Christmas Card in a Box!

 I am having a blast making these Card in a Box Christmas cards!  We send out about 30 cards and this year I am making several different themes.  These are my Toy Soldiers! 



 I use a bunch of different stamps to construct these guys!  The hat is made from SU's tag punch.  I just cut it down to shape it into a tall hat.  I use the oval punch to add the detail to the hat.  You can see I use the tag punch for the body too.  The arms are from SU's slot punch...at least I think it's called that. 



 Here is another shot of the construction stage. 



These are my Angel Card in a Box!   Can you find the instructions on how to make these fun Cards on a previous post here on my blog in November.  The ideas are limitless!   Monica Gales's  video instructions are fabulous! 




 I love using the Memory Box butterfly for the Angel's wings!  I use my Bone Folder to give the wings a little curve. The body is from SU's blossom punch. ( I think that is what it's called)  I am working on a Manger scene right now that I saw on Pinterest.  I know my sister, Connie made one and I loved it!  Back to my studio to finish up!

  2. I am NUTS about both of these and have to make them. The angels will be perfect for the high school kids in my church to make for the elderly in retirement homes. Of course for next CHRISTmas. And I adore the nutcracker. Thank you so much for posting. Going to go Pin right now!
