Snowman Gift Card Holder

Hi there! We were due to get our first snow of the year later today, so I thought I would create something with this cute little snowman from Inkadinkado. I surfed some of my favorite challenge blogs and decided to combine two challenges to create this little gift card holder. Over at Crazy 4 Challenges they asked us to create a gift card holder and on the Just Us Girls blog my pal Pam posted a great sketch for this week. I turned the sketch on its side for my project.

I started with a piece of Twilight Dark Prismatic cardstock cut into a 3 1/2" x 12" strip and then scored it at 5" and 10". I embossed the front panel and the bottom 2" with my Cuttlebug and folded the 2" piece up to create a pocket for my gift card (the white piece on the "inside" pic is my "faux gift card") I promise to get a real one before I give it away :) The snowman is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white shimmer cardstock and colored with my Copics. The snowman and sentiment were cut out with my Classic Oval Nesties and layered to Nautical Blue Light scallop oval panels. The sentiment on the inside is from the Hero Arts Holiday Greetings set. I finished off with layered MS snowflake punches, ribbon and rhinestones.

I hope your Sunday was great and your Monday will be even better!
