Christmas gift set for CSAYL

Happy Friday my friends.  This week's challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long is to make a gift set.  No sponsor this week.  The winner will be a guest designer in October.

Here is my little gift box and matching Christmas card.
The box and card base are SU Crumb Cake. The mats are SU Real Red, the banners are Old Olive and Very Vanilla. The DSP is from SU Holly Berry Bouquet (retired).   The poinsettias are made from Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia with Real Red and Old Olive CS.  I added yellow rhinestones to the centers. The sentiments are from SU More Merry Messages.  The Very Vanilla layer is embossed with The Paper Studio Holly Leaves EF.
Here are close-up photos of the card and gift box.  I used the negative border cut from the gift box to separate the layers on my card.

Unfortunately I didn't have any goodies to put in the box, but it still turned out cute and will be perfect for a special little gift.  I colored the sentiment with Old Olive and Real Red markers before stamping it.  The flags are cut with MFT Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers die-namics.

Don't miss all the great projects by the other designers over on Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  Hope you will be inspired to play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
Happy Stamping,
