 I've got three projects for you today, two cards and a little gift box, using the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

My first card really showcases the beautiful, dramatic Christmas Rose image that is one of the designs in the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper. This rose in the DSP is the same size as the stamp image so you can die cut the DSP with the Rose Dies. Less fussy cutting! Yay!!!!

Once the rose image has been die cut I ran the pieces through the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture to the DSP pieces. Before adhering the die cut pieces to the card I first added a gold embossed splatter and then adhered the DSP pieces on to the Shimmery White Cardstock and raised them up with Dimensionals. The raise pieces really accentuate the DSP and create a beautiful contrast against the Shimmery White cardstock. Add the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots randomly in the open spaces and finish the card off with some cardstock die cuts, contrasting DSP, Gold Shimmery Ribbon and a sentiment from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set.

My second card uses two of the DSP patterns for a contrasting base layer. Accented with the DSP base layer is one of the dies layered under the Gold Shimmer Ribbon. I love the beauty of the rose stamped image and it looks stunning just stamped as is and then heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. The image has been stamped on Shimmery White and then I added a layer of Clear Wink of Stella for more sparkle. It's hard to see in the photo but the shimmer is stunning with the extra layer of sparkle. It really adds to the festive feel to the project.

Finish the card off with the gorgeous Gold Glimmer Enamel Dots, Linen Thread and a sentiment from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set.

Last, and by no means least, is the gorgeous decorated Gold Mini Pizza Box. Have you seen these gorgeous Gold Mini Pizza Boxes? The shiny mini boxes team up perfectly with the rich, regal like colours and the gold foil accents in the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Layer the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP, Vellum, Die Cut Pieces, Gold Shimmer Ribbon, Braided Linen Thread and a sentiment and you have a beautifully decorated gift box for that extra special gift. Aren't the 'bigger' gifts in the smaller boxes? Ha! You then need a beautifully decorated gift box for that 'big' gift. With all the different elements and layering you can do with the Christmastime is Here Suite, these products make it prefect for the avid crafter to make avid projects.
