Winter Wonderland

We have a nice, easy 'Christmas' challenge for you at Totally Papercrafts this week.
The lovely Sarah is our host - pop over to her blog and check out her amazing Christmas Cake. If you leave her a comment she will send you a piece of cake in the post!! 
Ha ha! Okay, I lied, she won't be sending out any cake. Even though I begged!! :-)) 
But I'm sure she'd love a comment :-)

Right, enough chit chat - I have loads of pics to show you, good luck on making it to the end!

 I made an easel card, plus box, for my Mum & Dad.

They don't 'do' cute - so I was really pleased to find these pre-coloured, die cuts from Lili of The Valley.
I stuck some strips around the image that I had border punched, then,  because the corners don't really match, I covered each one with an embellie.

All I added to the image was a liberal sprinkling of Glamour Dust.
Do you see the house with the red door - that's mine! 
I wish :-)

The easel is held in place with a foam backed strip - and the banner is also' popped up'

 I made a simple box, decorated with deep blue ribbon and a little tag.

Did you make it to the end? :-)
Don't forget to head to the main blog and check out the brilliant work of the DT.
