Jingle Belles : Lonely This Christmas

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog today!!! I nearly missed this week's prompt at Jingle Belles !!! Tomorrow is the deadline and I'm just getting my card done tonight!!! Stef and Lauren have partnered up with a cool  team, The Order of the Opus Gluei for this challenge so go check it out , but ,before you go , here's my card for this week's challenge. All we need to do is make a card ( your imagination is the limit!!!) and just so it won't be lonely we can make a tag, giftcard holder, box,etc, etc... to go along with it.

I haven't made a card with transparency sheets in so long but I had this dp that was strips of these cool snowman designs and winter-y  sayings and since it is part of my older Xmas dp stash , I decided to put it to  good use for this challenge.  I made the box with my Cricut and Wrap It Up cartridge. For my card I stamped  a few red and white snowflakes on the front and inside of the card and added mini rhinestones to random snowflakes. The sentiment is on the inside only. The giftbox is stamped in snowflakes and I used more of the dp for the band, along with a piece of red cs, punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.
 Now I have a card and matching giftbox all ready to use this December!!  Yay!!!

Thanks for stopping by .... see you next time!!!
