A Start On The Christmas Crafting While Enjoying A Break

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying your crafting.  Over at the Papermill things are getting very Christmassy and I am getting on nicely with my Christmas cards and gift boxes.  Papermill Direct  have a fabulous offer on red card and red and green light card so pop over and check it out in the Christmas goodies shop, It's great for Christmas crafting. 

Not a lot of craft materials with me while I was away but I did manage to make a gift bag, matching card and a card for one of the grandchildren.  Using white linen, red and pale blue card from Papermill Direct and a little patterned festive paper I made a start on my Christmas cards, here they are.

Firstly I printed the penguine digi from Pink Petticoat, coloured him with Promarkers and added Glamour Dust, cut him and the backing circles out with Spelbinder dies (done before I left home).  The image and circles were glued together ready to be added to the card.  The card was scored to make a triangle stepper card, (three equal sides and two shorter front folds)  my idea was to make a triangular box to slip into the card for sweets  when I got home but I managed to make that too.  The front folds were covered with patterned paper (not sure where from) and the image attached.  The triangl box was covered with some of the patterned paper too.

The box and matching card were made using red card stamped with a snowflake and embossed with white powder, two blue stars were stamped with a red snowflake.  Ribbon and tag were attached to the box and the card.

A tutorial for the box can be found HERE, a very simple box to hold sweets or small Christmas gifts.

Papermill Direct have a wonderful selection of card in beautiful Christmas colours,  check the shop out for special offers and the Christmas Goodies too.
