Hello Friends!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed the weekend!! We had a major ice storm here in Virginia and were trapped indoors and off the roads for both Sunday and Monday.  There is something cozy about being indoors with the Christmas lights, fire on, and just cozy and warm as a family while it is sleeting outdoors.  Not that I want to lose electricity, internet, and telephone all the time but once in a while during the hectic holidays, it is refreshing!!  I thank God for that time of rest and time with the family!!  It gave us time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and on Him!!

Today I would like to share a project made for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge which is to create a project that is 3D or uses an alternate fold.

I made a gift set.

The easel card uses the New Release ODBD Ornate Borders and Flowers with the custom matching dies Ornate Borders and Flowers die as well as the Ornate Border Sentiments.  The dry embossing on the background is Sizzix x's and o's and circles and dots embossing folder.
The flower or design behind the middle "flower is created with the corner die in the Ornate Borders and Flowers die cut from Gold Glitter paper and Baja Breeze.

The box is created using the ODBD Ornate Background using embossing resist (pearl embossing powder with Baja Breeze and soft sky sponged on) and the Ornate Borders and Flowers stamp set and custom matching Ornate Borders and Flower dies.  The carton uses the Sizzix carton die from Stampin Up.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
