Crazy 4 Challenges with Kraftin' Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge too!

This week I am combining Crazy4Challenges week 15 with Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge no. 9. I happen to be the Hostess this week for Kimmie's Challenge, so one random player will win the Ozzie and Harriet Stamp! How cool is that!

So both Challenges are to create a gift card holder. I looked at various templates and decided just to make my own, using my Cricut and the Christmas Cheer Cartridge. I cut two Ornaments out and just scored them at the bottom of the Silver Fob and glued them together. I cut smaller layers out of Designer Paper to create some contrast.



The images are coloured with both Copic Markers (Mitten......lol..........Ozzie should probably be renamed to Michael, due to the fact he's only wearing one mitten! I realized my mistake after ai coloured it, but was happy with the image and decided really, that Ozzie wanted to feel Harriet's pretty paw in his own! Scarf, Hat and Background). The Bears bodies were coloured with Prism Pencils as I like the Transparency I can achieve with the pencils. I inked the edges of the DP with A dark teal craft ink.



Here's the inside of the Gift Card. Perhaps it's a little primitive, but I like it anyway!!!!

Okay so here's the deets on the Challenges!

The Crazy4Challenges Challenge is sponsored by the Greeting Farm this week and our Hostess Joanne has written this up so eloquently:

Just have fun in the presentation!!! No pressure...just have fun!!! It could be a version of a card, a packaging design, a 'purse', a holiday ornament gift card holder!! Whatever suits your fancy or need is what you should 'play' with.....and, no, it does not have to be holiday related. It could be for any occasion!!! That is one of the great things about this team. We want your creative juices to flow freely, not confined!!!!

Our sponsor this month is........Being the first Challenge of the Month, this is our Prize Challenge. One lucky person will win the Butterfly Wishes set which was designed in collaboration between The Greeting Farm and our very own Jessica Diedrich. The winner will be announced next week when we post our new challenge.
