Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! just checking in to share a little project I made today
for the TSTR.  The theme this week is
'Sweet Shabby Christmas'
and it has the most gorgeous inspiration photo!!!
 
they are sooo me, I could have these 3 little darlings on my bedside table to wake up every 
Christmas morning in a shabby, pastel, sweet mood!
adorable....
So you know how much pink inspires me and if it also need some glitter and shimmer
the happier I am!
I decided to cut the new Spellbinders Christmas tree in a satin pink cardstock
and then trim it like there's no tomorrow.
I also used Tim Holtz banner die to stamp and emboss in silver my Christmas sentiment
I just love how shabby it looks, of course some distress inking makes it stand out.
 
here's a closer look of how the front opens up!

Since the final piece of my tree made it so special
I decided to make it into a box.
Using My scoreboard I made a giant matchbox to open from the front.
I used a Melissa Frances tinsel trim for my pull knot.
It's home to a fantastic inspirational book:
"Everyday Comfort"
spiritual reflections for women



 
The box was made out of shimmer cardstock in pink, layered with glitter cardstock in a silver hue
and then topped with the card base in white.
Now if they made some mercury glass so Icould trim my paper tree...
 
I hope you have enjoyed my creation
as much as I did creating it!!!
 
Hugs
