Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Less than 2 months left until Christmas!! Have you started, finished or are in the middle of your shopping?? Well, how about playing in this month's challenge and you can scratch another gift off your list?

This month, I want you to use Nina's Gable Box (click here for the free template) - I also added it as an attachment to the thread) and you will get a BONUS entry for including a handmade ORNAMENT inside. The dimensions of the ornament can be up to 2 3/4" wide and 4 1/2" high. Here is the link to the tutorial Nina has on her blog with how to use the template.

Here is the Gable Box I made using Nina's new set Vintage Borders and Baby's First Christmas ornament I made using my nephew's picture from last year. I just covered a chipboard coaster cut down to 2 3/4" by 4" with Good as Gold cardstock cuttlebugged with textile folder and used a crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top to put the gold cord through and added a burgundy ribbon bow. It was easy but I know my sister will cherish it FOREVER. I like to make those kind of simple gifts from the heart and hope you are inspired to as well. On the back, I stamped with the new Signed with Love stamps with the date I made it. Sorry I forgot to take a picture of it.

Please be sure this is a NEW project you make & upload for your chance to win!! You will have until November 30tht at 11:59 p.m. CST to upload your project to win a Gina K Designs stamp set valued at $24.95 or less. Please use TAG 3dnovember09 so we can quickly find your creation. As always, you don't have to use Gina K stamps but if you do - you get your name entered TWICE in the drawing! Have fun creating!!

Love the Gable box, the ornament and your nephew looks sooooo cute on this picture!! I hope this time there will be more people doing the 3D challenge. ;)
Donna, your nephew is so precious. :o) That frame looks so cool with the embossed gold card stock. And your box is beautiful. I will try to participate in this one. I've not stamped to much lately. Sickness and too much stress from work. Thanks for hosting.
Here is mine from the Previews:
