FCCB Challenge # 240, Anything But A Card

Happy Holidays 

My project for today is a treat box.  I wanted it to look like a gingerbread house.
I used Sweet Tooth Boxes for my Cricut cartridge. 

Another view

I cut the box out of brown paper and then decorated it like a gingerbread house and used the gingerbread cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and made a couple.  I used some scraps of paper, ribbon and gems to make most of my decorations.  The paper I used is from DCWV "Evergreen".

 Hope you join us for this weeks challenge.
Link up your project at FCCB.

FCCB Challenge #239 Beyond Red and Green

Hi! everyone. It's the countdown to Christmas.  The challenge today at FCCB is to make a Christmas project using colors other than the tradtional red and green.  I've seen a lot of decorations this year in pinks and blues.  Here is my card for inspiration today.

I used the following supplies:
Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges-scallops
Cricut cartridge Kate's ABC's - JOY
Spellbinders embossing folder-background
Fiskers stamp set for sentiment
Modge Podge mold and melting stick for birds

I embossed my card and then punched three evenly spaced 1" holes.  I cut the scallops to fit exactly over the holes for a frame using silver metallic paper from DCWV.  I stamped my sentiment and then heat embossed it with silver.  I punched three 1" circles out of the same paper and placed inside my card for my letters.  Some white silver edged ribbon and two doves and I was finished.  The hardest part was matching the scallop frames to the circles.

Hope you will all join our challenge.  
Link up your projects using any colors but red and green.
