Pink & Blue xmas card box set

Hi ya bloggers
 I had a very productive weekend and accomplished quite a few cards.  Here is a box set that I made following the challenges from AnnaBelle Stamps blog - boxes, Scrapbook Boutique - colours pink, blue, red and white and Card Patterns - sketch #145 which I rotated.

I actually made my box out of white pasteboard and thought that this would be the hard part of this set but it wasn't - I managed to make it in around 15mins!  The difficult part was trying to make everything fit on the small area on the lid based on the sketch!
It was a challenge and I enjoyed making and decorating the box and creating 4 identical cards.

Since getting back from cycling I have been shopping and replenishing my cardmaking supplies and I bought a few MFT dies and one of them was the christmas ornament set along with the stamps - and I have to say this is a fantastic christmas cardmaking set.
materials - Bazzill red devil, piglet card, white cardstock, white pasteboard; Echo Park 'everybody loves christmas' papers; MFT christmas ornaments and stamp set; Stazon blazing red, Versa Color versamark ink pads; White embossing powder; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Derivan crystallina kindy glitz; Kaisercraft pearls; Heidi Swapp trim, twinery twine.
