Creepmas in Spooktober

Yep, you read that right, it’s Creepmas in Spooktober.  That’s because for Day 6 of the 13 Days of Halloween at Simply B Stamps the theme is to Collide Two Holidays, namely Christmas and Halloween to make it Creepmas.  I’m featuring Christian Skellington from a Teen Scene Christmas collection on my creepy box.

The box itself is a Silhouette cut by Jamie Cripps that was super easy to put together.  It comes with the cut for the designer paper for the front, I cut two so I could have the same paper on the back.

I made the embellie tree from shrink plastic, it is the tree from Rio Trimming the Tree from the Emo Christmas collection, I just cut Rio out as I was cutting out the tree.  By placing Christian just so I could cover the missing branches of the tree.

The sentiment is computer generated and cut from a Tattered Banners die.  To distress the edges I used some Moss Vintaj, I think it is suitably slime-like for a Creepmas gift box.

Being Creepmas and a bit spooky I am entering my box in the current challenge at Craftitude.  And although a bit creepy this is definitely Christmas and a box perfect for some candy, not to mention having the candy cane charm so I am also linking it up at Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long’s current challenge.
