Holly Berry Pillow Box

It's day five of Gift Giving Week at Stamp With Sandy! I hope you enjoyed looking at this week's projects as much as I enjoyed making them. Today I have a sweet little Pillow Box for you, adorned with holly and berries.  This is a perfect little container for earings, a bracelet, treats, a gift card or other small gifts. It is also just the right size to drop into a Christmas Stocking!

The inspiration was from the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. This is my favorite color combo for the holidays! 

Although the stamped images look as though they were made for each other, they are actually from two different stamp sets. The Pillow Box was stamped with an image from the Pines and Poinsettias Stamp Set. The greeting is from the Beautiful Season Stamp Set. I'm sure if you look through your collection of stamps, you can find some new pairings, also.

The focal image was punched with the Curly Label Punch. Two additional pieces were punched from Always Artichoke Card Stock, cut in half, and mounted in the back for a frame. The stamp was inked with Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler Markers. The leaves and berries were colored with Ink Pads and a Blender Pen.
