Anything But a Card at Card Ideas



At Card Ideas for D2D this week it is anything but a card and something we would give as a Winter or Christmas gift. I decided to make a holiday journal and I know just the person to give this to. I used Faith's image "For the Birds" along with a journal from Michael's craft store. My dp's are from Basic Grey's Jovial pack and I colored him with a combination of Tim Holtz distress inks and Stampin' Up markers. I used Spellbinders Snowflake and Rectangle Scallop dies along with Clear Dollar Stamps dies. The chipboard Merry Christmas and white snowflake are from a pack by Making Memories.



For the inside, I used some of the plaid paper used on the front to create index tags. I left the sections blank as I thought the person receiving it could use each one for her own ideas.....gift lists, card lists, etc.
Stop by and play along if you have a desire to get ahead on gifts for this year. Wishing you a happy day!

A very cute holiday project Patty, this would be great for keeping track of gifts and thank you notes.

BTW, I think you meant to comment on the card post that puts you in the blog candy give away on my blog but your comment posted on the card under it because the description didn't fit that card and just thought it fair I let you know.
Now I'm going to take a peek at your blog.
