A Box of Trees

For the stash Challenge at 52CCT Deborah, our lovely hostess for April is going out in style, glittery style that is, as we want to see you Christmas projects with glitter. (don't you just love glitter!) We have all got some, I'm sure and once you've made your card the whole family will be sporting some in their hair, clothes etc, even the cat! Guaranteed! Well, that is what will happen in my house

After my twisted easel card, earlier in the month I got carried away with more complex card designs and, thanks to a workshop from my good friend and fellow teamie, Jacqueline, I came up with this. These cards in a box are everywhere on the blogs right now and they are really quite simple to make 

Mine is a glittery forest of Christmas trees in a box, which all fold flat for easy posting.

All the trees are dusted with glitter and one special tree in the middel(can you spot it?) is loaded with baubles and ornaments with a golden star on the top  (bling to you and me). The box is made from a single A4 sheet and I've added embossed facing panels to look like a forest in the snow.  I had so much fun making this, I'm going to make more.  Better late than never, I entering the challenge at Completely Christmas again, where Anything Goes.
 I already made another box card for Mothers Day, which I gave to my Mum (the original from the workshop) and I've seen some fabby Easter ones on the internet. There's more of these to come.!


  1. Love it! Your box card of Christmas trees is just brilliant - love all the pretty sparkle and the embossed panels too! Great work. I really must try to make a card like this!

  2. Oh nice job Louise! Love those sparkly trees. Still laughing at your comment on glitter in the hair. Love glitter - hate the mess :o) Hugs D

  5. Louise - this is a fabulous Christmas keepsake, and although I have seen these box cards now & again on blogger, I didn't realise they can be "flattened" for posting! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
