Red & Green Christmas

Morning all! Today I thought I'd take a break from card making and create something to make a gift look a bit special. I printed a couple of sheets of the backing paper (onto 300gsm card stock) and created a simple 'sleeve' to slide a box of sweets into then created different layers to decorate.

Most of what I used has come from the Festive Christmas collection some of which I tweaked in my graphics programme before printing off. The gingerbread 'people' were coloured in with my pencils adding a little bling to make them a little more 'festive'. I stamped and embossed the 25th stamp from the Red Red Robin set & added it to the top left corner
