Away in a Manger

 I am finally finished making my Christmas Cards for this year!  I made a bunch of different scenes for my Card in Box cards.  I was inspired by my sister Connie's Manger card in a box.  I thought hers was really adorable!  You can see hers here-

I used burlap paper to decorate the top half of the box.  I have never used it before but it worked well with the Scor Tape.  The rest of the box is decorated with punch art! 



I made these Angels when I first started making my cards.  You can see them in a previous post but they were made with more of the gold paper.  I made the Angels below with more silver paper.  I loved the way they came out.  I hope you can see how they reflect the light.  I bought that paper on sale at Joann's!   I think the Manger scene and these Angels were my favorite!  Or maybe it was the Toy Soldier's..... They were all fun to make!





 I am going to start my Christmas wrapping which will probably take me right up until Christmas.  I know everyone will be busy with shopping, cooking, wrapping and enjoying family.  I want to wish you and yours  a Very Merry Christmas filled with love and laughter!  See you in the New Year!
