Christmas in July -Challenge #19

Celebrate Christmas in July with us at Fantabulous Cricut

Challenge #19
Christmas in July:
Create a Christmas theme project, perhaps something to get ready for the upcoming holiday.

I created a gift package box using 12 x 12 cardstock, this box measures approx. 8" x 2".
The cricut cartridges that I used are Geroge and Basic Shapes, A Child's Year and Very Merry Tags.

I used my Cricut Design Studio, and George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut out a window in my 12 x 12 patterned paper, then cut a brown rectangle that was just a tad bit smaller then the window. The kids from A Child's year pg. 57 fit inside the window.
Each of the 12" x 12" cardstock papers were scored at 2" from each edge.
I used a clear piece of plastic for the window.

The tree tag cut from Very Merry Tags cartridge was cut approx. 3" I added clear embossing powder to the top green layer to give is some shine.
