Christmas box cards from SVG Cuts

I'm a little slow doing Christmas cards. 
These were fun to do.

The paper I used was DCWV Christmas Plaid, DCWV The Christmas Stack, American Crafts plain card stock, and The Paper studio for the Glitter paper.
To embellish them I used Stickles, Memento Inks, Glitter, and ribbon.

Thanksgiving Bread Basket in the Give Thanks bundle from Dreaming Tree

One last item in the Give Thanks Bundle from Dreaming Tree.

The Thanksgiving Bread Basket is a very sturdy basket. It was not that hard to make using the video tutorial provided by Leo on the product page on their website.

The paper is Recollections Garden Harvest and some cream colored cardstock I had on hand. I used Eggplant Mementos ink pad to ink the red patterned paper on the outside of the basket.

Zinnia Compote from the Give Thanks bundle from Dreaming Tree

Pictures do not do this projects justice.
I used the Midnight Berry package from DCWV and Green Glimmer paper from DCWV also. The green pattern paper is a paper pad from Recollections Signature called Garden Harvest. A friend gave me the Recollections pad years ago.
I inked the flowers with Memento Inks.

If you use the tutorial from Dreaming Tree to complete this project it is quite doable. It is found on their site on the link provided below.

SVG Cuts Game Day Marquee Signs bundle

My husband is a sports nut. When we were dating he told me he only liked BYU football. NOT true. He loves all sports, yes mostly BYU, but other teams as well.
I decided to make this collection for him from SVG Cuts. 
The paper plain card stock is from Recollections. Watch the sales at Joann's and Michaels where you can buy it at a good price. The patterned papers are from my stash and Sports Connection.
I inked a few of the edges with ink to give it dimension. 
The real string on the baseball is Memory Red String from DMC.
The Marquee lights are from Heidi Swapp. So far I have found them on Amazon and at Michaels. This is a link to the Amazon ones: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00USNO60O/ref=pd_sim_201_1?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00USNO60O&pd_rd_r=1KJCGT70HT39Y1N7811E&pd_rd_w=iBXx2&pd_rd_wg=dzWyI&psc=1&refRID=1KJCGT70HT39Y1N7811E. This is not an affiliate link. I included it only so you could see what lights were used.
I embossed the Football and Basketball with the Cuttlebug Bubbles embossing folder.

Give Thanks bundle from Dreaming Tree Hoot Owl Lantern

The minute I saw Leo's preview for this owl, I knew I had to make it. The paper I used was from DCWV called the Midnight Berry. I also used a Purple Glimmer paper from DCWV although you can't see it because it is under the panels.
I added purple, orange and gold sequins to the feathers and front of the owl.
I used gold Liquid Pearls around the eyes, on the top handle and on the gold trim near the bottom of the owl.
I added Diamond Stickles around its eyes and a few feathers and on the sides
I also inked the feathers that were not metallic.
The candle is one from dollar tree.
I embossed the feathers that were not metallic with embossing folders from Crafter's Companion called Basket Weave and Parquet. I also used one from Cuttlebug called Bubbles.
I raffled the bottoms of the feathers by wrapping them a tiny bit around a Chapstick container.

Watch the tutorial video on the product page that Leo made on how to put this together.
