Products used to make this festive card can be purchased at the store--kind of a "try before you buy". This involves an embossing folder, die cuts, flower soft, white sharpie, velcro closures, corner rounder and Tim's tiny attacher. I added the Stampin' Up stamp/label.
At the Christmas in July open house at the store, I made this version which involved more layers and gluing rather than stapling the pocket. Excuse the bow made with oval punch outs. I didn't take such good care of it over the past six months! LOL
And here is one I made January, 2011 when I was on the Gingersnap Creations design team ( smaller valley fold in the center):
After eating lots of yummy food brought in for the pot luck, we gifted. This year instead of drawing numbers for the order in which we randomly chose our gift from under the tree, we each were given a gift and then played a game. A story was read and each time we heard the words "left" or "right" we had to pass our gift in that direction. It was a rather long story and when it was over we simultaneously opened our gifts. The gift that ended up in front of me was a lovely set of Martha Stewart stamps.
Here's a photo of Annette, the newly elected club president, Terri, the store owner, and me.
P.S. Don't forget my Gecko Galz Giveaway going on right now. Info is across the top of this blog.
