Scrapbook Pal Holiday Blog HOP!




Welcome to the holiday Scrapbook Pal blog hop!! One lucky hopper will win a Cricut cartridge of their choosing from Scrapbook Pal just by commenting on each DT members blog and finishing up by commenting on the Scrapbook Pal blog. Did you know Scrapbook Pal offers free shipping on orders just $25 or more! Plus they have great customer service and quick shipping times:)
I love working with all the different Cricut cartridges out there and for my holiday project I decided to make a votive candle box, stamped candles and a matching card. I got to play with the brand new Winter Lace cartridge which is chalk full of gorgeous snowflakes! Here's instructions on how I made my gift ensamble.
CANDLE BOX:
*To make box you'll need two sheet of heavy cardstock. Cut one at 4 1/8" X 8 1/2" (LID) and the other at 5 1/2" X 10" (BOTTOM) For the LID score on all sides at 3/4" and snip each of the four corners up to the score lines. For the BOTTOM scor on all sides at 1 1/2" and snip each of the four corners.
*If desired die cut a window in the LID using a Spellbinders die.
*Assemble box LID and BOTTOM, set aside.
BOX EMBELLISHMENTS
*Using Winter Lace Cricut cartridge cut accent 3 at 2 1/4" and at 3" and again two times at 1 3/4".
*Layer the two bigger snowflakes together and adhere with foam tape. Adhere to box top.
*Arrange smaller snowflakes on opposite side of box lid and adhere.
*Using Joys of the Season cartridge cut the bird from page 35 at 2 1/2". Emboss bird with Damask embossing folder. Adhere.
CARD
*Using Winter Lace cut accent 6 at 3 1/2". Cut accent 3 at 2 1/2" and layer the two snowflakes together.
* Cut bird from Joys of the Season on page 35 at 2 1/2". Emboss with Damask folder.
*Emboss card base with Swiss Dots embossing folder.
*Finish all embellishments with rhinestones and Frosted Lace Stickles.
