Extended Pillow Box - with Cozy Christmas

I have been enjoying playing with the Pillow Box thinlits for the last week :o) I love creating pretty packaging .... and the Pillow Box die is perfect for this.

The die will create a Pillow Box approximately 4 ½" x 4" in size - but you can easily extend this to make it longer.
Today's box is 7 ¼" x 4" and was created using two pieces of card 
8 ¼" x 5". You would be able to create it from either a US or European (A4) sheet of standard card stock - with some spare :o) You can go even longer than this by cutting your card stock in the opposite direction - BUT you will have to use 2 sheets for your box.

 I have stayed with Cozy Christmas for the central image and sentiment - but I used another new set for decorating the box itself - Flurry of Wishes - which is a beautiful Snowflake set (and has a matching Punch!).

I cut the window out of the box using one of the 'extra' dies you get with the Pillow Box set. The little glittery snowflakes were also cut using one of these 'extras' :o)

I stamped the image onto Cardstock Vellum using Versamark  and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder.
