Jaded Blossom December Challenge

This month, because it's their one year birthday, there's a special Crafter's Choice challenge going on at Jaded Blossom.  I happen to have just ordered four new stamp sets from them and to have *ahem* a few more on my wish list, so I wanted to try some of them out.  This one's going to be a little more picture heavy than most of my posts.

For this project, I made a gift box and six cards.  The gift box was cut from Wild Card at "Fit to Page," which just so happened to be 7 inches with a 12x12 mat.  I used some patterned paper from Paper Studio's "Happy Hootin' Holidays" stack, which I bought at Hobby Lobby to use in my December Daily/Christmas journal.  I cut the liner in green patterned paper from a K&Company pad that I bought at Michaels.   I can't seem to find it online, and I already threw away the evidence of my shopping spree the cover of the pad and all the embellishments (yes, I bought the entire line), but I will update this post if and when I figure it out.  I stamped the postage stamp and sentiment in brown from Jaded Blossom's "Santa Mail" and put it in the top corner.

Next we come to the cards.  Each card is 4 inches square, and the tag on the front is cut from Elegant Edges at 3.5 inches.  All of the twine is hand made.  Each card as a faux front that is 4x4 inches that I used to wrap the twine around, then adhered down to the real front of the card.  These first two cards were made with Jaded Blossom's "Christmas Wishes" stamp set.  I love it!

The wedding dress and sentiment on the grey card are from Jaded Blossom's "Wedding Wishes" set and the tree and sentiment are from their "Simple Sayings" set.

The tree and saying below are, again, from Jaded Blossom's "Simple Sayings" set and the pumpkin and sentiment are from Jaded Blossom's "Thanksgiving Wishes" set.  

Here's the final product, all ready to gift!  I adhered the back of the box together with some washi tape and it's all set!
