Christmas cartons

These are the sweetie box's (my 2 daughter's ones after they mangled them lol, I forgot to photo them before) I made them for my youngest daughter to give to her Nursery Auntys, I made 20 of them as I wasn't sure how many people worked there, in thje end she only needed 8 or 9 so her big sister took the rest to give to her friends at church.
For these I used Bashful blue and whisper white card, night of navy and versamark ink, heat and stick powder and silver glitter, sparkling jumbo wheel, 1" circle punch and mini milk carton sizzix die.

Baby boom

Everyone seems to be having babies there must be something in the water, this is a card I made for my sister who's just had her 4th child, I decided to make a shaker card using my 1 3/4" circle punch, for this card I used whisper white, bashful blue and marina mist card and ink, marina mist marker with the color spritzer tool, bashful blue striped grosgrain ribbon (retired), silver glass glitter, something sweet stamp set, the saying was from retired hostess set occasional quotes, I also used the left over edges from my dimensionals so the glitter would have a space in the card.
