Santa Fox

Happy Tuesday KaDoodle Bug fans, Cathy here to share a fun Christmas card I made using one KaDoodle Bug Designs FREEBIE files from last week.  Santa Fox was way too cute not to create a card with.

I used some of the Stampin Up Papers and some ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, stamps from Close to My Heart and Tim Holtz distress inks.  The adhesives of choice was Helmar Craft Glue and Helmar fabric Glue
I hope you like this card and it will inspire you to create something with a KaDoodle Bug Designs file.
Have a Great holiday~ Cathy

Christmas treat box with Helmar

Happy Wednesday crafty friends.  Cathy here today posting for Helmar...I want to share with you a Chipboard container I decorated for the Holidays...

To start off... Here are 2 of the adhesives I will be using as well as the plain chipboard container..

Here are more of the products used..Craftwork Cards Christmas Cheer Ultimate Collection 

I started out by cutting some pattered paper to fit around the box and on the top of the lid..

The next step is to use the Helmar Craft Glue to hold the pattern paper on..

as well as the cover paper.

Below I used the Tim Holtz Distress ink ~ Vintage Photo, to ink around the edges to give it aged look.

One of my favorite adhesives I used next to glue on the lace ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon is Helmar Fabric Glue

next thing to do was use my Cricut cutting machine and cut out the KaDoodle Bug Designs SVG file!  Christmas Angel Bear and change it out a bit to work with this christmas box.  After each piece was cut, I inked the edges with  Tim Holtz Distress Ink... Rusty Hinge, and put pieces together with Helmar Craft Glue

To embellish I used Helmar Zap Dots to add dimension to the round pop out card stock pieces

Here is the project assembled..  Of course I had to add something for my sweet tooth!!

Here is the box closed...

Here is a side view...

I hope you enjoyed todays' project and that I have inspired you to get your craft on!!
Have a great crafty week!
Your crafty friend..Cathy
