Randy’s Christmas Box Card

Randy knows how to apply the pressure. As he saw me making Drew’s Book Card he said his has to be an even better project!!! I had an idea in the back of my mind. When I was looking through the “Chocolate Dreams” Magnolia Ink magazine I saw two projects that instead of the book used a box. As my idea developed the box was perfect for what I wanted to do. I used the older Mistletoe Tilda. I have never used her and thought she was so cute.
