Boxed Branch

 Good morning!  One more box idea for you!  Use the rectangle from Beyond Baskets 2 to create a miniature scene, it is just perfect for this branch from Let it Snow and the fact that branch goes outside of the frame just makes it all the more interesting.  I stamped the box first in Moonlit Fog, the branch at the corner (clear stamps make this a snap!) in Dark Chocolate, and then add joy and the berries in Cherry Red.  I decided to emboss two rectangles from Spellbinder Matting Basics A to fill up the space and add drama.  Finally I traced the deep embossed grooves only and hit each of the berries with a Sakura Stardust pen.
Add one rhinestone to the O!  Actually, I was perfectly fine with this card with no glitter, just very white and pristine (see below), but I went ahead and blinged it up and photographed for to show you different options!
 
Have a terrific day!  Hope this inspired!  Stamp with me!  Your holiday cards will be done in no time! (I had coffee this morning which is very rare for me.  Hence the extra energy, if you picked up on that.  Just sayin'!)

Fabulous design Melanie. I love the deep embossing boxes / technique. I got to give that a try! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop my blog and gallery. Have a blessed week! Melisa
