Hello, my crafty friends! Happy Monday to you! It’s time for a new challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #23 – Anything Christmas Goes! I created a pretty card with a pop-up gift bag inside to hold cash or a gift card! OMGosh, I’m so smitten!


I created the card base and then selected two coordinating patterned papers. I stamped the sentiment in green ink, cut it out and layered it on three stacked die cuts. I fashioned a bow from six strands of gold metallic thread and attached tiny red jingle bells to the ends hanging down.


Here’s a shot of the card opened up showing the gift bag. How stinkin’ cute is this?!


I stamped the inside sentiment in green ink, cut it with a fancy die and layered it on a slightly larger green die cut.


And here’s one more look… so happy with this! It’s been several years since I created one of these, and my instructions are handwritten, so I don’t know who should get the credit. But I sure do love it!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
