This weeks challenge at Susana's Store blog is to prepare a gift set. I decided to prepare an Easter gift-set -since the holiday is almost around the corner.
For my card I decided to colour the Buttermilk Hen with my copics and then create a card 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" with my soft blue cardstock and the DPs from Laura Ashley.
I used my sandblock on the DP edges.
I then found an old mini-basket to put my gift in - being eggs and hens for decoration of a sprig of (birch) twigs. I added some matching ribbon from SU. After that I altered a match box with the same set of DPs and then used my SU punches to cut out the image - Violet Cupcake with. The image is also coloured in matching colours with the DP with my copics. Added a Bella Bauble to the center of the DP flower.Flowers is always a must when it's time for gifts - so I decided to use this tall vase that is perfect for one single flower. (It's sooo tall - and that's why the first picture in this post is a little bit blurry - sorry for that)
I added a "tag" on the vase/flower. This "tag" can also hold some small items - like a piece of chocolate. However - I needed something to go with the matches and then the incense (that my sister-in-law purchased in India) was just perfect. I picked the one's that had the matching colours - of course ;-))
Julia with flowers had to be on this tag with the matching DPs. I wanted to colour her with a more "Laura Ingalls"-style - if you know what I mean. The different warm greys does not really show here, but.....
Well - now it's your time to be creative - so please share your gift-set ideas with us and upload them on SCS or PCP with the keyword "TIOT12".
