Gift Tag -Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Hello, It's Monday and time for another Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog challenge, this weeks theme is...
Trimming With a Tag
Use a tag somewhere on your project

I made a cute box using the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge the largest I could make it on my 12"x 12" mat, I love these little boxes, after folding the box I inked all over the edges. To go along with the challenge theme I made a tree gift tag, It can also be used as a Christmas tree ornament, fun idea huh? The beautiful crinkle ribbon is from Prairie Bird Boutique.
So what's in the box? Divinity, light and fluffy very sweet treat, this recipe has been passed down for a few generations, my husband is our holiday baker and makes many of our Christmas goodies.
Our Fantabulous Cricut sponsor this week is Core'dinations. If you haven't heard of them, they have the most amazing color core cardstock, which is great for sanding, to bring out a second or rather the core color that is beneath the first layer. Core'dinations have been so generous to let a few of the Fantabulous Cricut design team members create using this wonderful cardstock.
To learn more creative ideas using the Core'dinations cardstock click -HERE.
More details:
The trees were cut out using the Christmas Cheer cricut cartridge, I used two different trees in various sizes.
I love using my cuttlebug machine and my embossing folders with the Core'dinations cardstock, because then I can sand the embossed image to show that second color (core color).
The embossing folders that I used are (showing in the photo below from left to right) D'vine Swirl, Swiss Dots (for the star and second tree) Holly Ribbons, and Cindy Loo, there was a small square in one of the large cuttlebug folders that I placed the tree in to emboss it. After sanding I inked all the edges of the trees and star.
Thank you Cor'dinations for donating your lovely cardstock to Fantabulous Cricut design team members!
