Make It Monday - Challenge #206 - Take Your Pick

Hi again and thanks for sharing your day with the Kraft Journal.

I think the new year is about changing things up and today we have something new, Challenge #206 - Take Your Pick!  All you have to do is pick three things from the list below and use them in your card design .

Take a look at what the Design Team came up with!
Karen Letchworth
Karen was excited when she saw this week's "Take Your Pick" Challenge.  She chose White, Glitter and Snowman as her Three Picks.  Karen decided to make a gift card holder so that she could send a gift card to her niece and nephews in Minnesota to buy a new sled.  She started her project with a sweet Mini Kraft Polka Dot Merchandise Bag which is the PERFECT size for tucking in a gift card.  She attached a few chipboard pieces including a snowman on his sled, a snowflake, and a sentiment.  Each of the chipboard pieces was dusted with glitter.
She also tucked in a card for journaling a little note to the kids which was cut from a piece of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock.  She inked the edges of that, and added a bow made from Red Baker's Twine and Natural Hemp Cord.  The Kraft Journal has LOTS of great bags for creating gift card holders.  For a complete supply list for Karen's project, you're welcome to stop by Karen's blog, My Cup Runneth Over.

Marsha Drain 
For our "Take Your Pick" challenge, Marsha chose (1)patterned paper, (2) die cut, and (3) glitter.  She never uses loose glitter but does love Stickles so she used that on the flame, the die cut snowflakes, and if you look really closely you can see little dots of it on most of the snowflakes on the patterned paper.  She started her card with Light Kraft Cardstock.  The sentiment is printed on Light Kraft Text weight paper. This is such pretty patterned paper with the Kraft colored (IRL) snowflakes as well as the blue flakes - a perfect paper for the Kraft base.  For a few more details about this card, please visit her blog, Gramma's Room. 

Use this week's theme to inspire you to create your project and then link it up at the bottom of this post before 6:00pm (Central Time) on Sunday. Please limit your entries two per challenge.
