Let's start with an apology....
There was a little hiccup on the blog hop for Day 1 A Christmas Wish. Sorry about that, Teresa's post is up now so if you get a chance check out both.
Here is the order of our blog hop and all the links are in my left hand side bar.

Leave a comment at each of the stops along the way for your chance to win today's set, which is another of the Borders By Design - No1.
For my first project I've made a 4 x 4 inch card and what I call a Twist and Turn Box, perfect for small gifts or to fill with lollies.
I wanted a real country style gift set which Kraft, red check and a few hearts gives me. I did reach for the fancy sentiment border from 'A Christmas Gift' though......it's so sweet!
Wish I could tell you where this pattern came from! I think I watched a You Tube tutorial.....sadly didn't book mark it.
On the box I stamped the polka dot border then embossed the first layer. The gingham has had one of the small accent stamps added and the green spray is the same as used on the card. I've just used a continuous line to wrap around the box, with a couple more of the pretty accent stamps for good measure.
There's that sentiment again.....oops can't help myself! Attached with some red twine with the smallest bells I could find tied to the ends.
Have you checked the Annabelle shop lately? Andrea has put together a card kit, it's a great buy and perfect for a stocking filler or that crafty friend. I mention this right now because my second project features some of the goodies from the kit. More about that at the end of my post.
For this card I've stamped another of the borders in Close to Cocoa on some red card. Just to dress up the red card really, rather than embossing. I love these borders for that alone. The label (part of the Card Set) has been stamped with the elegant sentiment from A Christmas Wish......ooh and there's the fancy scroll at the bottom LOL! I've also sponged around the tag for an aged look. Love this ribbon (also part of the card kit) and 5 sultana sprinkles along the bottom.
Here's the inside.....The Jolly Santa paper used on this card is from the Kaisercraft 6 x 6 set 'Tis The Season Collection'. My P.I. helped with today's projects cutting the gold bauble and the white inside piece. It also cut the large scallops and the V shaped cut-out on this card. I used the piece left behind for the red section on the inside page
