Create a Card Christmas Range

Hello again ..... Crafters Companion are just about to launch their new range of the Create a Card Christmas dies .... Here is a sneak peek of a few of them ....

I made this decoration using an old Coffee Mate Tin (which my neighbour very kindly saves for me )  I cut out the Die  (The die I used for this is the CHRISTMAS VILLAGE Die) on some Core'dinations card and backed it using the Snowflake Acetate .... I painted the inside of the tin with Black Gesso ... I then marked and cut out a section of the Tin and used Red Line Tape to stick the Die cut to the tin over the opening .  I then decorated the rest of the outside of the tin with Christmas papers

 On the lid which was gold plastic  I coloured the whole thing using a black Sharpie pen.  I used the Die'sire Quilling range of dies to make the flowers on the top  ( Rose - Large and Small- and the Stamen Die ...) I also cut out some Ivy and Holly leaves using the Die'sire Range and glued these to the top of the lid using the Collalls 3D Glue (That stuff is AMAZING and I LOVE it)   I found a spray of pearls and also glued this under one of the flowers

Inside the tin I lined it with some Wadding fabric (which looks like snow) and added a LED T LIGHT which changes colours ..... I hope you agree with me that when lit it looks really cool ... but also looks good as a decoration during the day when the T Light is switched off .
