Christmas gift card holder




Here is a new gift card holder I saw at our demonstrator meeting last night. I think the idea was brought to us from the Hamilton regionals. If someone wants to clarify, plse send info.

It is made with a strip of 4x12 paper scored at 4 and 8 inches. (cut a 12x12 piece of paper at 4 and 8 inches , giving you 3 strips). There is a diagonal score in the middle square from left top to right bottom. Plse note: if you are using textured paper, turn to the plain side to score, otherwise, the pocket will be on the wrong side.
Fold the score and play with it until you get the pocket. Then decorate the front.

I used the wishing you cheer set. Stamped the snowman, coloured him with Sharpie white paint marker. LOVE IT! THen masked it and stamped some trees. Masked those also and stamped some more trees. TOO MANY TREES!! i was making 9 of these cards at once and only completed 5. TOO MANY TREES. I will change this design when I do it for class.
THe pointsettia flower is from the trio flower punch and the sentiment on the bottom "bulb" is from the set. The sentiment is actually longer, I just used the bottom portion and m[punched it out with a 1 inch circle and then the matting circle. Then attached some ribbon I won at Emily's blog with glue dot and popped it up on a dot!



Here is the inside. Used the be merry stamp from the warm words set. Yes, I know it's my bank card in there. NO! I'm not giving that away as a present. But hey, maybe I can trade ya for a $100 Michael's gift certificate. I would win on that one lol

Thanks for looking. I have amny more ideas in my head, just waiting for the time to get out, so more later,
