Good Morning Everyone!! I hope you have all had a great start to your week!! It has been very good here but still feel like I have a lot of catching up to do on so many things. Life at this time of year is just too busy. I keep saying each year that I am going to slow down and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas and every year it seems like I am doing the same thing...running like a chicken with my head cut off and still behind!!

Anywho...I have some more Christmas gifts or projects to share with you. These will be going in one of my gift baskets. This baskets theme will be red and snowflakes. I was thinking of making it an icecream sundae theme with the addition of some ornaments and gift cans.

The can has Lindt truffles inside as well as an ornament hidden in the middle. The lid is embossed with the snowflake from the Peace and Joy stamp set which was stamped in silver on red foil paper and embossed. The smaller snowflakes are created with the snowflake from Peace and Joy and the Create a Snowflake die from Spellbinders. The tag sentiment uses the His Gift sentiment. (For a close up of the image please click on it.)

Can recipe:
stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- His Gift and Peace and Joy
paper: My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter, very vanilla and American crafts foil paper
Accessories: zva Creative Pearl Flourishes, Prima Poinsettias, gold baubles, ivory lace from Wright, Celebrations red trim, Small paint can

The ornament is created with a combo of Spellbinders dies, a snowflake from Target and the stamp set His Gift. The image in the background is a poinsettia. I added some fun fur yarn and some red trim from Celebrations (purchased at Michaels).

Snowflake ornament recipe:
Stamps: His Gift from Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: Very Vanilla, American Crafts Red and Gold Foil Paper
Accessories: Spellbinders Rennaisance Hearts Pendant die, fun fur yarn, gold snowflake ornament from Target

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow Chris your can and ornament are stunning. I adore the stamps you have used and the luxurious red - your lace/ribbon trim is so beautiful and the handle of the can looks so fun and funky.
