Imagine That... Reindeer Gift Card Holder

While shopping a couple of weeks ago I came across the most adorable gift wrap, bags, and tags. It had 3 multicolor deer on the front and I immediately thought to myself  Self: you can make that with the Imagine and the Winter Woodland cartridge . I used Mr. Frosty for the prints and cut the deer @ 2.5" editing each one separately.

I cut two long rectangular scalloped sections to make the card, Using the built in shapes on  the imagine I printed a square of paper 6x6  {you don't need it to be 6" long but its easier to work with. score at 2 1/4 and 4 1/2 fold and tape in place to create a sleeve. Cut sleeve to 3 3/4 and sandwich between front and back.Cut notch with circle punch in center of sleeve.

Using the cropodile I inserted eyelets to hold the sleeve securely and add a splash of color...plus Hello I NEEDED Ribbon...I cant make a pretty card like this and not use ribbon, its against the law or something!
A sweep of stickles on the antlers finish it off and add just a tiny teensy bit of sparkle {see previously  mentioned law} And that is how easy it is to take an inspiration and make it your own, There are hundreds if not thousands of combinations using this very technique with the imagine...now go play!!!! as always, Happy Creating! :)
