Mark's Finest Papers November Blog Hop Day 2

It is my day to be featured over at Mark's Finest Papers Blog, but I wanted to share what I made for the 2 sets - Bold & Free and Christmas Postage Due.  I love this feather from Bold & Free- so realistic!  It makes for a great masculine card also.


















This second set Christmas Postage Due. I made a gift card holder.  They are always so convenient this time  of year [and with a teenager on the list].  I opted not to color in the nutcracker, and I think it works just being stamped in black.  Want to know how to make this?  Okay.
5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock (half sheet)  -  score at  2" and 6" - adhere side edges of bottom flap.  Decorate as desired.  I used velcro for closure.  Easy right?  My kind of project.
That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by - See you tomorrow~~

Ooo, these are both such fab designs, Vicki! I love the feather on the first one, and the colours on the second are gorgeous!

Both cards rock! I like the way you didn't color the nutcracker, now he pops but doesn't take over the card.

I really love that 1st card, the 2nd one is also lovely. Thanks to you I have just learned what a nutcracker is - after heavy scrutiny of both cards I might add!
