Christmas Kisses

There's a project parade going on over at the Verve Blog, and today is my day to share a project under $10. This one totaled $6.67.

eta: I've been asked about the Petal Pot. It's made of Blank Board, and you can find it at Emma's Paperie HERE.

I wanted to try something a little different and use black as my base and make it clean and simple. I rarely use black or go the CAS route. But I like how this turned out. I used the sentiments "Merry Christmas" and "from our house to yours" from the Verve set Oh Christmas Tree. And the flake from the set Frosty Flakes was stamped with White Craft ink onto black cardstock. The cardstock is all Papertrey. For the finishing touches, I embossed the card and petal pot panels, and added some rhinestones and decorative borders with punches.

Here's a close up of the Petal Pot:

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your homemade goodies for the upcoming giving season! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not use 'em? You could even win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store. So, head on over to the Verve blog to see how you could win.


Thank you so much for dropping by!!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Happy Stamping!
