My Craft Spot Stamp Release Day Three

Welcome to Day Three of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party!!  Each day this week, EVERY design team member will be sharing a project made with one of Kimberly's five new stamp sets.  My Craft Spot will also be showing photos of the projects and offering prizes just for commenting!  And on Saturday, we have a fun blog hop planned - with prizes at EACH stop along the way!! 

Today's stamp set release is called "'Tis the Season".  I made a little gift box filled with matching gift cards.
These cards are cut to measure 2.75x2.75 inches.  I stamped each one using the "Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas" sentiment.  I added some score lines and then embossed the top portion with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  The little scalloped circle was cut with Mini Monograms and I added a sweet little Christmas tree from the 'Tis the Season stamp set in the middle, colouring the stars with a yellow gel pen.  I used PopDots to attach the scalloped circles to the cards. I punched a small hole in the top left corner of each card and attached some traditional cherry red baker's twine from My Craft Spot.
I created the box to coordinate with the little gift cards.  The bottom was stamped with the same tree stamp used on the cards.  For the top of the box, I made an extra "card front", but this time used a punch for the scalloped circle so that it would be slightly larger in order to create a more balance look.  I used a Stampin' Up punch around the edges and I finished things off with some faux stitching with my white gel pen.
Don't forget to head to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the Design Team inspiration - and to enter there for your chance to win today's prize: Holiday Baker's Twine!

If you are interested in purchasing the new "'Tis the Season" stamp set, ALL FIVE sets will be available for purchase at My Craft Spot on Saturday.
