Beat the Christmas Rush - June

It is time to join in with Sue's monthly Christmas card challenge, I like to combine challenges so this month my Christmas cards are also suitable for the card challenge on Scrapology - the theme this month is Card in a Box.

I hadn't made these before so watched a few videos and realised that I could save myself a lot of time with scoring and folding if I used my Stampin' Up milk carton die and cut off the top/spout part.  It worked really well and very quickly had assembled 6 cards which just needed decorating.

I used SU Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cardstock and ink and some scraps of SU Christmas paper - they are quite old and the leftovers from some classes that I had done on a retreat.  I embellished the boxes with a mixture of SU and Fiskars stamps punched out with SU, Woodware and Creative Memories punches.

Some of the individual boxes -

I stamped and punched so many embellishments that I have all this lot leftover - expect to see them appear on some other cards very soon!!

There is still time to take part as the challenge doesn't close until 15th July
