Christmas gifts

I have 2 creations to share with you, both with Pollycraft images. I was so pleased to find I had been chosen as a Pollycraft favourite with my hubby's Christmas card. I have made a few gift boxes this Christmas using my Crafter's Companion Top Score. This is the first one I can share with you as it is for my Mum and she doesn't have a computer. The challenge at Pollycraft is White Christmas (only colour can be the image) or a Winter scene. I scored the top of the box with the Top Score. The circles were cut with Nesties and the top one embossed with a Cuttlebug bubbles folder. The Marianne die cut snowflakes were covered with glossy accents and diamond dust. What a messy job that was. I finished off with lots of glitter on the image, which was coloured with Promarkers, MS punched snowflakes and pearls.
Other challenges:

Charisma Christmas gift
The Crafty Pad Embossing
One Stop Craft Sassy Christmas
Totally Gorjuss Snow
Stamptacular Winter Wishes

The A5 card is for my Mum to give to her husband. Every time I see this image it makes me smile. Papers are DCWV from last year. The present is an Anita's topper. The sparkly strips are Papermania and I added some Sizzix cut holly leaves, card candy and ticket sentiments.
