Merry Christmas Treat Tube Holder

I love 3-D items, especially treat holders during this time of year.  I saw this adorable Treat Tube Holder by Erica Cerwin and knew that I HAD to make one for Christmas.  I used the Year of Cheer designer paper, which is gorgeous with gold and silver snowflakes.  I added some Gold & Silver Foil Sheet circles, a little Gold bow and some fun Year of Cheer Washi Tape to help keep the cork in the Treat Tube.  The greeting is from Merry Cafe stamp set.

I love the Eclipse technique.  I saw this card by Lyssa Z. and knew that I had to do this for my Stamp & Go Club.  We don’t make enough religious themed cards for Christmas.  I love the Night in Bethlehem stamp set and coordinating Bethlehem Edgelits Die.  So fabulous for those special Christmas cards.  This card combines the eclipse technique and the Night in Bethlehem bundle.
