On the third day of Christmas . . .

Welcome to Day Three of's 3rd Annual 25 Days of Crafting Showcase!  Each and every day from December 1st through December 25th the 25+ Design Team members will be bringing you tons of holiday inspiration, daily freebies and weekly giveaways.

Our theme today is poinsettias, pine cones and/or presents.  Here is what I created:

The card base is kraft card stock and measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded.  The mats are both from my scrap stash -- the bottom one is "Guacamole" by Bazzill and the top is from a paper pack by K & Co.

My little gift bearer is from the Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge.  She is cut at 4 3/4" tall and is made completely from scraps!  (Love using up my scraps!)  I added a little grosgrain bow on her ponytail and some tiny pearl buttons on her dress.  The frame with my text is cut from the Cricut "Just Because" Cards cartridge at 3 3/4" wide x 1 1/4" tall.  I inked the edges with red ink. It is pop-dotted over the baker's twine.

This little card is headed to brighten a child's day at the Children's Hospital Central California as part of my teammate, Madison's, "I Feel the Love" Project.  Each month Madison chooses a different organization or individual to receive some handmade gifts of love from crafters all over the world.  For more information and to find out how you can get involved, please see Madison's web site "I Feel the Love" Project.

I hope you'll head on over to and check out the other amazing creations the Design Team came up with.  While you are there, make sure you download the awesome freebies and leave a comment to be eligible for the weekly prize drawing!

I love this card. You gave so much info. I am guessing the girl figure is cut at about 3.5-4". I would like to make something similar.
Thank you for this 25 days of crafting.
