I have been working on items to sell at our Christmas Craft Fair in November. I paired the Card in a Box with Sizzix 3D Christmas tree die. I love how it came out and it stills closes for mail. The white tree is done in Gold accents. I did use an embossing folder to create the swirls on the tree.
A few more pictures below show that I decorated the side panels as well as adding some words to the top panels.
Here are some trees done with green cardstock. I had a hard time getting good pictures due to the lighting. It's early here and the sun hasn't brought in much light so I used my camera flash to help.
I have had this tree die for awhile. It was given to me by a friend who was frustrated at putting it together. It took me awhile to figure it out but after the first one - it wasn't too bad. I love that it will fold to close so it can be mailed.
Here is a picture of my work area. A little cluttered but you can see all the trees I have made. I didn't take a picture - but there is a sentiment on the back. It is tough to get in a Christmas frame of mind when the weather is about 70 degrees and beautiful out!! Hope it lasts for awhile!!
