Our theme for this hop is "Tis the Season" so get ready to see some beautiful holiday creations!

---------------------

I had so much fun creating this project!!!

For my main image, I used the adorable Snowman Fun (H188) stamp!
I just love snowman images!!
I thought it was the perfect image to use to add some of the die cut Wee Petites - Snow Flurries snowflakes too! 

What a fun pacakge!

Behind the image, I have some layers, which I stamped the Snowflake Swirl Background (J105) on the top and bottom of the patterned paper, I also then added a strip from the die cut Whispers - Bubbles Background!  

You can see the Whispers - Bubbles Background even more as you open the package:

A look at it completely opened up:
Perfect to add a little gift in!!

I love the Have Yourself (E512) sentiment, which is what I used for the inside of this gift box, along with using the Snowflake Cluster (A71) stamp to add snowflakes around the sentiment!

Fun part is I masked the Have Yourself (E512) sentiment, so that the "Merry" and "Christmas" didn't stamp! Gave me the chance to use the awesome Sweet Wordlets - Merry Christmas die!

 The die works perfectly with the sentiment!!  Love it!!

---------------------

This card is incredible. I love the snowman with the little flakes, but then to open it and have a secret compartment is just awesome. TFS Denise

What a great box for a gift card or something small. Wouldn't have thought of using polka dot paper, but it so works. I like how you used 2 different fonts for the Christmas sentiment on the second card.
