Play Date Cafe #56



















I Just love the colours set this week by Julie great to make another christmas card!  This week at Play Date Cafe its Player Appreciation Week, pop over and check out all the fabulous inspiration.

After I had made my card I decided to make a little gift box and matching tag as I have the perfect gift to put in this little box!
I made the poinsettia  using a Sizzix Die cut and then running it through a Houndstooth embossing folder to give it texture.  The Olive PP has been pleated and then run through the sewing machine to hold it in place.  This was a really simple card to make, I think I will making a few more as I still have nowhere near enough cards made!!
The gift box is made from a A5 piece of card which I also ran through the same embossing folder before folding it into shape.






















Sorry the photographs are so poor today, its really dull and overcast so not good for photography!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and thank you so much for all the lovely comments you have left me over the past week I really appreciate them all!!!!

Sally, when I saw this in the Flickr pool, I didn't realize the flowers and box were embossed with the houndstooth design! Now I love this even more! Wonderful design!
