Good morning! It's Kit Cat Sunday once again, and I have a fun little project to share with you today. Our sweet Kelly sent out the most amazing kit this month, and along with the wonderful supplies and pretties she sent, was a suggestion to step outside our card making comfort zone, and create a handmade gift for someone special. Included in the kit was a gift tin, and a wooden star ornament to decorate. Well, I have to admit I had to think on this one a while, but creativity finally found me, and away I went!!
First up, we have the actual star ornament, which I covered around the edges, and inside with some of the beautiful DP from DCWV (I think), and I embellished with the gorgeous sparkly red glitter paint, rhinestones, and the pretty poinsettia, with a sparkly green brad center. I used a good dose of Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo to distress, and stain the edges of the wood ornament.
This is the outside of the tin, and I kept it very simple, using this beautiful crinkle ribbon for a bow, and finishing off those pretty rhinestones on the ornament. Once again, I finished everything off with the distress ink, and lots of sponging. I love the look and contrast of these elegant papers and the distressing. It gives it such a beautiful vintage feel, which I LOVE!!
This is the inside of the gift tin, which I covered with some more of that gorgeous paper. I have to shout out a special "THANK YOU" to Kelly for sending such a wonderful kit, and giving me the chance to step outside of my comfort zone to create something that hopefully will give the receiver enjoyment for many years to come. I love ya, Kels!!!!
Now, you've got to go check out what the rest of the Kit Cat gals have created with their kits, because
