Project Parade - Day 10

Welcome to Day 10 of the Verve Project Parade! I have a super fun project for you today!

When I was thinking of what I'd create for this Anything But a Card challenge, my mind went blank! So I scanned my stamp room, and my eyes fell on this tin full of Primas. Eureka! What a perfect little way to package a few cookies, or some gift tags!

It's hard to see in the photo, but I stamped the pink strip with the background from Snow Wonderful in Versamark Dazzle Champagne Watermark ink, then embossed with Clear embossing powder. It has a nice shimmer to it in real life that's almost impossible to capture in a photo. 
The top of the tin was wrapped in 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon with a little bow, and the top was covered using cardstock layers cut with my Circle Nestabilities dies. The top layer is the other side of the Fancy Pants Arctic Chill paper that I used to wrap the bottom of the tin. I sponged all the edges, then added the sentiment in Brilliance Pearlized Chocolate ink.
To finish off the tin, I stamped the snowman three times in the same Brilliance ink, then colored the appropriate pieces with Copic markers. I cut them out and layered them with Pop Dots to make the snowman jump right off the tin! Here is a photo of the tin open:

I really ejoyed using these non-traditional colors for a winter card, and I hope you enjoyed my project today! Happy Wednesday!
Wanna play along? All you have to do is create Anything But a Card and link up your creation to this post by noon on Friday, December 5th. You don’t have to use Verve Stamps, but if you have ‘em, why not use 'em? If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword VVPP08 so we can see all the ABC wonderfulness in one place! A random participant will be drawn on December 6th to receive $15 in Verve Bucks to spend at the Verve Stamps store! Good luck and have fun!
