Christmas Gift

Hello!  Christmas is almost here.  Taking time out to make a card for the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Stamp TV.  Cat asked us to be inspired by a box of candy (shown below) to make a project.   I decided to make a box for my card using DCWV red foil card stock.  I stamped the box lid from GKD Beyond Baskets 2 with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold EP.  This was tricky since the foil tends to curl up with the heat, just be careful. I fussy cut the lid adding a box.  I then heat embossed gold snowflakes on the box and added die cut white snowflakes taking my cue from the inspiration photo.  Snowflake stamps and dies were from GKD Merry & Bright kit.  I stamped the tag and sentiment using more stamps from Beyond Baskets 2 and attached it with narrow red satin ribbon to the gift.  Used a layer of GKD Metallic Gold CS that was embossed with Darice Snowflake EF for the background.  Used White Glossy CS as the base to keep all layers shiny.
I must say I was quite pleased with the way this card turned out.

I love those little boxes of Russel Stover candies. Four is just enough! The box image on your card looks just like the one in the photo! Really sweet. Thanks for the heat embossing tip.
