Festival of Trees for World Card Making Day

As promised, I'm sharing more Christmas projects using the Festival of Trees bundle. We made these at my World Card Making Day event on October 4th... & what an extra special day it was. A very dear friend just returned home to Aus after a long time overseas & surprised me by joining the class. Thank goodness my class lovelies who came are awesome cardmakers, as I was more than a little emotional & distracted at seeing her after so long. Anyway, in between hugs, much chatter & delicious treats we made this card...
I saw this fabulous card by Kimberly Van Diepen in the week before the class & just loved it, so made my own variation. Thanks so much for the inspiration Kimberly. I carried the tree theme to the inside & used the great sentiments from the Wondrous Wreath set.

Scalloped Tag Topper Box
I like to surprise my class gals with little extras, so we also made this surprise matching box...
This was a very last minute addition after I saw this great box tutorial by Simone Bartrum on my Pinterest travels. I followed the tute measurements exactly & decorated the top to match the card. Here is how it looks open. Perfect for a tealight candle, choccie treat, jewellery & lots more.

I think everyone enjoyed making their projects & I certainly loved spending the afternoon with them too. Thanks very much for visiting today & hope you like the projects. If you have any questions or just want to say hi, just leave me a comment.
Inky wishes, Di

Love both of them Di! Love the blue/brown tones in your card and the box is super cute. I haven't seen that design before - love the lid especially! xxx

I would love for you to do a video or at least a tutorial on the box.
