Christmas Gift - full of yummy.....

Wow - another week has gone by.  I really do not know where the time is going.  Christmas is sneaking up on us really quickly with only 19 more sleeps to go before the big day!

At Polka Doodles this week (week 49), we were asked to Make a Gift for Christmas, but you can enter with Anything Goes for Christmas.  I decided to have a go at making a 4-drawer easel card, which I have wanted to make for ages.  I found a fabulous tutorial by a lady called Kris and heres her blog and link to this tutorial.


I really enjoyed putting this together, the tutorial is very thorough and easy to follow.


I did use my Martha Stewart scoreboard to score the card stock, for the drawers, so I could get really good creases and used my bone folder too!


I used 4 large brads as my little drawer pulls, making a small hole in the centre of each drawer to push the brad through.  I inked all the edges of all the layers, drawers and elements with red ink.


All the elements of the card are from the Polka Doodles, A Home for Christmas CD.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pre-coloured images.


Look, I filled the little drawers with yummy Swiss chocolates, each little drawer held 9 little chocolates.


For the easel stopper, I used several different sizes of holly laid on top of each other and then placed those up on a pop dot, along with the little rounded square sentiment.  One last photo to try and show the little sparkle.  I added some Sakura Stardust Gel pen to the stars, the snow on the house and the little lady's dress.


Now, who do I give it too?  That is the dilemma.  Maybe I will have to make some more :-)

So, as you are all no doubt busy making lots of gifts and things for Christmas, why not go along and enter this weeks challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  12. Fantabulous!! You always manage to outdo yourself. I made your four layer tree (Sil file you shared) and I was happy I could do something like you did. How did you cut out the designs on the Cameo, I wonder? Is this using trace? Sounds like I know something, doesn't it. Well, I can spell trace - can't do it, but can spell it.

  33. LOVE THIS Karon!!! WOW, I especially love how you let some images hang out over the outside of the square card. I was trying to tell my daughter that it's OK to do that when she thought her Christmas tree was sticking out over the edge a li'l bit. LOL. - I'll have to show her your card/box. LOVE that you used my tutorial too. I'm so flattered you gave it a try!! Thanks for the shout out :) Have yourself a very Merry Christmas!!!
