Karen's Doodles Challenge 37 - Gift Box

This week our hostess, Nancy at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog and she has challenged us to make a

Gift Box


For my gift box, I used Karen's Doodles newest image set called Christmas Fireplace Set.  Using Photoshop Elements I combined the brick fireplace, stockings 7, 12 and 13, holly garland, three candles and framed them with the holly border.  I sized the image to fit my French Flair dies then printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Fireplace - E51, E53, E70
Fire - Y11, YR04, R27, Y17
Logs - E43
Grate - C4
Mantle and Floor - E55
Holly - G21, R27
Stockings - R27, G21
Dog - E42, R20, B12, R27
Cat - C3, R20, B12, R27
I airbrushed BG02 around the image. 


Finished size is 5 7/8" square.  Watch for a tutorial tomorrow explaining how I combined these images.  Be sure to visit  Karen's Doodles Challenge blog, the design team created some fantastic gift boxes.

Really like the picture. Did you have a die for the box, or use a box you already had? Edna
