I’ve been playing around with the Rustic Christmas Countdown Kit from the Kits Collection, and I came up with a way to make 25 pocket cards and a fun Advent calendar by adding 24 Nested Treat Boxes. Below you will find details for the cards, and on Saturday I’ll share details for the Advent calendar.
I just showed live on YouTube and on Facebook earlier today step-by-step directions for creating these alternates with this kit and a bit of other coordinating Stampin’ Up! product. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the cards I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel or tune into my events on my Facebook Page so you can get updates when I share and go live). Then on Saturday I will post the measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the Advent calendar shown in the video.
