Frankenstein Candy Box

Today's project is a Frankenstein candy box. Isn't he cute! The box shown is made using a 12x12 sheet of card stock (I have also created smaller Frankenstein boxes using the Fancy Favor Die)scored at 4'' and 8'' on each side and the shaped into a box. Then I used various sized circle punches to make his eyes. Next I added a button for his nose, and I used a marker to draw his smile. I made his hair using a strip of basic black card stock and randomly punching with the star punch. Then I sprayed Silver Smooch Spritz to add a little glitter to his hair.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!, Circle Punches, Large Star Punch, Certainly Celery card stock, Basic Black card stock, Whisper White card stock, Certainly Celery button, Silver Smooch Spritz, Basic Black journaler, and Sticky Strip

Christ is Born Card

Here is a card I created recently using metal sheets. It is GORGEOUS! This picture just doesn't do it justice. I CASE'd it from here. I bought a roll of thin aluminum metal at a local craft store, and I cut a piece measuring 4'' x 5 1/4''. Then I placed it inside the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. Next I layered it onto my card base, stamped and embossed Christ is Born, and layer it onto the card. Finally I finished it by adding satin ribbon to the card.


  • Christ is Born stamp set- Wood only #111612
  • Whisper White card stock- #100730
  • Real Red card stock- #102482
  • Versamark ink- #102283
  • Embossing Buddy- #103083
