First of all, the card (right) measures 23cm x 19cm.  The brown layer is 21×16.5, white layer 20.5×16, brown layer 19.5×15 and finally the white embossed layer is 19×14.5. The embossing folder is Holiday Holly by Crafters Companion. I tore two strips of white card and one strip of brown card which I have put across the bottom of the card and trickled Brown Stickles along the top edges.  I brushed over the embossed layer with Distress Ink, Walnut Stain and then dabbed in some berries with Gold Sparkles Glitter Glue.  The Christmas trees are Marianne (reference LRO136) and the deer are also from Marianne, Rudolph (reference LRO179).  The holly drizzled along the “snow” at the bottom of the card is cut from Memory Box, Holly Vine die.  The brown leaves are Cheery Lynn Pine Branches.  I have tied some Jute string around the top of the card and then tied a couple of pieces of Cinnamon stick to this, then glued a small bell on top of the Pine Branches.  I then decorated the edges of the Christmas trees and the “berries” on the background with the Gold Sparkles.

The box (left) measures 24cm x 20cm.  The brown layer is 20×16, white layer 19.5×15.5, brown layer 15.5×12.5 and the embossed layer is 15×12.  I have used the same Crafters Companion embossing folder, Marianne Christmas Tree die and Cheery Lynn Pine Branches and Distress Ink.  The Merry Christmas is Cheery Lynn.  I have also used the Jute string and I glued on a couple of gold beads. All for now folks, hugs Annie xx
