THEME - ORANGE
This was a fun challenge to do as I would never have considered an orange card, but I will now. This card went to one of my daughter's class teachers, who I think will appreciate the unconventional colour.
Her present has 3 parts. First this chocolate box, which I made a few of, based on this Splitcoast Stampers tutorial. The slider card I left off but I will have a go at it in future.
I have made quite a few calendars heavily inspired (read copied) by Amber from Damask Love. This girl is SERIOUSLY talented, please have a look around her blog if you haven't come across her yet. I didn't change things too much, except for seasonal stuff and a couple of traditions. The landscape calendar cases came from Taylored Expressions, as did the inserts. I don't know if they are available in Australia, it seems to take a bit of time for things to reach us. For my next batch I will probably use the downloads provided by Amber for the inserts.
And finally, a box of Christmas cards, made under my DSP rationalisation policy, then decorated a card box. Lindt easter bunnies definitely come in handy for those bells.
I will be back with other presents and cards for school, they are slowly going out the door, though my daughter was home from school today with a nasty cold. She is supposed to be swimming in her first club meet tomorrow - don't know if that will happen yet, then she has a solo at the school's "Carols under the Stars" on Sunday. She has wanted to do this for a while so I hope she is feeling much better by then.
