My New Season Swap

A couple of post back I told you about a swap I was doing with Tracie St.Louis, a Canadian demonstrator. I also shared the super card that I'd received from her.
I am hoping by now that she will have received the swap I made for her so am sharing it here today.
This is the swap gift packaged, ready to be boxed and mailed.
The gold and white stripe is one of our gift bags. I've used a Foil Snowflake but turned it onto the reverse side, which is plain. This is topped by a snowflake which is part of the die cut made using a die from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets. I've finished off with a Black Rhinestone Jewel.
This photos shows what's inside the treat bag.
One of our mini pizza boxes. I've cut away a square panel in the centre of the lid using a die from the Stitched Framelits. This makes a frame for the panel set behind.
First I cut a square of white card to size -  3 1/4" . I heat embossed clear stars on to the card then applied various blue inks to create a a sky. On top of this I added a die cut layer using stampin dimensions. The die is from the Hearts from Home thinlets.
To the die cut I smeared some embossing paste which I sprinkled with diamond dust glitter.
On top of these 2 layers I attached a piece of window sheet onto which I stamped Father Christmas and his reindeer in black staz-on ink (now retired). The layers were attached by foam strips to the inside of the pizza box lid. The tab opener has a Black Rhinestone Jewel on it.
Open the box - 
There are 3 mini cards. Each has a topper which has been made using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Father Christmas stamp. They've been shaded in the same way as the sky on the box lid but I left the die in place whilst doing so. This leaves a white border around the edge. The envelopes have also been stamped.
With the contents removed you can see the interior of the pizza box and how it is decorated with Foil Snowflakes and Stitched Shapes Framelits with a stamped sentiment. 
My final photo shows all the components of my swap.
I do hope that Tracie likes it when it arrives. 
I hope you like it too! Let me know what you think.
Have a good week,
