Day 6 of the 12 Days of Craftiness






Hi all, how's December treating you? It's ridiculous where I am, it was 11 degrees Celsius here yesterday and nary a snowflake in sight. Our Canadian winter is a bit of a joke so far this year!

I have been crafting away though, no matter the weather and I have finished up a few more things. Today's is a cute gift card holder. I had a hard time here, as the sheep stamp was much smaller than I thought, it really wasn't working as a focal point. So then I started playing around with my new postage stamp Nesties and thought, 'hey, that looks like a stamp' and that's how it ended up.

I used a template for the pop up bit - check out Paper Punch Addiction here, she has a ton of tutorials for you to use. (Although looking at her site agin, maybe I should have decorated the inside a bit more!)

Challenges:
Colour Scheme - Colour Create (blue, white and silver)
Inspiration Photo - For Your Inspiration
Celebrations - Card Crafters Circle (new challenge!)
