Good Monday Morning! Today is the big day for the JustRite Christmas Blog Hop! I have a card and a box to share with you. The new JustRite Stampers set that I'm showcasing is called "Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers". It's a great set to have on hand for all of your Christmas projects. Take a look.
I love the sentiment on this stamp..."Snowflakes are Winter's butterflies". I used Taken with Teal and Ruby Red Stampin' Write Markers to color in my image. I stamped it twice so I could layer the circles. I used the 1 3/4", 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches. Then I used my Big Shot and Snowflake #2 Bigz Die in Ruby Red. Since snowflakes are butterflies, they can be red, lol!
I used Holiday Lounge Designer Series Paper for the background and a Ruby Red card base. The neutral color in the Holiday Lounge DSP is Sahara Sand, but the Kraft Taffeta Ribbon is a great match.
Here's the box I created. Last holiday season I made a box similar to this one and provided a tutorial that you can see here. The only difference (besides paper choices) is that I used the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Windows Movers and Shapers that will be in the new Holiday Mini on September 1. I used the die to make a "peek a boo" cut out.
Here's a better look at the JustRite Stampers stamp.
I used Real Red card stock with the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die and Big Shot. The box part is constructed with Chocolate Chip card stockI used Merry Moments Designer Series Paper as well. I stamped the JustRite Stampers on a piece of acetate with Black Stazon. Then I used Sharpie Markers to color the backside of the image.
The final touch on my box is Chocolate Chip Grosgrain around the entire lid and a bow from the Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon (a must have in the ribbon department!). You can get a taste of this ribbon and all the new ribbon in my ribbon share!
