This challenge really was a challenge when I hunted through my stash and found not one scrap of paper or stamp that was remotely related to Christmas baking: not a mince pie, Christmas pudding, gingerbread man or pavlova to be seen! Not even a candy cane!
So, that got me to actual Christmas baking and how to present it as a gift. That I could have a go at!
Stampin' Up's cute pizza boxes came to the rescue. After cutting out a window from the top and decorating it up, this what I ended up with.
The box held nine pieces of Cranberry and Pistachio Nougat perfectly. I'd like to say it was made by love by me but time constraints meant it was made with love by someone else.
To go with it, I made a 3x3 card and also decorated the envelope. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red, then overstamped in Versamark. I rubbed some of the Versamark off with a baby wipe. After adding the powder, I used a paint brush to brush off any other areas I wanted to remain red. I used the same method for the sentiment on the envelope.
