Do you love Buddy the Elf?
Buddy has definitely coined some of my most favorite phrases of all time – if you come to visit my house at any time of year, you are sure to hear someone say one of these Buddy quotes:
“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!”
“I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.”
“Don’t be a Cotton-Headed Ninny Muggins!”
“And guess what – I love you, I love you, I love youuuuuu!”
So I made my WOW project for my Christmas Card Class this year a Gift Card Holder that is fashioned after the happiest elf of all time!
The pouch is made using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and cutting a cardstock insert to fit inside. A gift card can then be attached to the insert with two-sided tape.
I don’t gift very many gift cards, but I sure want to give someone a gift card this year just so I can pass along this little cutie!!
Stamps – Oh What Fun

Accessories – Big Shot & Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, piercing tools, Curvy Corner Trio Punch, 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Daffodil Delight satin ribbon (retired), Old Olive baker’s twine
I love this card. The brick wall, a perfect outdoor Christmas window scene, the touch of silver and bling, and the white and navy color scheme – I’m not sure what part is my favorite. Maybe it’s the way they all work together.

If you visit the Stampin’ Up! website or Pinterest on a regular basis, chances are you’ve seen an advent tree just like this one made by the talented demo Allison Okamitsu. There are 26 2″x 2″ boxes in total with 25 of them opening to reveal a treat inside. It’s a great way to count down the days til Christmas!
I “needed” to add this tree to my collection of Christmas advents…
and then I thought you might too…
so I’m having a class where you can make one for yourself!
