Matchbook fold card & Sheep tag!

Welcome to our Joy's Life stamps 
monthly blog hop!

Joy's Life.com

If you're hopping with us today, you'll want to 
start @ Joy's Life blog! 

I created a matchbook fold card...with an Action Wobble chick! Too fun!

Joy's Life stamps (Barnyard Puns),
Action Wobble spring, Chicken wire bg stamp,
Cricut Craftroom - Create a Critter Freebie
Cricut - Plantin Schoolbook, pg 69 <grass> cut @ 1 inch.

The card front tucks in between the bottom flap & the grass for a secure fit!  easy peasy but adds a bit of interest!

Here's another fun idea!  

I made a shaped tag the other day for a simple gift I crocheted.

I'm still using the $2.00 baskets I purchased @ Goodwill last year.  They make such a nice presentation for home-made gifts!

Cuttlebug embossing folder, baker's twine,
embossing powder, Memento ink,
Cricut - My Quiet Book, sheep cut @ 4"

I cut two 'fluffy' layers for both sides of my sheep, so his backside isn't naked!

Thanks so much for stopping by, you're next 
hop stop is Lori @ Got 2B Crafting!

The winner from last month's hop candy
Diana Martin! Congratulations!!

Why have I never made a matchbook fold card? That is so cute and smart! I adore it! Wow, great stamping on the front of that card too. I'm super impressed! Should I comment on how I'm impressed that you crochet first, or that you got a basket like that for $2? LOL! Great project, Maria. Thanks for being in the 3D Animal & Card Folds blog hop!
Super Hugs,

Maria, I love how you took an ordinary match book fold and spiced it up with the grass & chickie! Super cute! Also, giving a crochet gift is even more special with that basket & adorable tag!!!

What cute projects and I agree that the baskets make a nice took. I just giggled when I read your comment that we didn't want his backside to be naked....that WOULD be a tragedy and ruin such an adorable gift! :-) Still smiling! TFS.Live4scrappin

Little Chick is so cute on your matchbook card! Leaving room to tuck the flap behind the grass was a good idea... And the sheep tag is adorable!
