BRRRR! Boy is it cold here in New England! I always hate the first cold blast here, it proves that it is time to hunker down for the winter. We have no snow yet though, thank goodness. Today is Tuesday and that means that it is time for another fantastic challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week we are having some fun with the challenge, create a gift or gift wrapping. Sounds like a fun challenge, right? So come play with us!
I give a lot of gift cards every year for Christmas so to make it a little more personal I try to dress up them up a bit with a handcrafted holder. I chose this one to make this year after seeing it on Joni's Blog, she gave great instructions to make it, thanks Joni! You can't see it in the picture but it sparkles all over because I dotted each snowlkake on the DP with Stickles. Also all the snowflake embellishment either have been glittered or are made with prism paper so they have a lot of shine and sparkle. I also decided to make it hang this year so it could be put on the tree. I made the largest one so I could add a few goodies if I wanted with the card. I used a 12x12 piece of double sided DP (Bo Bunny). I may add a greeting to the back, I'm not sure yet.
The ladies really made some wonderful creations this week so be sure to stop by and check them out for some wonderful inspiration!
