New Year, New Blog, and Giveaway

Hello, crafty friends. Happy New Year! I decided to make the switch from Blogger to WordPress and I thought we could celebrate my with my first blog post. (More on that in a bit.)

First, I want to share a new card design…

Just because the holiday season is over, it doesn’t mean the giving has to stop. I created a gift card holder using THIS polar bear die. It works perfectly since the arms have slits. After die-cutting the polar bear from white cardstock, I stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set and added a scarf using some felt. I added THIS to the nose and eyes to make them stand out.

For the background, I applied some of THIS through THIS stencil to create snow and added some of THESE snowflakes that I cut from THIS glitter cardstock. I added a white frame cut with THIS die to frame in the scene and added THIS on top to give it a frosted look.

I want to celebrate this new year and new blog with a giveaway! Leave a comment on this post by Sunday, January 22nd at midnight EST. I will randomly choose one winner to receive the card shared here with the gift card along with a package of crafting goodies! I will announce the winner on this blog post on January 23rd. Good luck!

ETA: Congrats ANGELA HENDRICKS. You’re the winner! Please email me your address by clicking the CONTACT ME button.
