Countdown to Christmas - Project #6
Polar Party Fancy Favor Box

Good morning and welcome to week 6 of Countdown to Christmas with Sandi & Friends! 

This week's project coordinates with last week's Polar Party card with the accent color still being red (nice, birght and fun, traditional holiday color)!  But not just any red....GLIMMER red!  The Glimmer Paper sparkles like diamonds --- BLING!!!!

And I've also added Dazzling Details again to the cute little penguins and the decorations on the center tree, as well as the snow fall at their feet!

This gift box features the cute penguins from Polar Party and the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Folder to add a soft, subtle texture to the box top area.


This week again I used Watercolor Pencils to color in the artwork. I did not use a Blender Pen this time to blend the coloring.  Next, I stamped and CUT OUT the trees and the two penguins. This is so I could layer then on top of one another (this is instead of using the Masking Technique) with Stampin' Dimensionals to add more dimension to the project.

Here is a close-up!

Hope you have a great week! Enjoy :D
