Fabulous Friday - Vintage Santa Gift Box

Hi everyone.  It's Friday!  Only 7 more sleeps till Christmas Day :-)

Hope you are all doing well and getting ready and enjoying the Holiday Season.

Today's card is for the new Challenge starting at Polkadoodles.  Our theme is Anything Goes, everyone's favourite, and you will be able to enter until the 15 January, 2016.  The Design Team is taking a little break over the festive season and we'll be back on the 8th January with and inspirational post :-)

For my card today I used a wonderful tutorial by Cristi of Paper Hoarder Disorder on You Tube.  She made this wonderful chip-board easel card.  I didn't use chip board for my card, just 100lb card stock, but I was still happy with how well it came together.  Here's the LINK :-)

I have used the wonderful Polkadoodles Studio 12 Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter collection and the fabulous Vintage Father Christmas :-)  I think I am obsessed with this collection LOL!

I love the fabulous papers and inked all the edges of all the elements.

I added a little Sakura Glitter Gel Pen and then also used the Merry Christmas cut file off the collection, to add to the bottom of the top layer.

I adore this Father Christmas, with his lovely rosy cheeks.  Nikky's art work is gorgeous! I cut all my pieces for this project using my Silhouette Cameo.  Popped up Father Christmas on some foam tape to add some dimension.

Would you like to see what is in the drawer?

Nine Christmassy Chocolates for all to eat :-)  I think I might even use this type of box to make some special gifts ;-)

Hope you have enjoyed your visit today :-)  I love this box :-)
