Painted Harvest Christmas Card and Gift Box Envelope

I'm so sorry I haven't managed to post recently, I've a bit of a back problem and I've had such a terrible back ache that sitting at the computer for too long hurts :( but enough about me. I wanted to share with you lovely people a super cute little project I completed recently with the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. This stamp set is hidden at the back of the Autumn/Winter Catalogue on page 49. It's not one that jumps out at you at first but it makes the most beautiful cards and projects and not just for Christmas.

I made this little card 4cm x 4cm with layers of Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. The base is 8cm x 4cm and folded in half at 4cm in Crumb Cake, the Cherry Cobbler is cut at 3.5/8cm x 3.5/8cm and the Whisper White is cut at 3 3/8 x 3.3/8cm . I layered the card stock one on top of the other and then I used the leaf stamp and stamped it all the way round in Old Olive Ink on the Whisper White card.  I used the little holly stamp from the Carols of Christmas stamp set and my Stampin' Write Markers in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green i used the pens to colour the stamp in and then stamped them 6 times, I fussy cut them out and placed them on the leaf design as you can see below. The sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and i stamped that out and placed that on the front of the card.

The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board which is a super piece of equipment to have and is so easy to use.  I needed an envelope that was bigger in depth then normal so I just adapted the measurements to make it deeper.
