Happy Friday-Eve! Friday-Eve today brings with it the start of a special month at CASE Study HQ. For the month of December we're embracing and celebrating the wonderful Moxie Fab World, and Miss Moxie Fab herself - Cath Edvalson. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, I'm sure you're aware that Cath recently stepped down from Moxie Fab World blog - but we're here to prove that she's still giving us the ultimate mojo boosts and we've picked a few of our favourite inspirational features to inspire us (and you!).
So cue a month of serious inspiration that you can incorporate in your creativity in an almost infinite amount of ways. This week, we're starting with this inspirational, trendy photo:

I immediately wanted to go with peacock feathers for my project, but with Christmas crafting in full swing I needed to create a gift card holder so took the following elements from the inspirational picture:
- The colours
- The layout (my patterned panel of paper represents the angle of the fabulous, feathery skirt)
It's a pain to photograph my embossed sentiment, so here's a shot from a different angle. You get the idea, right? :)
- I stamped the sentiment twice in a row to get it to fill the slanted angle of the design. This is handy when you don't have a sentiment stamp that you feel is long enough, or you have your mind set on using a particular stamp and need to make it stretch - almost literally!
- Simply change the sentiment, and the snowflake embellishment to create a gift card holder for any guy (or gal) and any occasion.
- The Seed Packet Die holds a gift card perfectly, but you can go one step further and create the perfect minature coordinating card to put in this mini envie too. :)
Well the chaos of Christmas is in full swing: I have next to nothing prepared apart from my cards. It seems like this year I'm really putting the pro into procrastinator. Ha!
