Happy Tuesday! Another ColourQ day, and the days to Christmas are looming near! My nieces and nephews get the gift of CASH from their Pugliese aunt & uncle, so I used this week’s challenge to make a little gift holder. First, the challenge:
and here’s my holder:
This was a fun one to make! You may recognize my little snowman…I used him a couple weeks ago, but this time added some watercolored trees and gifts to a couple of snow-covered hills.
The base of my card is two Top Notes cut from Crumb Cake cardstock; the cover one is scored at the top and adhered to the bottom one with some Sticky Strip. (My large tree, although it looks a bit turquoise, IS Glorious Green, believe it or not!) On the inside, a little 3x3 envelope fits perfectly, and of course, it had to be decorated as well:
Isn’t that spiffy? Then I can just slip in the gift and the whole thing fits in a standard envelope! I did add some glitter and a little twist of wired tinsel for some extra fun! I hope you’ll find some time in your busy schedule for yourself---to stamp, of course---and share it with us. Skate on over to the CQC blog to see what the other creative souls have made this week! And speaking of snowmen, my dear friend Sara gave Cassidy this little snowman for Christmas. and they’re sharing an apple bar together!
