I love Christmas!

I'm welcoming in a new month (August---already!)
and a brand new monthly challenge blog called

Here's my very first entry into this fun challenge:

Yep! You know by now that I love box cards, so it seemed only fitting that I start out with one!

I made the basic box using Green cardstock and the Lawn Fawn scalloped box card die.
I used a pretty Christmas paper by BoBunny called Mistletoe
 to decorated the sides and flaps of my box. 
The Merry Christmas sentiment flap was made using a stamp and cut set from Hero Arts (Merry).

Next on to the fun part of choosing what cute things to put in the box!
I chose to use the Santa and reindeer from There She Goes- design by Torico.
I'm sad to say that the There She Goes website closed at the end of 2013,
so this stamp is no longer available. However, it will always remain one of my favorites!

The cute trees I used are from Sugar Pea Designs- It Moose be Christmas.  
I used Copic Markers to color everything:
Reindeer  :  E31, E33, E37
                                                            Reindeer Nose:   E27, E25
                                                            Trees:  YG25, G28 
                                                            Tree trunks:  E23, E25
                                                            Santa face:  E00, E11, R20
                                                            Santa suit: R14, R29, R89
                                                            Belt buckle: YR24

Hopefully by playing along with this blog every month, I'll get a good start on my 
Christmas cards for next year! Anyway, that's the plan!
