We also have a new stamp set with a truck and tree image!  
Oh, how fun it would be to create with the old fashioned truck!  And,
so many possibilities to tuck an image in the back of the truck!  It's
time for tree decorating and fun festivities!  I will be using the truck
stamp set on my next project, which will be on 12-17-18.

Here is my first project using the Sweet Cuts-Treat Box.

For my little vintage house, I covered the treat box with felt.  The scalloped roof was made using Stand Add-on:  Sweet Treats.  The door was die cut using Treat Box Add-on:  Home&Garden.  The wreath and candy canes were made using Planner Series-Happy Holidays.  Star gems were applied to the wreath.  Pearls were applied to the candy canes.  Ribbon(Robin Egg and Bubblegum) with a button applied at the top of the box.  Mica Flakes, button, and pom pom trim to finish the vintage house.  I'm entering my house project over at Chouxchoux Paper Art.

Next up, a gingerbread felt ornament card...

For my gingerbread card, I started with a white card base and paired it with aqua paper from MME.  The next panel was embossed with a snowflake folder from SU.  The felt gingerbread was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Sugar and Spice.  The gingerbread man was die cut twice and a blanket stitch was used for the two layers.  Frosting ribbon and pearl cotton to make a bow.  Pearls were added for interest.  The sentiment and small ginger is from the set Planner Series:  Happy Holidays.  Felt scalloped borders were made using Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  Mica flakes for the finishing touch.  The gingerbread man can then be taken off and used for an ornament for the tree.  A card with an ornament...two gifts in one!
