Hi There,

I wanted to share a project I created for a Kris Kringle gift for one of my workmates.
The necklace was made from Vintaj copper products & some beautiful copper & green beads from my stash.
I re purposed a Toblerone chocolate box as a gift box. It displays the necklace perfectly, and is pretty enough to sit on a shelf to display on it's own.

The papers I used were from Prima A4 Printery Collection. The Sizzix Ornate Frame was cut from scrap white cardboard & coloured with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain. 
Text was randomly inked over this with Black Archival Ink. Dried with heat tool, then randomly swiped with embossing ink dabber & clear UTEE applied & heat set.
I love this effect. It bubbles & looks so dimensional and aged.

The girl stamp is from Artistic Outpost (Flower Market) over Pewter Distress Stain Background. Black Archival Ink of course.
Flower & leaves were made using the sizzix pinecone die & Autumn gatherings sizzix strip die.

Edges were finished off with Tim Holtz Tissue Tape.

I am entering this gift in the Frilly & Funkie Challenge "Gift from the Heart" over on the Frilly & Funkie Boutique Blog.
The link to this challenge is as follows:

Hope this has inspired some package decorating & getting out those jewellery supplies.  Thanks for coming for a browse.

Cheers  Deb Adams
