Today is the last day of Preview Week for the Winter Collection of Create with Connie and Mary. We have a FREE tutorial for everyone and everyone has one last chance to win some blog candy. Pop on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see what fun we are having.
Speaking of having fun, I am having fun relaxing, shopping, and visiting with family at the beach house at Capistrano Beach. The other day I had some quiet time so I pulled out some stamp stuff. I decided to make one of my favorite types of projects and it's what I call I "box top"card/flat pouch. To make one you simply cut four squares of paper or card stock and fold each of them in half both directions. Then you adhere them in a plus shaped formation and then fold the sides in like the top of a card board box.
I used Baked Brown Sugar card stock and Season of Style DSP for my "box top" pouch and then I added a tag that I made using a few new things. The stamp image is from a new photopolymer set called Christmas Tagables and the tag pieces are from the Pop and Place tag kit. To ink the image I used Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers. In between the two tags is a small Gold Foil Paper snowflake cut from the Festive Flurry framelits, I think it looks like a sheriffs badge.
Tucked inside my "box top" pouch is an ornament I made using the Festive Flurry bundle. First I stamped the three snowflakes with Versamark ink and then poured Heat and Stick Powder overtop. I heat set the powder and then added the Gold Glitter. With a little hot glue I layered the three snowflakes for lots of dimension. In the sun this sparkles like crazy.
