HSSTC145 ~ Fancy Folds

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!  I'm up late getting in some stamping time while I wait for my pecan pie to finish baking.  My house smells DELISH!  It's going to be hard to stay out of the pie in the morning.  Pecan pie and a hot cup of coffee....yum-o!  Wishful thinking ;)  Instead I'll be getting up and heading out to run with the turkey's (Turkey Trot 5k) so I can enjoy some of that pie with a little less guilt. 

Christmas will be here before we know it...eek!  I've been working on my gift tags and a few other Christmas crafts.  I've got a few gift cards that I will be giving this year and have been coming up with some fun gift card holders.  The Fancy Folds technique challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments gave me a great idea for a gift card holder.   With a little help from a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers, I made this fun Criss Cross Card.

The piece with the Merry Christmas sentiment pulls out.  I made a quick little gift card using MDS2...super easy!  This card would also make for a cute birthday or baby shower invitation.  Here's a look at the inside:
Supplies Used:

Paper ~ Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals Whisper White, Snow Festival DSP
Ink ~ Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Primrose Petals
Stamp Sets ~ Owl Occasions, No Peeking
Other Supplies ~ Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punch, Argyle Embossing Folder, Dazzling Details

Fun little gift card holder and really easy to put together.  I'll be using this design again soon!

Now, I must get myself off to bed...I need a few good hours of sleep if I want to have any decent chance of running a good race.  Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  Safe travels, time with your loved ones and full tummy's :)

Happy Stamping!
