Yeti Gift Card Holder

Back again today with yet another YETI project. I told you I adore them!

On Day 5 of her 2016 Holiday Card Series Kristina Werner made some super cute origami gift card holders. You can watch her video HERE. Well, I needed a gift card holder for one of my Dad's Christmas presents, so I decided to give the origami gift card holder project a try.

I used plain kraft wrapping paper to create the gift card holder and decorated the outside very simply with a handsome little yeti. I love his scarf!

Here's a look at the inside:

I cut a piece of patterned paper to 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", scored it at 2 1/4" and tucked it inside the flaps. You can write (or stamp) your to/from info on the corners.

I tucked the gift card inside and then tied up my little package with some baker's twine.

I can definitely see myself making more of these in the near future. So simple and super fun!

I'm also going to link this up to the most recent Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Gift It.


Thanks for visiting!

Yeti Love

Hello there! Today I'm sharing a card I created for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 267.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

I was inspired not only by the sketch but also by Karren J's white, snowy dots on her kraft card base. Thanks, Karren!

I absolutely LOVE this little yeti! He's so festive with his string of holiday lights and his winter hat! This time around I paired him up with some whimsical trees from the Snow Globe Stamp Set by Avery Elle and a snow drift and giant snowflakes from My Favorite Things.

I had so much fun making this card and can't wait to send it to my brother and my nephew for Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fleece Navidad

Popping in today to share a project I made for Lawnscaping Challenge 143: Let It Snow.

I used Lawn Fawn's Small Stitched Envelope dies to create a gift card holder and label and then decorated it using the Baaah Humbug Stamp Set. I absolutely adore the sweet little sheep and fun accessories in this set!!! SO CUTE!

Here's a closer look:

I decorated the back with a simple heart die-cut from patterned paper.

My mom really wants some boot socks for Christmas, so we're giving her a gift card to shop for some. I think this little envelope will be the perfect packaging.

Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a wonderful week!!!

Hi there! Popping in today to share some winter tags I made to decorate two welcome baskets for new neighbors in our mountainhood. I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

I backed each tag with a second tag cut from white cardstock, so I could write a little message on there.

I had so much fun making these tags, and I'm really excited about how they turned out! I hope you like them too!

Well, Marcie invited me to participate in her "Create Together" series, so today we're both sharing projects we created using some fantastic Concord & 9th products we received as gifts at the retreat (THANK YOU, Concord & 9th!!!).

Here's my card featuring the O Christmas Tree Stamp Set:

I absolutely LOVE those happy little trees and the gorgeous fonts in the sentiment! I stamped the images in black onto red cardstock and then added the snowy details with a white gel pen. I was inspired by this Starbucks cup:
