JUGS#34

Hi everybody!  This week, Just Us Girls is challenging us to use a template! 

JUGS34

Check out the JUGS blog for all the details---you can find info on various templates to use.   I chose one from MTME called the Card Catchall….and it was very easy and fun to make!  Since I have been making a Christmas card each week, I thought it would be appropriate to make a little holder for some of them while they’re waiting for December!  I originally was going to do a prototype with some Kiwi Kiss textured paper I had, but it turned out so well, it became my project.  What do you think?

I kept it pretty simple; the DP is Basic Grey’s Eskimo Kisses, along with Rose Red, Whisper White and Baja Breeze; all stamps are from Waltzingmouse’s Sewing Box Christmas….such a cute set!  I used a Nestie for the circle embellishment as well as a rhinestone brad on the snowflake….and some retired SU ribbon for the front.  My trusty gel pen added some highlights.  I can see that this little box could have lots of possibilities for other goodies…have any suggestions?    Be sure to check out the JUGS blog to see what the other designers have come up with!  They are sure to inspire!

Love your box. I love this idea of making Christmas cards all year....makes complete sense, but I don't think I could do that when it is hot out! It looks great though!
