Anything But The Holidays - Blog Hop!

Earning Alaska Blog Hop

Welcome to another "Earning Alaska" Blog Hop!  Today's theme is Anything But The Holidays! And since the holidays are right around the corner - I thought this theme was just perfect!  We are all so wrapped up in Christmas presents, eating, card making, eating, watching your favorite holiday shows & eating!  Such a busy time of the year!  

I have Christmas on the brain and this is the project I made at first because I could only think of Christmas!  So this is TOTALLY Christmas! I so goofed on this one! But ....hmmm there you go!
This is a simple little gift card or  stocking stuffer that can be filled with all different types of goodies! I chose these two, because again -I have Christmas on my brain, below...a different story. What we were actually supposed to create!  Sucha goof! Want the measurements?  Here ya go: 
Made with the gift card framelits, but the paper is as follows:
2 1/2 x 3 3/4 for the layer 
1 x 6 1/4 for the belly band
score it @ 3/4 and 3 1/2! Easy! 

This is what we were supposed to do.  Anything BUT the holidays.  But we had to use product from the holiday catalog.  So yeah! here you go!
Not that bad right?  They really don't look like the holidays, except we know it's a stamp set from the holidays!  Whoo Hoo!  Here are the details: I used the designers series paper from the Paisleys & Petals suite.  This was such a beautiful set for the fall!! I also used the stamp set from the holiday catalog called __ .  My DSP was cut at 3 x 4 1/4 to fit across the bottom!  and there is vellum in there. I thought was just to kind of give it a special touch, since it is a sympathy card. 

So why not do something that's totally not Christmas or Holiday related?  Here we go!
