Christmas in July FB Hop w/ PKS & KDB

Hello everyone and welcome to our KaDoodle Bug Designs and Peachy Keen Stamps Christmas in July Facebook hop! 
It is beginning to look at lot like Christmas around here despite the warm summer weather. We have some amazing projects to share with you all week long from both of our very talented design teams. As well as some great prizes to be won! Our hop will start each day right here on the KaDoodle Bug Designs fan page.

Even though this is a Facebook hop, I wanted to share my project on my blog to give the complete supply list I used and to share a few additional up close pictures.
So here is my project! A fun 3D treat box with lots of Peachy Keen Stamps and an adorable file from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

Here is a close-up of that cute new PKS face. I used one of the new releases from the Christmas in July Face Assortment. I colored his eye in with a green copic and a white gel pen, added some chalk to his cheeks as well as some more white gel pen highlights. For the reindeer cut, I didn't use the eyes and nose that came with the file, instead I added another PKS face, this one from the Bird Faces and More and then for his nose I used an enamel dot. I also changed up the snowflake, using a MCT die and adding silver chunky glitter to it, then popping it up onto the cut.
Here is the sentiment I used. It is again from a new release! the Musical Elves stamp set. I stamped it onto a MCT die, added another glittery snowflake and then attached it to my bow using a pear pin I picked up from my friend Beckie over at Just B Creative Crazy
