Challenge Reminder - Anything But a Card
by Nancy Penir


Hello! And welcome to a friendly reminder to create something for our challenge this month, 'Anything But a Card'.

Need a hint? How about a gift card holder? Who couldn't use a few of those this time of year?

Surprise Deer is so sweet, and gets the 'aaahs' everytime!

Here's how I used him to make my gift card tag.


If you purchase one tag set this year, let me rave about Pinpoint Main Street Tags, and

Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations.

8 sizes to choose from, and together with the Decorations sets, you have endless possibilities!

I cut my tag from shimmer card stock, ran it though an embossing folder, and chose one of the decorations dies for a pocket.


The deer was sprayed with shimmer spray, and sponged on the edges. Notice the antlers can be cut separately allowing for a color change.


Assembling my gift card holder was easy. Just glued the sides and bottom of the added Dome Tag Decoration. The snowy base is the top of the Dome Tag cut to form a hill. The hill, snowflake and Tree Trunks were cut from glitter paper.

Not decided yet who will get this Starbucks gift card!


Liked this design so much, I made 3 in different color combos!

Does this give you ideas? Would love to see and comment on your creation. Remember, the challenge lasts all month, and there's a gift certificate prize for the winner!

Happy Crafting, and Happy Holidays!
