Christmas Pop-Up gift card box

 I was looking for new way to give a gift card and saw this box.  You can find the tutorial here.  I really like the idea of being able to add a some candy along with gift card.  The snowflake tag was cut out using Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs.  The ribbon that raps the box keeps it closed.
I haven't decided if I want to stamp a message on the inside but there is always that possibility,

Tree Gift Tag

A quick Christmas Tag this week.
This was a free cut in Cricut Craft Room the week of 11/4.  I could easily be replicated using Accent Essentials or any other cartridge that has a basic circle and star pattern.  There are 4 layers if you count the star.  The yellow star is 3/8" wide.  The green is 2 1/2"-x-3 1/2".  I used a red that was cut at 2 3/8"-x-3 3/8".  The backing is an ivory card stock that is cut at 2 5/8"-x-3 5/8".  This framed the front nicely and then on the back I stamped To: & From:.  I used a rustic twine for the tie string.

Snowman Card

With Halloween over it's time to start on some of those Winter Cards.  I just love this snowman card.  I made it last year for the first time and had lots of orders for more.  The base is lite blue that is embossed with a snowflake pattern.  The snowman fave and top of the hat were cut using Stampin' Up, Top Note Die.  The brim of the hat is black card-stock with rounded edges.  The eyes are 1/2" circles cut using the cricut.  The carrot is from cut from the Cricut with the leaves snipped off.  The poinsettia is a cut file from Sihloutte.
