Another Gift

Do you have a Christmas Tree Shop near you? It is just the BEST place to find wonderful treasures!! Everything is so reasonable.....I can't seem to come out of that store without spending at least $75, but for that, I come out with a few bags full of stuff! (They don't have just Christmas things.)

So, that is where this little set came from. For just $3.99, I purchased this stationery set: a fabric covered box with 16 notecards and envelopes inside. Sadly, the batch was well picked over and I was only able to buy 2 of these sets.....all the ones I left behind were marked in some way.
Photo #1 is the "before" picture.
Photo #2 is the outside of the "after," or "transformed" photo. (The color changed in the photo for some reason....still closely matches Mellow Moss.)
Photo #3 is the a photo of the altered notecards and inside of the stationery box.
The finished gift set features the 2 different sets of notecards. One set was simply stamped with the bird from Touch of Nature in Mellow Moss; and the second set was covered with Brocade Background Designer Paper* and stamped with Baroque Motifs in Whisper White Craft Ink. The beautiful Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon** wraps the lid and a little charm from my stash was added.

So, what do you think? Doesn't look like I purchased it for $3.99, does it?!!

*Background Designer Paper will retire with the new catalog due out on January 1, 2008
**Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon is still available through the Wrap It Up Promotion going on now, through December 31.
