Easter Card and Candy Box – by Holly McMillen

We have another WOW! project to share today. Holly created a lovely Easter card with a matching candy box that holds four little nuggets. Coordinated gift items are always a big hit, not to mention so very fun to make! Take a look:

This is the pair. I am soooo loving these colors. They are rather non-traditional for Easter, but so very gorgeous and rich!

That chocolate brown cross just POPS off the lighter background.

Here’s the card. The sentiment is stamped onto vellum.

Vellum always adds a lovely, elegant touch to any project.

This is the candy box opened up with the fun little wraps for the tiny nuggets.

A double-sided paper is perfect for a box where you can see both sides.

The vellum belly band just slips right over the box once closed.
