Pillow Box with Santa Image and Santa with his Dog (A Christmas Scene Card)

7 Days in Bugaboo Catch The Bug Challenge Blog they have Holiday Chaos Challenge. The Day 3 challenge is Make a Gift/Gift Holder

I printed the Bugaboo Image and colored this sweet Santa with Akashiya SAI watercolor marker. I took my DIES and made this pillow box. I added the ribbon and die cutting the green holly leafs. Then added 4 sequin in red as berry.

Lovely challenges I love to join with this card are:

Bugaboo Catch The Bug Holiday Chaos:

613 Avenue Challenge #204: Anything Goes Optional Christmas/Winter

DLART December Linky Challenge: Anything Goes

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge 32: Anything Goes (3/3)

Winter Wonderland: Traditional Christmas Colours - Red and Green

Brown Sugar #273: Anything But a Card

AAA Cards CAS Game #104: Christmas


I also made this card:

I took my old stamp (the Santa one) I bought last year and stamped these Images. I colored with Akashiya SAI watercolor marker. Then I fussy cut it self. First my card looks like this, I think its a bit boring card right, so I trimmed the edge of that card after I cut a bit and took a brown/kraft paper that I embossed already.

Another photo of my card, I choose that DP cause I imagine a wallpaper (dots) and the floor (stripes) in blue :) hope it is not so much color and too much busy :) I am not using DP too much normally I made my DP self :) (if you know me for long time)

Challenges for my second card are:

1. Retro Rubber Challenge #77: Christmas

2. Tuesday Throwdown #371: Christmas Scene

3. Uniko Challenge #44: Christmas

4. Glitter `N`Sparkle #268: Anything Goes

5. HLS December Watercolour Challenge: Anything Goes

6. Stempelgarten Challenge #68: Anything Goes/Alles geht

Thanks for looking and leaving me some love, wishing you happy Tuesday :)

  4. Monika, that pillow box is gorgeous. And your card is also. Thanks for joining us at the Holiday Chaos 2017 Gift/Gift Holder Challenge, Lisa Lynn GDT.

  5. I've got a pillow box punch, but like tags, these boxes are a bit tricky for me to decorate. I love that hollies and berries detail. Beautiful and cute!
    As for your second card it's so fun to see you use DP, and in a clever way too, to make wallpaper and floor. Super design!

  6. I've never made a pillow box but you DO tempt me to try my hand at it. Your box is darling and would be perfect for those gift cards. I loved your second card too. Thanks for joining in the fun over on the Catch The Bug blog. Good luck completing the Christmas Chaos Challenge!
