Christmas Projects for 2014

I wanted to post these before the year slips away.  These are the cards and gift card boxes I made this month:
I used Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks to create the sky and Shabby Shutters distress marker to color the trees, leaving most of them white.  The little guy is colored with Copics.  I used Stacey Yacula's 2 Forests and Birch (winter bunny) from Purple Onion Designs.  I only made a handful of these.  They each will get a banner coming from the bunny that will say something specific to the recipient.  The scalloped frame comes from the PTI MakeIt Market kit Shakers and Sprinkles.

I made gift boxes for my nieces and nephews using DCWV Winter Basics 6x6 pad and the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board.  I found out how to make boxes by watching Laura Bassen and used the Box Buster like she did.

I also made some with sentiments from a LOTV retired set to give to teachers and others.

I'm going to submit the card to Virginia's View Challenge #10 I know all I did was blend the distress inks, but it's hard to pass up a challenge from Virginia ; )
