Enough about shopping--let's talk about crafting! Today's Monday Challenge at My Craft Spot is to create a Christmas shaped card. Since I am behind on my holiday crafting, I thought I would make a present shaped card that I could use as a gift card holder.
|I started with the *present* cut on page 109 of Doodlecharms.|
I wanted my card to still fit in an A2 sized envelope,so I cut the
layers at 4 1/2 ". The *Merriest Wishes* is from the
Jingle All The Way stamp set by My Craft Spot.
|I welded the *shadow* feature with my Gypsy|
to make a card.
|I cut an extra shadow layer, cut the top section off,|
and then sewed around the edge to make a pocket.
The stamped *To From* is from the *Merry Christmas*
stamp set by My Craft Spot. I ran a piece of sticky
strip and then added some maraschino twine.
|Since I was on a roll I made a couple more cards.|
I used scarlet red, snow white, and bubble gum hand dyed crinkle ribbon.
|The scarlet red ribbon makes such a beautiful bow.|
