Vintage Chritmas with Holiday Frame and Surprise Box

Hello Stampers Friends
  I survived all my class this past month without a craft room in order :) Last night was my last class of the year. Many time I thought I would have to cancel but I manage to found what I needed. So now that I don't have class till January I will catch up on video and NEW samples. I don't know about YOU but I'm sick of making Christmas card I just can't wait to make something else. For the rest of the week I will still show Christmas card cause I have a bunch that I didn't share yet plus I don't have time to create new one but soon Christmas is over I will have fresh ideas. Today card is a little like Faux Patina but this time I use Early Espresso Core'dination paper with Holiday Frame sand the heck out of it then sponge Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke then dab a little versamark emboss with gold powder. I have the Video on Faux Patina HERE this card is the same technique but with the core'dination paper and different colors. This would make a lovely Birthday card too just change the greeting. Well my friends after so many request for the surprise box I made the quick instruction but I still gona make the video after the new Year. Just scroll down to get my quick instruction. Okay off the bed so I can start playing tomorrow in between unpacking. I didn't do nothing yesterday but having fun with the stampers here at the class. I will miss having them over 2 to 3 times a week but I will have time to create and spend time with the Family for the Holiday!
If you didn't check the Clerance rack this past week take a minutes to see all the new discounted items. LOTS and LOTS of them at a great deal some up to 80% dicounted. CLICK HERE to view and shop  Have a great day my Friends.
 Here after so many request for the instruction for the box here a quick one. I will make one after Christmas perfect for Valentin or Birthday gift. 

For the top use a 6 x 6 piece of card stock score at 15/16 (this is the first line before the 1 inch mark)  all around, Snip the side on the same direction see picture fold and glue the tab.
For the box 12 x 12 card stock score both side at 4 and 8 cut out the 4 corner and fold up Voila You have your surprise box. If you choose to add some DSP cute all your square at 3-7/8 I will have the video fist part of the new year. Have a great day.
