I was looking for an interesting way to give gift cards to my grandkids for Christmas when Jennifer McGuire came up with some fantastic techniques - so ordered the Lawn Fawn Magic Slider die and I was in business.  Since the theme for A Blog Named Hero's challenge this month is holiday or winter these fit in perfectly - after I got the hang of it, they weren't hard at all to do.

For the snowman card I used HA's Vintage Christmas Wishes stamps and the tree is HA's Color Layering Christmas Tree.  The snowflake card uses the Snowflake Confetti die and a discontinued HA snowflake die.  The background is a piece of alcohol inked yupo paper.  Silver Nuvo drops were added to the front also.  Jennifer's video clearly explains how to make these fun cards.

There is still time to enter a holiday or winter card at ABNH and be eligible for a great prize.

Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.


  1. These are fabulous, Betty! Such a neat way to give a gc for kids or adults! They're all great, but I especially love the second one! Happy Holidays!

  2. Such fun reveals to your sliders, Betty! Especially love the snowflake one!!

  3. LOVE these super fun cards Betty, whoever received them should have been thrilled! Sorry I haven't been around in a while . . . mum keeps me very busy! I hope to do better in 2018! All good intentions anyway! I hope you had a good Christmas and that 2018 will be a happy and - above all - healthy one! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx

  6. Such a clever idea, Betty! I love that each card is so unique and beautiful, as well! I'll bet your grandkids got a real kick out of it, too!
