First Rudolph of 2015

It's the 25th already and time for the first Rudolph challenge of 2015 which you can now find over on the Scraps of Life by Scrappymo blog. I've gone for an easy production line make of cards and matching box with just a bit of die-cutting and sticking.

I made 6x6 inch card blank from A4 card and used the leftover snippets to die-cut the Memory Box happy christmas and Marianne Design tree. The papers were a magazine freebie and I just added a few gems to each card to finish off.
