Santa Treat Box

I realize I'm a day late in posting my final Christmas in July project, but what can I say? Sometimes I'm slow but I always get there.

This cute little treat box was found over at My Scrap Chick and one of the things that I LOVE about her files is that she tells you in the file name what size to cut the project.  Pure genius if you ask me.  That way I'm not left guessing what size my layers, etc. need to be in order to fit correctly.  So thank you My Scrap Chick and Cricut for creating the Explore so that I can finally cut all these wonderful SVG files.

Back to my project.  I wanted a bit of texture to help break up all the white trim and such so I embossed Santa's beard and mustache.  The "fur" trim pieces to Santa's outfit were coated with some Martha Stewart Carrara Marble glitter.  Ink up the edges a little, put it all together and add some yummy chocolate with sentiments stamped from Cardz TV Stamps Very Merry.

Now to go enter this in to the following challenges before they end:


UPDATE:  My treat box was chosen as a showcase winner for this challenge at Die Cuttin Divas.
