Today I am sharing a gift set which includes a Slimline Pop-up card, a mini gift bag and a Candy Heart Box. First up I am sharing my slimline card.

The photo above shows the inside of the card. For this I have used the new Raising Platform Pop-up die set. I can see me having a lot of fun with this die set in the future, and the great thing is that it fits into a Slimline card that is at least 3 1/2 inches wide.

I used the Small Script - Christmas die set to add the Christmas sentiment to the pop-up label. I added another of the large labels in white in the lower right hand corner of the card as a place to write a hand written greeting. I added candy canes which are from the Christmas Borders 2 die set. I used the Candy Cane Border and cut them apart.

I kept the front of my card simple. The circles on the front are from the Mini Gift Bag die set and I added more of the candy canes to the circles.

As mentioned above I also made matching Candy Box and Mini Gift Bag.

For the Gift Box, I used the new Candy Heart Gift Box, with comes with Hearts and Conversation Hearts ... perfect for Valentine's Day and anything love related. As Christmas is only a few week's away I decided to use it to make a Christmas themed gift Box. As you can see, I added another Candy Cane to the centre of the square window opening.

And finally a coordinating gift bag using the new Mini Gift Bag die set. This is perfect for tiny treats or gifts or even a gift card. I added a Christmas sentiment to the tiny gift tag which is also included in the set.

The circle in the centre of the bag, is also from the die set and I added another of the candy canes.
