Snow Family Wishing from Michelle Perkett

Hi, brrrrrrrr its freezing here at the minute perfect snowman building weather. Today I've made a pop up gift card holder for my son using this cute image from Michelle Perkett. Its called 'Snow Family Wishing' and you can find it in Michelle's store here

There's a new challenge starting today over at Michelle Perkett Studios so pop over and see what Jan and her talented team of mermaids have in store this week :-)

The image is coloured with promarkers and I've used some snowman paper from Dovecraft that i've had for years. I've added some pale blue shimmery ribbon and puffy paint and glitter to the image. I forgot to take a pic of the inside doh! It was pretty easy to make, I saw a few tutorials but I'd already coloured the image and it was a little bigger so I cut a piece of white A4 card to the width I wanted and then scored along the A4 gatefold line of my scoreboard and the A4 half fold line. I turned the card around and scored the A4 gatefold at the other side. Then fold valley fold, mountain fold, valley fold. Cut out a slot to pop your  gift card in and attach the two middle bits together with DST around the edge.

I'm entering my gift card holder in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: Gift card holder
Fussy and Fancy Friday: anything but a card
OSAAT: Old stash , new stash (my bps are old, the image is new)
Paper Sundaes: Gift it
Lollipop challenge: Welcome Winter
