Little Clara


Over at the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge blog, they have a new challenge going on this week. It's to make a giftcard holder to go along with their Christmas in July theme. How fun! The rules said we could make any kind of giftcard holder we wanted, so I made one that works just like a card - because at Christmastime I inevitably forget to get a gift for someone far away, and need something ready to send quickly!

I used the Clara image (well, her Pixie Dust name is Claire) from the newly released Nutcracker Pixie Suite. Isn't she adorable?!?!?


Inside the card, I made a small pocket to hold the giftcard. It was really easy to do! I may go back and add a circle with a sentiment on it, but for now I left it blank. I'm super pleased with this because my husband really liked it - and it is always nice when he likes crafty stuff!

This is darling! I like how you cut Claire/Clara out and popped her up on top of the oval. You did a fabulous job coloring her to coordinate with those yummy papers.
