I created this Christmas Tree Advent Calendar using my Silhouette Cameo that my husband purchased for me for my birthday. This is the first project I created using this wonderful machine. I can’t imagine cutting everything to make this advent calendar by hand. The boxes, numbers, ornaments and 3D star were all cut with the Cameo. I used a Martha Stewart Snow Flurry PATP punch for the snowflakes. The bows were made with Brown, Red and Tan Scrapper’s Floss. All the printed papers were DCWV Holiday Collection Christmas Stack and Holiday Stack. The Red, Green and Brown shimmer card stocks are DCWV Shimmer Stack. And finally the boxes were created using Kraft, Green and Brown card stocks from Recollections.
Well, I hope you have been inspired. I’ve enjoyed creating this project for such a wonderful event by Cards for Men and was truly honored when asked to participate. Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the fabulous sponsor prize being offered.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope everyone has a terrific weekend! Hope you visit again!
