A favourite shaped card for Christmas

As the year is quickly slipping away, I am trying to get a few Christmas cards made along the way so that I have some home made creations for a few special people. The new challenge at Polkadoodles Challenge blog using a favourite shaped card was the perfect opportunity to make a box card- I used several papers and lots of the delightful pre- coloured images from the Work and Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection. It is available as an instant download or as a CD. Fantastic value too! Just click on the link.

My box card uses a Santa, sleigh and present digi- all precoloured on the disc (these are also available as outlines for you to olour in your own way on the disc).
I resized the images in Word and made the sets of presents two different sizes so that I could place one stack behind the other to look like a huge cache!
THe sentiment was mounted using foam tape- I like to lift them off the base card so that they are not too hidden by bows and embellishments. 
Bling, a bow, some red Bazzill and a little distress ink were all I needed to add from my stash- everything else was from Workand Play 5. Do pop over to the shop and check it out- if Christmas is not your thing there are so many other collections to choose from.
Thanks for stopping by, Jackie x
