JustRite Challenge #063: Christmas

Greetings all!  Turns out I had another one of those Blue Bunny ice cream containers, and I used it to fill with my favorite Christmas treat:  nut crunch (from the Joy of Cooking cookbook).  I decorated the tub for Christmas since it's for a gift, and that qualifies for the JustRite #063 challenge.

Actually the challenge was for a Christmas card or tag, so I made the free-hanging tag for this gift as the focal point.  The tub was covered with white card stock that had been run through repeatedly with the Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Stamps were from the JustRite set Merry & Bright.  After stamping, the pieces were hand-trimmed and colored  with Copic markers.  The sentiment was stamped on a round die cut which was shaded with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink, then popped up on a pop dot.  The seam binding was dyed to match.

I forgot to take a photo of the nut crunch inside but there really is some in there (of course, not every bit of the batch made its way into the bin).  Here's a closeup of the tag.  It's hard to see the glitter and gold paint--it looks much nicer in person!

That's all for now--thanks for looking and have a nice day!
