             For my project today, I wanted to create a simple little gift set. I love taking something everyday and creating it into a gift - I love all the peppermints that are around this season - from candy canes, to peppermint mochas and my favorite:  little peppermint candies. I decorated a tin with some peppermint candies and created a coordinating card in peppermint colors with kraft. 
The beautifully scripted stamp set called: Christmas Nested Sentiments from JustRite Stampers has wonderful sentiments. This stamp set also coordinates with all of the nested frames (including the Christmas Nested Frames). For the tin, I used from this set the sentiment: "May beautiful moments and happy memories, Surround you with Joy this Christmas."  I love this sweet sentiment and since it can be hard to adhere to metal sometimes, I tied the sentiment around the tin by punching some brads and tying it together with some Baker's Twin. On one side I stamped a snowflake from the Sparky and Friends stamp set from JustRite stamps in white onto kraft paper and then adhered it to the side of the sentiment. 
Here is a picture of the card. I stamped the snowflakes from the Sparky and Friends Cling stamps from JustRite Stamps in white and then embossed it onto red cardstock :

Here is a close up of the embossing and the snowflake details:

The snowflake that I embossed ontop of the button was with some polysparkle EP for a bit of glitter - its hard to see in the pic but its pretty in the light:

I created the card with these three main colors, red, kraft and white. I had fun creating this card and tried to keep the accessories simple and can't wait to give this little giftset out :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bazzill (red and kraft), white cardstock from PTI
Stamps:  Christmas Nested Sentiments, Snowflakes are from the: Sparky and Friends stamp set and the Sparky and Friends Cling stamp set from JustRite Stampers
Ink: Memento LadyBug Red and White ink 
Accessories: pearlescent EP, corner chomper, liquid pearls, cuttle bug embossing folders, MS snowflake punch (both large and small sizes), bling, dimensionals, Baker's Twine, spellbinders nesties, white gel pen, button from Whirligig, ruffled ribbon from stash.

It was so much fun to make this project and I can't wait to see what everyone has created today!!! Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous JustRite Christmas inspiration they have for you on the hop today!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
Sankari :)
