Merry Monday #262 {Gifts} Cozy Critters and North Pole Pals

You will find my CASology Guest Designer Card HERE
I make a lot of cards, so it might get lost in the shuffle of my blog posting.  Hence the above link.

Today I made this card for the challenge at: Merry Monday Christmas 
We are to use gifts on our card.  So that is exactly what I did literally by adding a small gift box directly on the card.  I found the instructions on youtube  at: Debbie's Designs.  I had to make my own homemade DSP.  I really don't have very much DSP on hand.  But I thought this was a lovely option to try and do.  I used Cozy Critters from stampin up and North Pole Pals from Avery Elle.  The card is quite easy to make.  I just LOVE that. Yes indeed I see a mass production of these in my future. 😊

I added all the pictures so hopefully you can see how cute it stands on it's own and how fabulous it holds up, and I didn't use heavy card stock either.  Just a pretty tough little card.  After the pictures though I wish I would have stuck with the smaller presents along the horizonital strip on the bottom that holds the giant present.  I think it might have looked even better with the smaller presents.. But NEXT time. This is my first attempt to make this card, and I was more concerned about getting the measurements all right I suppose.  

Any ways thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  I hope you'll take a look around and perhaps sign up to follow my blog
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
