Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

November 14, 2016

International Ambassadors Informal Blog Hop

Hi Everybody,

Are you ready for another blog hop with some of the International Ambassadors?  
For this month we chose for our theme the approaching holiday season to make anything but a card
My choice was to use a die by a designer that is new to Spellbinders Marisa Job.

Marisa does beautiful work and I have been a follower of her for a long time.
But this is the "Surprise Me Box"  and it is part of her Special Occasions Collection 
It makes the most adorable little Crackers for your table and not just for Christmas. 
Imagine these all set out with your own colour scheme and each with a little gift tucked inside for your guests. 
They are not very big but they do make a statement and they are very easy to make. 
You will be able to get two from one sheet of A4 card.

I stamped plain white card with a snowflake pattern and then cut them out. 
I wrapped them with matching ribbon and added one of the little tags in the set stamped with a Christmas greeting.

I added in some leaves and a glitter star and they are ready to add to my table. I made quite a few ... but I can't tell you what is inside the Surprise Me Box !!
Why don't you pop over and see what my colleagues have designed for you to see ...
