My creation this week is more than just a card. I made a Card Holder with 4 cards all featuring Elie the Ewe.


And here's a close-up of each individual card...




Fred She Said has the challenge to Create a 3D Gift for a Loved One...This is for my Mother in Law (I've made sheep cards for her in the past). I printed Elie in 4 different sizes. I used Fun Flock in White, Yellow and Cantaloupe and watercolor markers for the nose and hooves. The cards are made from a Stampin' Up Christmas paper pack
in olive and pink (I bought it at a garage sale last year then again this year so I must have liked it - LOL). I also printed out the sentiments using MS word and a bunch of different fonts. For each card, I raided various "odds & ends" (except the ribbon) for pretty and different ways for decoration. I hope you enjoy looking at my cards. Now to continue on your hopping way, please go see Karen.
