Today I’m going to show you something very different from what I had prepared.
Go figure! I’ve had my eye on this Christmas Fireplace from Simply Crafty Svgs for a long time. Ever since I saw it on the draft board among other designs and I instantly knew THAT was going to be a Christmas project.
So when this was released I got busy…..REALLY busy! Barely got home from the Gym today 😀
I’m totally in love with this cool giftbox. Especially because – well it’s a box but also because of the awesome fireplace that lits up by a LED tea light. Such a brilliant design!
I made mine with AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV Stack Red&White Christmas and Recollections Paper Pad Wood, Marble and Brass.
I also used a bit of vellum for the flames, that I colored with Distress Ink.
The wood logs are embossed with a wood grain embossing folder from Darice and the panels on the Mantel are embossed with an embossing folder from Sizzix.
All edges are inked with matching Distress Ink and I added small gems on the cute bows on the garland.
Finally I added a bit of Stickles on the fuzzy top of the Stockings.
I do think this is a keeper. If only I can find a spot for it 😀 Otherwise I may have to make this again in a downsized version.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I will show you the original intended piece another day soon.
