CSAYL - Resist The Temptation

Okay, time for another Christmas challenge over at CSAYL and this week is a tough one. Create a card or project with absolutely no stamping!! The challenge is sponsored by A Perfect Presentation and the winner receives a free template of their choice:

The good thing about this for me as it forced me to reach into my stash of rubons and ribbon that I rarely use now and I am happy with the result even though I missed my trusty stamps!

I worked again with the Uptown Takeout template, printing it onto Kraft cardstock. I used some Cristina Re papers to decorate and some pink ribbon from my stash to tie around the box. I used an old Christmas rubon with some white cardstock and then cut it with my 1 1/4" circle punch. I matted this on a Bashful Blue piece punched with my Scallop Circle punch. The edge of the scallop was blinged up with some blue rhinestones and then this was all added to the front of the box with dimensionals.

I punched two small holes through the top with my Crop A Dile and tied more pink ribbon through to hold it together. I used another rubon for my tag with white cardstock and then handcut this out and punched a tiny hole. Some twine was thread through  and around the pink ribbon.

Not your usual Christmas colours but I really loved the pinks and Kraft together and guess the bling makes it look a little more Christmassy.

 Now hop on over to the CSAYL blog to see the rest of the girls' creations and link up your entry for a chance to win!! Only 8 more Christmas challenges to go!!
