Rustic Christmas Duo

This week I was looking over some of my older work, and saw that several years ago, I was doing more rustic style cards. I wanted to do another box project using the Stampin'Up! Gift Box Punch Board, so I pulled out the new Kraft Cardstock, Under the Tree DSP, Festival of Trees with coordinating punch , and my project was born.

I used the Kraft Cardstock not only for the box, but for the coordinating card and tags. The tags were distressed with Crumb Cake ink , except the one on the card. I already had that attached before my last minute decision {smile} that it would add more depth. As they say, the best laid plans of mice and men... or in this case, card maker!

The sides of the box are fairly plain. I used more Kraft paper that I embossed (retired EF) and a tree punched out of the Cherry Cobbler. I was originally going to use the olive twine on the card face, but I felt it was to bulky.

I will be posting this card and box over on Merry Monday #126 this week which I have not posted on before. Hopefully, it will fit the challenge of  the week making the sentiment the main focus. 

I hope you have a wonderful and crafty weekend.Mine will be fairly quiet, which I'm glad of.

Stay CRAFTY  my friends!
