I love the chilly weather when I can wear thick socks and comfy scarves and put a crock pot of soup on to be ready for supper. What about you?
Do you ever get into a pattern where you want to work with certain colors, stamps or techniques? Right now apparently I’m stuck on box cards.

I guess I stayed away from them thinking they would be complicated but amazingly enough they are quite simple. After I made the penguin card I kept thinking the Stampin Up Flurry of Wishes would be perfect for a festive box card for the holidays. I’m sure the recipient would love to receive such a beautiful card to display through the holidays. My children can’t seem to keep their hands off them.
The color combo I chose was Pool Party and Tip Top Taupe. Initially I was planning to use Soft Suede but liked the lighter feel of the Tip Top Taupe.

I used the following products on this card:
