A reminder - and another snowman

Just a quick reminder that you only have till Friday to enter the drawing for a free Homemade Holiday stamp kit worth $29.99.  All you need to do is post some pictures of all those nifty Holiday projects you've been making.

You can see all the contest details HERE.

ecgsnowmangiftcard We got even more snow on Friday - 4 inches total!  Amazing, before Thanksgiving even.  Unfortunately, I still have not finished raking my leaves.  I still have bulbs to plant.  Yikes!

So here is another snowman card.  I used the Letter from Santa Cling set again and the same paper as the last one, but this one is a gift card holder card.  I wanted to get 3 out of each 12"x12" sheet of paper - so I cut them only 4" wide and them mounted it on a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" piece of cardstock to get them to A2 size.  It makes them a little more sturdy too.



ecgsnowmangiftcardin I colored the snowman with Copic markers and added some glitter with my Quickie Glue Pen.

The 12"x12" paper is folded to make a pocket to hold the gift card.  I added a place to write a message because the inside of the card was so dark.

If you would like to see a tutorial for making these gift card holders, you can click HERE.  Just keep in mind that if you want the cardstock backing, you need to cut the paper 4" wide score it at 2 1/2" and at 7 3/4" (instead of 2 1/2" and 8").


We had a great time at our little stamping event this past Friday.  It was sad that several people couldn't make it after all - but the ladies that came were wonderful!  We had fun, ate some yummy goodies and raised $100 for Lutheran World Relief.  All good stuff.
