Twelve Weeks of Christmas- Week One

I know it is only the first week of October, but believe it or not, there are only 82 days till Christmas!

Yes, girls it is time to start planning, and making your cards and shopping for gifts to beat the rush.

Here is my submission for the first of the Twelve Weeks of Christmas:

From the outside it looks like a cute snowman card with a belly band.....but on the inside:

It is a gift card holder!

To make:

Crumb Cake cardstock 8.5" x 5.5" scored at 2.5" and5.5"
Using versamark ink and images from Snow Much Fun stamp set decorate the flap with the bird on the snowball, and the front with the tree image.
With Cherry Cobbler Ink and Curly Cute stamp set stamp the greeting
Using the ribbon punch and Cherry Cobbler cardstock punch a strip 5.5" long and attach to inside of front flap
With Cherry Cobbler cardstock 7" x 1" make a belly band. It needs to keep the card closed but still be able to slide off smoothly.
With Very Vanilla stamp the snowman image on the front and color - then punch out with the1.5" circle punch
Withe Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the scalloped circle punch, punch out one and then paper pierce holes in each scallop
Assemble your card!  A glue dot or bit of tap runner will hold your gift card in place.
