Is it a box?

I've been gone from my crafts for over a week enjoying some outdoors fun in the north. Coming back home I found myself back in my crafts room with lots of energy and new ideas. This card's idea and instructions I got from this Russian site. I don't speak any Russian, but they have really good photos, and Google translates the rest :)

I really like the idea of this gift box / card. It's just the perfect size for small gifts. I can't wait to make one for my brother's baby who's due any day now.

Papers I used: Reminisce Autumn Harvest collection and Fancy Pants Designs BeLoved.

Mistletoe kisses

The card I made this weekend is something I have been thinking about for a good few months. I saw something similar to this somewhere online, so the idea is not completely original. The last push to make this card now, I got from the Art Impressions challenge, which this time is "Shake it off". I had thought not to participate this week, as I don't have any of the shaker stamps and I didn't think I'd come up with another idea either. Well, here we are, another challenge with my favourite stamps.

Stamps: Art Impressions In the tub
Art Impressions Dive in (I cut out the lady)
Bath tub and background papers are from Kaisercraft Christmas basecoat paper pad
I also coloured the edge of the card stock with Distress Ink ground espresso 
As usual, I couloured the stamped images with Distress Inks and Markers. 

The man with his mistletoe is attached with a homemade string. Might not be so elegant, but wobbles!  

I submit the card on two challenges:
Art Impressions "Shake it off" challenge and
Simon Says: Anything goes Wednesday challenge.
