GOOD morning peeps!! Welcome to MCT September's Mini Release Blog Hop!  If you are arriving from the talented Kim's Blog then you are on the right path! If not, be sure to head back to Emma's Blog to start at the beginning of the hop! I'm sooooo excited to get to share my project with you today using the new set, All Around Goodies!!

You know I LOVE Pinterest! I am always on the look out for new ideas or techniques to try! I found this VIDEO the other day and knew I had to try it!! I absolutely love the way this turned out and you don't hear me say that often (most of the time I find fault in everything I do!) This is called a card box and it is SUPER easy to make!!  I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge for my deer and for my Christmas tree. For my deer's eye, I used PK-757 Wide Eyed and Bushy Tail. I was able to just use of of the eyes by masking the other one off with tape. I used some twine (more that my bestie sent me!) and a little red gem around his neck. I also inked him around the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo. I also used my white jellyroll pen to color his ears and tail. Last, I added some glossy accent to his eye. I used CTMH Liquid Applique on the Christmas Tree to look like snow! My "reindeer poop" is just some little round circles cut with my Gypsy (can't even remember now which cartridge I used) For the background, I used the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder and then lightly sanded over it. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from a older MCT set called, Gift Card Sentiments. I heat embossed using White Zing embossing powder onto kraft card stock. I then cut it in half and added to each side of the card!  Last, I used some white ribbon to tie around the card to keep it closed! I've NEVER been able to tie a bow that I feel is pretty. I bet I watched at least 14 videos on how to tie the perfect bow and I'm super pleased how this one came out (now if I could do it again that's very questionable hee hee) Now onto the fun part!! 
The inside...


This is what it looks like opened up!! I used MCT scallop and stitched circle dies to stamp the sentiment Reindeer Poop on. I then printed out the Reindeer Poop poem and printed onto regular copy paper. I glued both of these down. I then added a little bag of Raisinets to represent my poop! Here is a little closer of picture so you can see Emma's stamp and some of the poem.


Thanks for looking and next on the hop is Liz!
