I ♥ Promarkers - Snowmen & Snowflakes



What a wintry week of grim stormy weather we have had up here!!  tut! :)  Anyway, I hope everyone else is having a smashing week so far?

Now todays new challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers is 'Snowmen & Snowflakes' and we are sponsored this week by Robyns Fetish.

I decided on making a few gift boxes, and spent several happy hours digi-die cutting, die cutting and punching on these.  The two smaller boxes are a perfect fit for 4 Yankee Candle T-Lights (I LOVE Yankee Candles!) and all boxes are 1 inch deep, and edged with MS deep snowflake  border.  The wintry tree background is the negative from a digi-die design and the actual tree is stuck on the bottom. :)  The Joy and Noel tags were also done on the digi-cutter and the smaller snowflakes are just the waste from the MS PATP on the larger box.  It sounds a lot more effort than it took, as they just kind of evolved - trust me! ;) .......but it was easier to do them all in one go.

I am entering these in the below competitions:

Crafty Catz - Snowmen
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Christmas
Stamptacular Sunday - Anything Christmas
Dream Valley - Sparkle
The Ribbon Reel - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
ABC Challenge - D is for Dazzle - I have also used snow white glitter card behind the trees.

Thanks so much for popping by my blog today, and I will have another card to share tomorrow

Love your use of the negatives & the "waste". Well - this really enforces the truth of snowflakes being disassembled snowmen! Delightful.
