Guest Design spot...Anything but a card

Good morning friends,
To day I have something other than a card to share. A few weeks ago I was a winner at  Lexi's Creations, and I was honoured to be invited as a Guest Designer for this week's challenge....Anything but a card.


I chose the lovely image of Sammie Snowman, so decided to make a gift packet. These always come in handy over the festive season.

I coloured the image with distress ink pads.
Added texture paste for the fur on the hat,
3D pearl maker for the buttons, and crystal glaze on the eyes.
Crystal ice glitter on the snow
I cut out snowflakes with a CB die added some glitter to these and attached them to the paper packet. Finished off with a red ribbon.
I also made a tag, but just realised this is hanging at the back of the packet...silly me!

I do hope you will go over and have a look at the lovely projects that have been made by the ladies of the DT, and I am sure you can make something for this challenge.

I will enter this into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss challenge #199...Texture
Pumpkin Spice challenge #35...Anything goes

Inspire me Fridays...Linky Party
