Believe Advent calendar

Good Friday to ya. Well it's another Die cut challenge @ SOUS and this week it is a Christmas Tree. I have really been in the mood to play with making things instead of scrapbooking , I bought this Advent Callendar @ my local craft store Moms Memmories and a few other goodies I got also gonna post a little later.
This is a Kaisercraft advent calendar that you have to put together, the olny bad thing about it is it comes with no instructions.... I found some online and it worked prefect! I really like how this came out.
I used Kaisercraft Advent calendar put it together painted it black and added paper.
Martha Stewart branch punch for the fronts of the drawers every other one..
The numbers I painted black they come with the kit.
Cricut cartridge Christmas Cheer for the ( Christmas tree ) I cut the bottom off and added lace ribbon for a tree skirt. I used Martha Stewart branch punch and added a bunch of branches on the tree along with some fiber ribbon, sm pom poms, some red buttons and a gold star for the top. I used paper and folded it and made a box behind the tree to make it 3D.
Cricut cartridge Christmas cheer for the fire place also added branch punch on the mantel and folded box behind it also.....
The title came from cricut cart Winter woodland and plantin school I mixed and matched ...
For the top I used gingham ribbon that I a bell some greenery and some sm bows .... I choose these colors because I love country and they are the traditional colors reds,greens. Well I hope I have given you some inspiration and I hope you stop by SOUS for lots more....thanks for stopping by
Have a great day
Hugs Wanda
