Merry Christmas Card Box

Good morning everyone.
This creation was originally supposed to be my post for Stamping Sensations
Guest Designer spot due to winning their June challenge (wooohooo go me)
HOWEVER dummy that I am created this and it wasn't until I had taken
the photos that I suddenly noticed it wouldn't be any good.
Why? Because Stamping Sensations as the name suggests is a
stamping blog *doh* I had been so excited to use my prize of the
Tonic Studios full set of  Pretoria Duo dies that I completely
 forgot to use a stamp *slaps head*.
For anyone who would like to try the Card box the tutorial
can be found here on youtube.
The papers are from my Christmas stash, I cut and inked all the
edges using a sponge and Promarkers Forest green and pear green.
I assembled the box as per the tutorial and then added my matted
paper layers.
Added all the die cuts and poinsettia corsage and lots and lots of
fine gold glitter dust.
Inside the box I have just added some sweets I had for the photo
but these will be removed and chocolate added when I give it as a gift :)
Dies used ..
Tonic Studios - Pretoria Duo Caps A-N and O-Z
Spellbinders - S4-462 Labels 39
Tattered Lace - Sparkles
