Frosty the Gift Card Holder
My mom asked me in the middle of December if I could make 10 gift card holders for her which I was more than happy to do. So if any of you cruise the splitcoast galleries you would have seen these little cuties everywhere. Mine was all improvised. I really didn't have any measurements was just going along on a wing and a prayer but I'll try to tell you how I put mine together.
I started with a 4x4 card base that you can't see after I attached frosty's face. I cut his face on the cricut Storybook cart using the marquee shape at 5 inches. I glued it to the card base and then cut a 1 1/4 in strip for the brim of his hat and a 2 x 4 3/4 in piece for the top of his hat. I embossed both of those with the cuttlebug. For his eyes I just used some circle punches and added a dot with a white marker. The nose... I punched an orange square and cut the corner off at an angle. I drew on his happy little mouth that acutally makes him look a bit tipsy, he should have laid off the egg nog. The holly is also cut from the cricut Joy of the Season cart. It doesn't show in the pick but he has diamond stickles all around the edge of his face and eyelids to give him a little bling for the holiday season.
Hope you enjoyed this project. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by If I can ever get to a 100 followers I think I'll have to offer up some more blog candy :)
