Spring Chicken

Yeah!  Boxing Day came and Mommy got to pull out her paper again for the first time in a month.  I've been knitting so as not to mess up my dining room before Christmas.  While it's great most of the time, sometimes I hate having a craft area that's in the main space.

I tried my hand at a diaperfold card.  I used the tutorial at SpeedyTV but there is another on Splitcoast.  Love how easy it is.  I adapted the size to 7 inches square which leaves me a base that is just perfectly fits a gift card.    What a great way to make a gift card actually look like a gift!  I was moaning all December that I really wanted a gift card envelope die.  I may still get one for myself...

Here's what it looks like without the tag.  I used double-sided DP from my Costco stash.  The image is a retired set from Stamping Up, a Flower for All Seasons, I think.

Here's the tag I made to go with.  The flower is to hide the fact that I accidentally cut the angle cuts unsymmetrical.

Challenges this Card Meets:
Tutorial Time on Speedy TV - Diaper Fold
Charisma Cards - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Use It Tuesday - Thinking to 2013 (I always need gifts for the daycare.)
