Christmas in July at Tuesday Throwdown

This week at Tuesday Throwdown #56,  we are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and have been given these adorable images to use. Christmas cards are my favorite to make so I had no trouble getting this put together. I decided to make some 3 x 3 note cards and put them in the little box I made using a Sizzix Scoreboards Die. It is a box w/scallop flap and flowers. I didn't use the flowers and added a snowflake instead. Or, you could use these as gift tags by just adding an eyelet and stringing some ribbon through in the top, left corner. They would be adorable hanging on a gift package with your 'to' and 'from' inside.
I did an out of the box on the one with the long, green ribbon and added stars, fir, corners on the others after coloring with Copics and putting together.

My recipe is below. We hope you'll join Tuesday Throwdown this week so we can see your Christmas creations.

Benzi these are absolutely adorable and I just love, love, love that cute box they are held in. I too love to make Christmas cards. I am going to have to join in some of the challenges soon. I should be caught up by the end of the week on everything I am hoping. You have inspired me to get out my Christmas stamps!!!

Hello Benzi! I've missed being here on your blog. :) I can't remember if I congratulated you on being a DT for Tuesday Throwdown, so I'm going to do it here: CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so proud of you. It seems like only a couple of weeks ago that we were discussing how to get a blog up and running, and now look at you! Two DTs, Flourishes Guest DT and many wins from challenge blogs. That's my Benzi!!
