Merry Christmas 2014

           The idea came to me in the middle of the night, and I couldn't let it go, even though it was
           very close to Christmas-these cards were the ones calling out to me and had to get made!
     The images are digital stamps, which are great because they can be resized and flipped; perfect for this project!
Children playing in the snow card images are from: Make it Crafty stamps: lg pine tree, playing children bundle.
Elves at the North Pole card images are from: Make it Crafty stamps: elf bundle, little Christmas tree, and Kenny K Christmas accessory pack.
     I colored the images this time with watercolors on the regular paper I usually use with my Copic markers. These are fun boxes to make because they can fold flat for mailing! These were real popular earlier in the year and there are a lot of instructions out there, but the ones I used to fit into an A2-sized envelope are from kraftinkimmiestamps.blogspot.com-week-15. 
 Here's a few more pics:
  The most important thing to remember is to watch the overhang on the pieces, so it will still fit into the envelope. I fit to my envelope by always closing the box toward the right side, but as you can see below, it easily folds toward the left side also! (This way was way too wide to fit into the A2 envelope.)
  Here's some photos of the elf card:  
Thanks for looking, and I wish for you a joyous holiday season and a good 2015 ahead!
