Gift box and tag

The current Tuesday challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge  is to make elements used in gift wrapping. 

I pulled out my trusty Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cart for this challenge.  I found a box and used the window option.  I wanted a fun Christmas design on the outside, but the pattern paper I have isn’t thick.  So, I pulled out my colored card stock and cut the box twice: once in the red DCWV cardstock and once in the Cloud 9 pattern paper.  Then I adhered them together before scoring. 

Next, I colored and Stickled (I think I just made up a word) an Inkadinkado ornament stamp, which I then placed in the window of the box.  Using some festive ribbon and berries I made a topper for the card.

I also decided to make a tag.  I wanted to use the Peachy Keen frog stamp on the box, but the window wasn’t big enough so I used him on the tag instead.  Using my #14 Nestie labels and the patterned paper from the box, I cut out a medium-large size label.  Then I cut out a medium-small size cream-colored label to put in the center.  Next, I stamped my frog, colored him with my Copics and cut him out.  Using  my Joys of the Season Cricut cart, I cut out a hat for my frog to wear.  I using white embossing powder and Picket Fence Stickles for the white areas, and Xmas red for the trimmings, on the hat.  Finally, I attached the hat and popped up the frog.

I really like the way it turned out!

Thanks for your kind comments and feedback.
