Mo Blog Hop Cards with a Gift



If it's the third Thursday in the month, it can only mean one thing!  It's hopping day with Mo's Dream Team .
If you're joining in the hop, hopefully you will have arrived here from  our lovely Jane's blog, but if you didn't and want to join in, head back here to the start at Kerttu's blog who has chosen this month's theme of  Cards with a Gift inside.

I decided to make a purse card to hold a gift card inside and used  the fabulous Witches Trick.  
The frame was cut with a Memory Box Die as were the bows on the presents,  The little  felt gingerbread man was from my local Pound Shop and the even teenier wooden one is  from Make It Crafty I think.  The papers are K&Co.
The above picture shows the inside with gift card in situ!    I cut the holder with some help from besty, Lesley, and her press die cutting machine!  The above looks a little wonky but it isn't in real life!! I haven't shown the entire inside as I put some velcro on the handles inside to hold it shut and, actually, I think spoils it a little.  Note to self - buy some velcro round fasteners, (I'm sure I've seen them somewhere!)

Also, remember that if you are hopping, leave a comment for  each of the team as there will be hidden two yummy $5 dollar vouchers  to be won by two lucky hoppers!!
Right, your next stop on the hop is over to the fabby Debby4000's blog.
Hope you have fun hopping and enjoy what you see!!
