Happy Happy Happy Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog, we are all ready for another year for fun challenges. Being a brand new month (and year) it's time to introduce our challenge hostess for the month which is Karen Ostergard.

Our challenge this week is .... Happy New Year:  To celebrate, we are challenging you to try something new on your project.  Either a new-to-you product or technique.

Now that Christmas is over and all the Christmas themed stamps/dies etc have been put away for at least 6 months, I have lots of new stamps, dies etc that I am itching to play with. 

To create my card this week, I decided to pull out Honey Bee Stamps Gift Card Present Box, which I received a few weeks before Christmas. This die is meant to to a gift card, however for mine I just added sentiments. I have made this style of card before without a die about 9 or so years ago, you can find my earlier cards here.

To decorate my card I used stamps from La-La Land Crafts August Kit which was a birthday theme. I have been wanting to use this image for some time now and I just love the sentiments included in this set.

As you can see the top part of the present pulls out which reveals a greeting or a gift card if you want to use it the way the die was designed.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

So cute - fun idea for both a card AND a gift card holder!
