Hey!! Happy New Year.

Ya I know it's been awhile but live has been great and very busy. Christmas was fantastic here at the Millers. My sister and her grown children came to play on Christmas Eve.

I finally got into my craft room. Now you see you can hardly see the floor because of all the new stuff I just had to have and not used yet. I think it will be till August that I may get it all cleaned up.

Today's card is made from the new stamp set McSplendid Farm from The Greeting Farm, formally known as Pink Poison. I just love this new set. So adorable are all the animals. Now some of you may know that this set has been out for a month and I am just now getting to it. Can you feel my pain!! I have this wonder set here on my work table and no time to get to it. Well time has changed and now I am back among the stamping.

Here are some pictures of the card I did today.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

How to make a Fantastic Gift Card Holder

Today at SCS the Try a new technique challenge was to make a pop up gift card holder. It is awesome Check out this link for a video on how to do it. Hero Art's Club Blog. I used the new Wishing Tree stamp set from Pink Poison. Perfect for this challenge.

Here are the directions as posted on SCS
What you'll need:
4 X 12 Piece of patterned paper (or you can make your own by stamping a piece of 4 X 12 piece of cardstock)
4-1/4 X 4-1/4 Square piece of coordinating cardstock (used as mat for mounting the interior of gift card)
Bone Folder
Craft Knife

* Take your 4 X 12 piece and score it 4" from one end (horizontal orientation) - flip to the other end and score 4" from that end. This will give you a piece divided into 3- 4" squares
* Burnish all score lines with your bone folder
* Take the middle square and fold it in half, creating the Pop Up portion of this card in a "hill" -^-
* Using your gift card as a guide, cut a slit in the center of middle of your folded piece large enough for your gift card to slide into
* Adhere the back side of your pop up portion to your 4-1/4" square piece of cardstock
* Embellish as desired
* Insert gift card (the important part)

Thanks for stopping by.
