Willow with hot chocolate

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down or click here to see my card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Thanks!

Here is a project that I made for the Whiff of Joy Inspirations & Tutorial blog.

I made a box that uses the largest die in Spellbinders' Labels 17 set as the covers. Please click here to find out how it's made.

The image I used is Willow with hot chocolate and I stamped Hero Arts' gorgeous Large Fabric background on the box covers with VersaMark. The patterned paper that I used to mat the image is from the victoria collection by 7gypsies. The sentiment is from the Very Vintage Chrismas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Special thanks to the uber talented Beate Johns for her video here. I modified the box from that video to make mine. Thanks for all the inspirations, Beate! =)

Don't forget to hop over to the Whiff of Joy Inspirations & Tutorial blog to check out all the awesome tutorials by the DTs!

Have a lovely day! =)
