Christmas card in a tin

Here are the pictures of the card in a tin I made at a workshop at one of the local craft shops. I really enjoyed this class and came away with a spare tin to have another go!



Bit disappointed with the lid, you know what its like stamping on a slippy surface with Staz On. If I'd been at home I would have cleaned it off and started again but as there were other people waiting to use the stamps I didn't feel I could.



The first side visible as you open the tin. I love the colours used throughout this project.



This is the reverse side, I've changed the image from the one provided as I wasn't too keen on it and it didn't stamp very well on the textured card - think my lil' snowman looks good here.
There is a scalloped circle popped behind the large snowflake to write the greeting on.

Wow Sam, what a fantastic project. The stamping on the front of the tin look great to me and I just love how you've done the insides. I shall be looking out for a tin now - you've inspired me.
