Cute Snow Friends

For Digi Choosday today I've used Cute Snow Friends from Polkadoodles to make a sleeve wrap for my handcrafted advent calendar.  The pink gingham papers are actually from a freebie Easter paper pack but I think gingham can be used in any season, and I do like pink at Christmas!  

Here's the sleeve on the gatefold box that I've made using quite stiff mountboard...

... and here's the inside with some of the boxes which I cut with my silhouette, all perfectly sized for a small chcolate treat!

This is the sleeve on its own.  The ribbon is a gorgeous double sided satin (the other side is chocolate brown colour) but I did end up sticking it down a bit after I took this picture, because I noticed it was a little loose.  The join is hidden underneath the image.

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Bear: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
  • Puppy: Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Scarves: Abandoned Coral, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
  • Sky: Weathered Wood
  • Penguin: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting
