Eden’s Garden Holiday Gift Box & Card

Eden’s Garden Holiday Gift Box & Card

create these projects with Eden's Garden from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan Demonstrator Christmas project

For my Facebook Live Take 2 I shared two more projects featuring the beautiful Eden’s Garden Collection of products!

Eden's Garden Collection

You can click below to watch how both go together.

It was really fun to create this fancy bow for my box – and it’s actually fun and easy to do!  I used 2 strips of the Evening Evergreen Cotton Paper – both strips measuring 4 x 12 inches.  You can see the step by step way to create this in the recording above.

I received a lot of nice comments about the tag I had made and shared on Monday’s Facebook Live and thought it would be fun to create a card using the same idea -and so I did just that .  I used the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder for the background panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock.  I was a Music Major in college (proud Alum of the University of Michigan!)  and so I was curious whether this embossing folder was actually a song, or just a made of score to look like a real song – so I took the Embossing Folder to my piano – and played the notes – and realized that the folder is actually the script for Joy to the World!  So cool!!!!   So now whenever I use this folder, I will think of one of my favorite hymns – and hope you do as well!

By adding some Cherry Cobbler cardstock into the Eden’s Garden colors of Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen, I created a Christmas card – bringing more versatility to this collection!  the Designer Paper is cut at 1 x 3 inches.

My circle is cropped from the smallest circle of the Layering Circle dies, and stamped with Evening Evergreen ink.  Greeting is from the Tidings and Trimmings stamp set from our Annual Catalog.

For yesterday’s Facebook Live, I created two different cards with different colors – what do you think?  A blue Santa Claus? Why not!  We laughed during my Facebook Live – saying perhaps Santa’s red suit was in the wash that day so he pulled out his blue suit!

My first card had a fun pop up component to it!   Meausurements are listed below – and you can watch the FB Live to see how to assemble – it goes together very quickly!

I used the Gingerbread and Peppermint Designer Series Paper for the card front.  The circle is cut with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and the largest circle from the Layering Circle dies.   I added color to Santa with Stampin’ Blends – my favorite way to add color to any line image!  And don’t you just love that cute little bird?

My word panel is cropped with a stitched shape from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Such a great set of dies! I finished up the card with a sprinkling of Red Rhinestones and a touch of Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

Here is Santa dressed in blue! I love the combination of the Balmy Blue and Black.  The DSP I used is a hostess only pack – it’s shown in our Annual Catalog – we are all loving this paper stack!  One side is black and white and the reverse side has many different colors – making it very versatile!

Again, I used my Stampin’ Blends to add color to Santa and the little sweet bird – and added a touch of Balmy Blue DSP from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ Paper Assortment.  To finish the card, I added some Black/White Gingham Ribbon and several of the cute Halloween Adhesive Backed Stars – clearly these aren’t just for Halloween!   I did have to fussy cut Santa and the Bird – but it wasn’t bad at all!
