Winter Wonderland meets SCS......


Morning all,
This mini Pizza box was features on SCS and Jen del Muro posted a tutorial for it.
I thought it would fit the bill for the Winter Wonderland challenge this week which is "A Blue Christmas".  
It's a great little box that can be made out of one sheet of card - so off I went with a piece of soft blue craft card and guess what it turned out OK the lid closed nicely too!
I decorated the top with Basic Grey - Figgy Pudding then stamped some snowflakes from SU  short and sweet over a piece of SU Pacific Point.  My snowman is made using a small oval and circle Nestabilities die. With beads for his eyes and nose, His mouth was drawn in with a Copic marker. His scarf is a small scrap of ribbon and for his hat I drew the shape onto a piece of felt and cut it out. I added a couple of larger beads for his buttons (as kids we used coal! showing my age now ah).  I added some cotton wool, a couple of punched swirls. The computer generated sentiment was printed onto a piece of the soft blue card which had snowflakes stamped on before I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a Spellbinders small tag die.  I've added SU ribbon around the lid and the snowflake charm to finish off.
I'm  thinking I might make a few small cards to put inside or even some chocolate, not sure yet.
Tomorrow I have another Christmas Card (sorry but I have loads to do) and I've used a stamp set that I won!!!!!  OMG yes..... not for my card making expertise though, for my guesswork - tell you more when I post the card.
I'm hoping to add some more photos to the slideshow later. I have some taken on the Doubtful Sound - this would have been one of the most memorable days of our trip.
Anyway I'm going to post this then off to bed............. its nearly 1am again!
