SF 2020 Blog Hop - Thanks/Thankful...

Good afternoon and welcome to the Stampin' Friends October Blog Hop.

Today we are saying thanks, something I am sure we are all saying a lot at the moment.  
You may have joined me from Heidi, or starting the hop here.

I had a lovely scented candle in my box of small gifts which I often pick up when I am out and about shopping and wanted to create a nice box to package it in.

Here is what I made...

I wanted to create something delicate and soft so I mixed together Gray Granite and Soft Sea Foam, I think these colours look stunning together.

Here are some closer pictures.

The box measures approximately 7.5cm square by 8cm high and fits the candle perfectly.  I stamped my own DSP using the Comfort & Hope stamp set in Gray Granite and Soft Sea Form and have used the beautiful Metallic Mesh Ribbon to tie it closed.  This ribbon is so delicate and it holds its shape for a perfect bow.

For the card I again used Comfort & Hope so it co-ordinated with my box and used the stamp set Best Year for the greeting.  Unfortunately you cannot see it in the photo but the Thank You and thoughtful I double stamped and offset the second stamp in Soft Sea Foam which gives it a 3d effect in real life.  No matter how hard I tried I couldn't get this to show up in the photographs so you will have to take my word on that, but it gives it a lovely subtle look.

I hope you like my projects today, I am now going to pass you on to the very talented Teri who I know will have something lovely to share with you.

Please hop around and if you can leave us a comment, we love to hear from you.

Happy Stampin'
