Pretty Palette #29

Happy Sunday!  I'm posting a two-fer of sorts today.  Today is my day to post a My Time Made Easy project and time for another MTME Pretty Palette color challenge.  This week's colors are.....

The colors sort of looked Christmas-y to me, so I created a gift set for my niece.  When I went to Poland this summer, I bought my niece an amber charm in the shape of a music note (she's in band at school and loves to play my keyboard...she's actually good!), and I thought I'd give it to her for Christmas.  Here's the set.

I used the Topped Off template and the Frost Bitten cut file for this project. 

I created this mitten card by welding two mittens together in my SCAL program.  The cut file comes with the cuff and the holly and berries.  I used olive and red for for the holly and ran the white cuff through a Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I used a SU marker to do some faux stictching around the perimeter of the mitten.  The paper is the FREE 12 Days of Snowflakes paper.  I altered the color in GIMP to match the aqua color.

Here's the template in a plain white.  I prettied it up by running it through a snowflake folder.  The Frost Bitten cut file was reduced to 50% to create the mittens so they would fit on top of the box.  I added bling for the berries.

And here's the inside showing the box with its lid off and the amber music charm that fits perfectly inside.  I think this is such a cute little project!

You can see more inspiration from the MTME DT also.
