C2CU texture and Home for Christmas Polkadoodles

Hi everyone how are you all?!
Well, I'm sure you have all got over the mild changes of iOS 7 and are getting on with your lives lol!
I'm apologising again for my lack of blogging, we are decorating our kitchen and conservatory at the moment so I'm keeping busy in the house too!
I have a couple of little projects to show you today to showcase the new Home for Christmas CD at Polkadoodles and the first, my card, is also my DT project for the current challenge (use texture) at Crafts too challenge you with the added twist of adding glitter/shine to your project.
All my elements on the card are from the Polkadoodles CD, so that is the papers, the cute xmas trees and the stunning sentiment as my focus. I have punched out my flowers from the same papers too.
My textured elements are my cheesecloth and my embossed cardstock which I have used my Crafts too embossing folder on and have enhanced that with crackle paint. My glittery elements are my stickles glitter to my cardstock matting, the edges of my xmas trees and my frantage around the sentiment.
I have used Mariannes chinese rolled rose die to create these beautiful rolled roses in the matching colours with dew drop centers from Polkadoodles. I have also used Mariannes foliage die to create the kraft leaves with lots of picket fence crackle paint on them.
I'm not normally a fan of sentiment as a focus cards as I'm such an image fan but this is just one of the many fabulous sentiments on the CD and I just loved it and think it makes a stunning xmas card without any image.
I have also created this cute cookie box from the CD. The template comes ready to cut in different background papers with matching tags and this is such a pretty snowy scene.
All I have added is some stamped words to the tag, a pretty ribbon with a mariannes die cut snowflake in sparkly glitter cardsock and a twine tied button with a snowflake charm, a perfect and super easy gift box just right for a cookie!
Do check out what my other teamies at C2CU have made this week and do check out this stunning CD from Polkadoodles, there is another make to show you tomorrow too!
Thanks for coming by my blog!
Big hugs
