Moving Along with the Times - Anything goes Christmas Challenge

DT Call - if you'd like to join us as a design team member for MAWTT please visit the MAWTT blog and let us know.  We are looking for a new teamie! 

Time for Team A to run with Christine's challenge this week for the Moving Along with the Times fortnightly challenge.  Christine chose Anything Goes Christmas for a theme and so with the festive season getting closer I've shared a gift box with you which I made using the Stampin' Up! gift box punch board and Holly Berry Happiness stamp set and Holly Berry Builder punch.  Do come and join our challenge this fortnight here.

To create a background I've stamped with tip top taupe ink using a stamp from Timeless Textures.  I didn't reink the stamp every time to create different shades of colour.  The holly is stamped in black memento ink and then the 'filler' stamp is used to colour the leaves in garden green ink.  The berries are another stamp from the same set.  The bow is two step stamping also with the same black and real red ink in two stages.  The punch is perfect then for quick and easy cutting out of the bow.

A little layering with garden green and copper foil card stock and some beautiful lace through which I threaded real red bakers twine using a long needle.

With lovely boxes like this you can turn homemade cookies into a wow teacher or neighbour gift especially as the gift box punch board can be used to make all sorts of sized boxes.

Check out the Stampin' Up! Extravaganza event this week to see awesome discounts on the Holly Berry Builder Punch and many other popular products.

More soon Zx
