Christmas Box

Evening all, hope you've had a great weekend.

I was looking through some magazine freebie christmas papers that I've had for ages and got the idea for some pretty simple cards. I made some some 6 inch card blanks from a4 card, trimmed the papers to fit, and I used Memory Box 'grand merry christmas' and Tattered Lace snowflake to die-cut from the leftover bits of white card. A few gems to finish and hey presto - 5 christmas cards and I also made a matching box to put them in.

Here's a closer look at the box....

... and one of the cards

I shall enter these in the following challenges -

Rudolph Day challenge '2 christmas makes'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'make it colourful'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'dies and/or punches'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'dies or punches' (3rd entry)

Amazingly beautiful way to use that die with the vine background. Really liked that hot pop of the pink and how marvelous that you made a pretty box for the gorgeous card. TFS & hugs too.

What a gorgeous set of Christmas cards. LOVE how you've used this lovely Christmas paper (which I also own, and haven't known quite how to work with!), it looks fabulous and is so perfectly showcased with the lovely MB die and snowflake embellie. Really brilliant. Hugs, Wends x
