Christmas House Gift Box



I've been stuck in a "no creativity" zone for a few days. Thank goodness it ended with this house that is also a gift box. The roof opens to reveal your gift for your special someone.

I had so much fun using brayers to make the colorful Christmas Tree shown in my Nov. 10 post that I used them again for this house. The house starts with Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the Baroque Motifs swirl with Kiwi Kiss and the small flower from Season of Joy with Rose Red. I then brayered on Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, and Rose Red. The Santa peeking out the door comes from Deer Friends. To create the look of glass in the window, I sponged Rose Red on our vellum cardstock to allow you to "look through" the window.

The roof is from Stampin' Up's exclusive Top Note die. I created the template for the box. It is a variation of the Top Note Santa box shown in the Oct. 13 post. If you would like me to put together a template, please leave a comment and I'll follow up after the Thanksgiving holiday.
