Christmas Card Box Holder

Today it's my turn to show you an 'Anything but a card' project over at Catch the Bug.
I've made a card box holder before and found it to be very useful when giving card sets as gifts. So here's one for a Christmas themed set.
I used a stocking image, colored with Promarkers. I used an old DP with stockings from my stash, added a few die cut pine branches and a die cut bow. The label us also die cut and says Christmas post.

I'd like to enter my card box holder into these challenges as well:

I have never made a card box. It's a good idea! Yours looks so festive in the traditional colours, and love that stocking in the oval frames, it's beautifully coloured! The bow is so cute, too!
Hugs, have a good week!
