Guess What!!!!

I have been excitedly waiting for today to come!  I have been invited to be a guest designer for the month of December over at The Crafty Pad !

I will be doing projects or cards for Dec. 4, 11 and 18 using some of the wonderful images that can be found in the store of The Crafty Pad. 

This weeks challenge is "Give it a Punch".  The DT were all given a wonderful image to do our project with.  It is called 'Rudolph and Robin'.  You need to use at least 3 punched items on your creation!

Here is my gift card holder.  I could go in an envelope but I made this on to hang by a loop of ribbon in the Christmas tree. 

Rudolph & Robin (see him sitting on the antler) by The Crafty Pad
Pattern by The Waltzing Mouse specific post to stocking HERE
I added the snaps to make the sides more sturdy when putting the gift card in and out. 
Coloring:  Copic Markers
Dry Embossing:  CB embossing folder
Glitter:  OCL 'snow' glitter
Punches:  MS snowflake
MS holly leaf
Whimsey dies ticket die
Micheals snowflake punch (the little flakes)
The papers, ribbon and bling are all from my stash!

Hi Gale so lovely to have you with us as GDT this month. :)
I just adore this stocking card you have made and love how it opens to reveal a gift card. I also love how you have separated the elements of the image - such a clever idea. :)
