Crossing Guard Card

Saturday, November 9, 2013
I'm sharing a card over at My Craft Spot today and am posting it here on my blog too. Each Christmas and summer, I create a card for my youngest son's crossing guard.  I actually made this card last Christmas but didn't post it.  

The STOP sign was created on my Gypsy with George and Basic Shapes and Going Places.  I added a little red gem to the top of the sign to mimic the flashing red light on the real thing.  The sweet little snowman is from Hello Kitty Greetings.  I added a bit of super fine glitter to his hat scarf and hat.  After rounding the bottom corners of my card, I used a red marker to "stitch" along the edges. 

The sentiment at the bottom of my card is from My Craft Spot's Think Snow stamp set.  I also created a little tag using My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags metal dies.  I love the variety of little tags in this set.  I choose a scalloped shadow and the little white top layer comes out with a stitched look.  Love it!  On the tag, I stamped a fun little tree from My Craft Spot's Stamping All Around Christmas set.  I finished everything off with some Candy Cane baker's twine.  It's perfect for Christmas projects!


I am SO sorry that this announcement comes so late.  Thanks to all of you who left such kind comments for me during last week's My Craft Spot Stamp Release Blog Hop.  I had meant to post the winner of the metal dies on Monday but have been beyond preoccupied with our upcoming move.  We move on Friday and still haven't found a home that we're happy with - so will be staying with my mum for a bit.  I've also just had a set of essays turned in (I know, bad timing on my part!).  I'm afraid that my blogging will be rather limited for the next couple of weeks.  Anyway, a visit to has revealed that the winner of the Ribbon Banners - Arched metal dies is Kim from Kim's Kreations.  Congratulations Kim!!  Please email me with your shipping details so I can arrange for your prize to be posted.

Darling card, Kate. Good luck with your move. I've had to do the same before, moving in with my parents for a time while relocating. It's not easy to have to store things and then move again for real but it will all work out for the best.
