A little gift box

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

It's time for another challenge over at Digital Tuesday. This week it was Lora's turn to challenge us and she chose the theme

Sparkling Christmas

Our sponsor this week is Fairy Dust Crafts and the owner generously let the Design Team choose an image to work with. I went with Sammy Snowman. I was going to make a "snowman soup" in a baggie, then over the weekend I saw this gorgeous gift box that Vicki made for snowman soup, so I decided to try something new and make one of those. Thanks so much for the inspiration Vicki!! I have also used Maria's tutorial.


Along with the hot chocolate and candy cane I will be adding some hershey's kisses to the gift, along with a Border's gift card and then wrap it in cellophane.

The image has been colored with my derwent coloursoft and baby oil. Papers are from Bo Bunny (I think), card stock from Basill. I embellished with some grosgrain ribbon, a snowflake button with some silver cord and of course I applied lots of stickles glitter to the image and the snowflakes on the designer paper. It's terrible you can hardly see the sparkles for our sparkling christmas challenge, but I promise, it is very sparkly in real life.

I would like to add this to a couple other challenges:


I hope you find some time to play along at digital tuesday this week. I know most of you are probably done with christmas cards for this year, but you could always use another little gift for someone, or maybe you could make a gift tag, scrapbook page... or you could just work ahead for next christmas.

Hope you all have a fantastic day! Mine will be super busy, as all my tuesdays are!

Ellie.

Hi Ellie

This is really cute already and is going to be extra special once you wrap it all in cellophane.

A beautiful make and a great Christmas gift.

Hope your Tuesday isn't "too" busy.

Love Jules xx

Ellie this is fabulous and right up my street I love anything like this and would definitely buy if I saw it.
Would be interested in finding out more about colouring with pencils and baby oil. Are these pencils watercolour based or wax?
Best wishes, Sharon
