helloooo all, look at these little beauties (I know I'm so modest ha! but it's mostly to do with the fact that I love looking at this ribbon and maybe stroking it ;) Some boxes to house the Christmas cards I made for my Mum from here and here. I made the base from co-ordinating card stock and then the lids with very vanilla card stock and matching designer series paper with a window sheet (acetate) stamped with white stazon with the Stampin' Up!s silent night stamp as you can see below.


If you look closely you can see a ghostly figure in the reflection from the acetate on the above picture which is me! -so tricky to photo hee hee. My husband said they look like a box of chocolates hence the title for today - I will take that as a complement (I think).

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamp: Silent night.
Ink: White stazon.
Card stock: Very vanilla, old olive and chocolate chip.
Paper: Ski slope designer series paper(retired).
Misc: Chocolate chip and old olive wide striped grosgrain ribbon.

These are so cute Emma. Love the ribbon. I am sooooo tempted to buy some. I might have to start robbing banks. Or even play the lottery to try for that pink expression lol. Have a great day. Lesley
