Potbellies for Christmas

I just got these fun Potbellie dies from PTI - and I couldn't wait to use them!  There are three different dies  reindeer, penguin and Santa -  this one is the Potbellies: Reindeer die.   
The way the die cuts under the arms - makes a perfect slot to fit in a gift card!   The gift card stamp is from Gift Card It by Waltzingmouse (retired) and the Merry Christmas is from Penned Elegance: Christmas stamps and dies from PTI.

All of the Potbellies dies are sold out -  but if you click on 'notify' over at PTI they will let you know when they are back in stock.
I also made some shaker cards using the Potbellies: Penguin die and clear bubbles large.  The stamp is from Around Christmas Time from Waltzingmouse (retired). On both cards, I cut an extra body and adhered it to the back at the head, scoring at the neck so it bends to stand up.
I'm linking my reindeer to:
inspired by the red and brown colors and the silver reindeer holding a place card in it's antlers!

These are adorable!! I love that the penguin is a shaker card!! Are they really wide enough to hold a gift card? They must be larger than they look.

Yes, that gift card panel is the size of a real gift card Sharli! He is 4” x 6 1/2” so needs a larger envelope. The penguin fits in a regular A2 envelope but you couldn’t mail it with the shaker!
