Christmas Gift Box

My brother is a helicopter pilot in the Navy and is currently in Bahrain.  He is going to be there over Christmas, so I have to send his presents over there.  Since he isn't home I decided to get him a gift card so he can use it there or save it for when he gets home, whatever is easier.  But I am a crafter, so I got busy making a fun gift box for the gift card.  I think it turned out pretty cool!
I used Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More 2 to create the gift box.  It was cut at 9."  I assembled it all except one side, wrapped the gift card in some tissue paper and slipped it in the box, and finished off the final side.  I then tied the ends with some dark green ribbon.  The cardstock I used for the box came from the Evergreen Stack by DCWV.  I used Christmas Cheer for the snowman.  It is cut at 2 1/2" using the blackout feature.  I adhered all the pieces of the snowman together, then used some black pearls for eyes and buttons.  I cut a strip of white cardstock at 4 1/2" wide, then ripped it to create the look of drifted snow.  I used a stamp from My Craft Spot for the sentiment and adhered the snow to the box.  I added my snowman, adhering it with foam tape for some added dimension.

I made this for the following challenges:
