I was kinda excited try this week's Michaels' Craft Some Holiday Magic challenge, but one of the mystery items is Chargers. Come on, chargers? As in decorative plates you put under your normal plates? Hmm, sounds like a giant chainstore is trying to empty out its backrooms. Too fancy for me.

So I was very happy to see the fun challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers:
card & matching gift. Oh boy, you should check out their DT projects. Incredible! But I just had to try my hand at the challenge.

I used a house box template I found months ago at Amy's SVGs and made a matching card by tracing it in SCAL. And of course I had to make windows and a doorway for the card. The "sentiment" is a stamp I've been saving for the holidays. I cut the lightbulbs on the box from the cardstock I used for the box and the card, and attached a bow to the top to make it easy to open.

I've been looking for a cute way to give friends and neighbors some marshmallows, and I think I found it!

Gift Box template: Amitup
Inspiration: Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge #34:
card & matching gift
Supplies: DCWV and Core'dinations cardstock, Offray ribbon, Michaels variegated craft cord & needle, ZipDry glue, Cricut personal cutter, SCAL2 software, stamp from gStudio
