Treat Box

I made this treat box for the Karen's Doodles Netherlands Doodle Diva challenge. I used the new freebie from Karen's Doodles called Puffin Christmas. The base of the box is red. I embossed the white cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and backed it in hunter green cardstock. I backed a red paper heart doily in hunter green cardstock and added it to the left back corner of the box. I punched the sentiment out using a 1 3/8" circle punch. I backed it in red and then in white. I then punched out a 2" scalloped circle out of hunter green and backed it in white. Then added it to the heart.


I then added the image to the bottom right corner. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I punched snowflakes using two different sized Martha Stewart punches. I punched the larger in red and the smaller in white. Added the white to the red and then added a red gemstone to the center. I added one on each side of the box, one to the lower left corner and one to the upper right corner.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
