Christmas at CRAFT

Good Morning and welcome to a new challenge over at CRAFT Challenge.
This week the theme of our challenge is Christmas
This week we have two very generous sponsors….

Rick St Dennis MFA                  DRS Designs
For my DT project this week I was lucky enough to use

‘Christmas Party hat’ from Rick St Dennis MFA

I love Rick St Dennis images because they are a joy to colour.
I decided to make a chocolate gift box after watching Sarah Davies on Hochanda at the weekend.
You can see her demonstrating how to make the project on You tube here
I used my Big Score which makes measuring scoring A3 card so much easier.




 and inside just enough room for two bars of chocolate...



I used 300 gsm centura pearl card and printed two designs from a Bearly Mine Christmas collection straight onto the card.
The beautiful image was coloured using Promarkers .
The dies were cut using Marianne dies.
The ribbon and chocolate bars are from my stash – the chocolate won’t be in my stash for long!
The poinsettia was cut and embossed using the free poinsettia die and folder that came with a magazine and then I used gilding wax and liquid pearls on it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges ……..
Southern Girls 2W,1E,C10 134 ANything Goes (W2 of 2)
