The Spot Challenge #140 – Holiday Throwdown – Don’t Stop Believin’ Card and Box. I don’t know about you, but ‘Throwdown’ is not a word I use often, so I had to ask the other Design Team Members what this was all about. I gather it is basically ‘over the top’, so I have gone a little mad with Designer Deries Paper, layers and a gift box. As it happens, everything I used from the Mini Catalogue is in the Sale!! This means you can buy them AND save money.
I have not used the Father Christmas image enough this year, so I may have to do something about that. Especially as it fits so well into the Celebration Dies. It is such a simple image to colour, although it may not look that simple, it really is. The papers have two reds and two greens in, but today I chose to go down the Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler route for the colours, so pulled my Cherry Cobbler Blends for Santa’s suite and hat.
I layered some of the Designer Series Paper behind the label and as a mat, with a Cherry Cobbler card base and a Shaded Spruce layer. I added some of the wonderfully wide Shaded Spruce Ribbon behind the die cuts as a finishing touch.
To show just how versatile the dies are, I decided I wanted to make a box to go with the card. I used the largest of the dies to make the box (see today’s Facebook Live for how to make that!), paired with Shaded Spruce card and the very last of the ribbon. Together the card and the box make such a great gift for someone. The box is large enough to hold a surprising amount.
