Magnolia Advent Calendar Day #3: A Christmas Story in a Box

Hi Everyone,



Today I like to show you what I made for Magnolia Advent Calendar Day #3. I'm still in a mood for Tim Holtz configuration box, only this time, I use only the box without the small configurations. I also use a lot of A Christmas Story Collection 2012 stamps.

This is the inside of my Christmas Story Box, hope you like it as much as I do.



Stamps: Tilda with two little gifts, Jingle Jangle Tilda, Pixie Tilda, Tilda in the forest, Tilda on the roof, Tilda with long hair, Snowy roof and "A Merry Christmas" text (A Christmas Story 2012); Welcome to a Sweet Christmas BG (Sweet Christmas Dreams 2011); Smooth Fir (Merry Little Christmas 2010).

Embellishment: Snowflake transparencies - White (Maya Road); Ribbon from stash.

Coloring: Copic Marker

Other: DooHickey Lovely Fence, Paris Night, Antique lace; Embossing tinsel - Snowflake (Ranger), Frantage Shabby white embossing enamel (Stampendous); Configuration Box (Tim Holtz), I paint all the inside with white acrylic paint.

Please leave a comment for a chance to win a super duper yummy Magnolia Christmas Present sent directly from Magnolia Sweden, come back on the 5th to see if the winner is you.

Merry Christmas everyone, hope you have a good one this year, I know I will!

Big Christmas hugs from Indonesia,
Irene

  152. Irene, this box is absolutely beautiful. I have been sick on top of this being my first Christmas without my father and mother(she has Alzheimers) and I have so wanted to create more cards. I have just started the Magnolia stamps when I learned about why they have no mouth on them. Someone told me it was because they are angels and speak with their hearts. Mine melted and I want to collect more, use them and share my cards as my caring. I am a retired nurse due to health issues and miss it terribly. My cards help me to fill that void.
    Your advent card gives me hope. God bless you.
