Winter Star

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Sentimental Sundays challenge and the theme this week  is 'Dimensions'!   Challenge start date is Nov 4th, 2012. I used a Doodle Pantry  digital stamp set  called 'Winter Star'  This set contains coloured and outline images, digital papers and sentiments.   For this card I used the coloured image (printed the image twice and cut the second layer of the star out and 'popped' it up over-top of the first star).  Punched holes for the ribbon to go through it matching the ones punched in the box  and it becomes an overlap.The idea for this treat box came from my friend Dawn and was obtained  from the Splitcoast Stampers site and is called a 2-5-7-10 box.. Here is her beautiful treat box!

Card Details:Winter Star'.
Paper: Card stock  Stampin' Up 's  whisper white;  Designer paper ' Little Yellow Bicycle ' - the Sharon Ann Christmas Magic collection
