Welcome back to Blog Hop day!
This week's die is the Bigz XL Gift Card Holder, Pop-up, which is one of the most quick and easy pop-up dies to assemble.
It also has a built-in greeting and a useful purpose.
It really ought to have been easy to create something this week.
It is, after all, my own die design.
It kicked my hiney.
I had a grand plan that involved the GCH cut out of transparency with an elegant prancing reindeer seemingly suspended in the sky. It could work. I know it could work.
But not if I start at 11 pm and don't have the proper weight transparency.
Then, alas, gravity rules.
The reindeer survived, though. He is now prancing atop a more traditional card, which is probably for the best anyway. Plus, I have inadvertently proven my own point about this die going together quickly, since I created this card from start to finish in the last hour.
