Back we go to Christmas and more snow!

Hi folks another late post for me today.  I've been shopping and out for lunch with my boy...stocking up for going back to school with sports wear etc...  Although I did manage to treat myself to a mighty fine new wooden spoon.  I know how to live life to the full!  It is a lovely spoon!
That's me back full of lunch and pockets empty so I'm going to have an hour in my craft room to recover.
This card is one of my favourites from my recent demonstration in Inverness....those of you who know me will know it is my favourite of all colours.

I have used Core-dinations card stock together with MME 12 days of Christmas.  The snowflake die is Create a flake 4 and the sentiment is by Kirsty Wiseman Many Greetings.  Bling and ribbon from my stash.

Did I mention that I LOVE this colour!  Ha!  Once or twice. 

This card is 5 x 10 1/2" in size and it has a 1/2" spine down the middle.  On the front of the card I have scored two inner squares, the outer 3/4" and then a further 1/2" in from that point.  The squares are then cut across the diagonal and folded back to make the frame.  I then attack a 3 1/2" square to the inner box and on the reverse inside the card to hide the workings.  Time to decorate!
I'm loving these box cards just now but you do need to post them in a box too to protect them. 

Right that is me off to do a little crafting, I have my Dad's birthday coming up so need to get my thinking cap on.  Have a great day, more tomorrow.  x

Yes I remember this one, and so lovely, thanks for your comment and I did have a better night last night. I would however need a sleep like the Sleeping Beauty in order to catch up with the sleep depravation. Kate x
