Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

I've got a new challenge posted over at CSAYL!  This week I want you to make your own patterned paper.  Our awesome sponsor this week is

I love these templates!
This is the first time I've had the opportunity to play with one, and I'm hooked!  You can check out all of Leigh Ann's super affordable templates right here.

I decided to use "Top Notch" for my project today.
I decided to go for an elegant look this week.  I used a flourish stamp set that I picked up from JoAnns ages ago.  It's hardly ever seen ink and this was the perfect opportunity to bust it out again. 
 I used one image from the set and stamped it in VersaMark ink.  Then I added gold embossing powder and melted it with a heat tool.
Here's a peek at the back of the box. 
And this is how it opens.
I added a cute sentiment under the flap that is hidden when the box is closed.
So now it's your turn!
Hop on over to CSAYL for all of the prize details and a linky tool for your project.
