Home for the Holidays: Day 13

Hi everyone. This month's Verve Project Parade is coming to an end. I've so enjoyed seeing the creative projects the other divas have been sharing! Each one under $10. How cool is that!?! Well, I have a small project to share with you also. I used the smallest Petal Pot that comes packaged with two larger pots for $8.95. Since I only used one, even though it's the smallest one, I'll say it was $2.98. The kisses inside were $3.69. For a total of $6.67.

I wanted to try something a little different and use black as my base and make it clean and simple. I rarely use black or go the CAS route. But I like how this turned out. I used the sentiments "Merry Christmas" and "from our house to yours" from the Verve set Oh Christmas Tree. And the flake from the set Frosty Flakes was stamped with White Craft ink onto black cardstock. The cardstock is all Papertrey. For the finishing touches, I embossed the card and petal pot panels, and added some rhinestones and decorative borders with punches.

Here's a close up of the Petal Pot:

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your homemade goodies for the upcoming giving season! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not use 'em?

And, as with all of our project parades, we've got prizes!
To enter, just link up your Home for the Holidays creation to the Mr. Linky widget at Day One's post before midnight MST on Thursday, November 26. One lucky stamper will win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store. And for another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout out in the comments as they parade their fabulous creations inspired by this month's theme.
