My December Daily!


I’ve never done a December Daily before but wanted to give it a try! It is a little bit different from the norm. Mine is a mini that is kept inside a large 8×8 matchbox style box from Graphic 45. The papers I used were also Graphic 45’s 12 Days of Christmas. This week I wanted to highlight how well different Paper Temptress paper emboss and cut. I used the gorgeous Incandescent Rosso paper and the Treasures Grass Cardstock to make some details for the cover of my box.


 I did a lot of fussy cutting of some embossed images for the cover, including the holly leaves, the partridge and poinsettia, and the lovely Christmas tree on the inside cover of the mini. I highlighted the embossing with gorgeous gilding wax in gold to bring out the details. The papers die cut beautifully and I added two flourishes to complete the cover.

I love the extra detail that embossed image add to my vignette I have created and how the flourishes add to the design. I am so excited to have this a new piece of decor for years to come. I loved adding the little scene to the front of the box and the dancing scene on the cover of the mini.

Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you like the project!!
