A Quick Project With the Help of a Pre-Cut Box!

Two simple projects today, a gift box and a card to go along!

CCM CardBox

The box is from Creative Cuts and More, a Tuck Top Cube Box. It comes die cut and scored, all you have to do is decorate it!
I used the new set, Sacred Season, from Our Daily Bread designs, embossed in gold…both for the pine bough and sentiments.
I embossed the box first with Holly Ribbons, the band with Snow Dots.

It’s colored with Copics then I added “snow” with a Marvy Snow Marker.
I partially cut the window with ODBD Elegant Ovals by using my Cuttlebug (so I could see where to stop) and turning it several times until I got ‘close’ to the pine bough. I finished any cutting with a craft knife.

A bow done on the Bow Easy popped at the bottom, and it’s done! Easy peasy!

I hope I’ve inspired you today!

Thanks for stopping!

Stunning! Love all the texture & those beautiful pine bows & pine cone. The snow is perty as a picture. I'm really starting to get in the mood for Christmas now. :o)

Beautiful card and box, Dawn! I love the pine cone and bows on both. I'm always amazed at the texture of your cards. The dry embossing and snow pen really take the card and box to a new level. TFS!
