Gift Cards

I love when someone
gives me a gift card, and better yet... I LOVE to give them!

I need to have several 
holders made for Christmas, so I started this morning with this one. Why does something so simple take me so long? Over embellishing perhaps? 

I cut out this pocket
using Alterations Pocket Envelope die and Basic Grey Oxford "Lacrosse" paper. The image is cut from Echo Park's This & That Christmas "Holly Berries" backside. The stack of die cuts are... in order from the bottom... Spellbinders Large Classic Circles, Alterations Mini Tickets, Alterations Tattered Pinecone (made this into a rose) and Alterations Mini Holly. The two Cherry blossoms are I Am Roses, that I sprayed with LSG Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz. The French Lace paper doily is from an Etsy shop, the satin snowflake is trim from May Arts and the rhinestone is by Teresa Collins.

The tag slips into the
pocket and holds the gift card with a glue dot.
I hope you are getting
all the last of your shopping, baking, etc, etc, etc finished. Wow... I still have a lot to do!!! 
Enjoy the fun and blessings of making something nice for those you love!

These are very creative. Lots of yummy layers. I just love the papers you used.

I am all ready for Christmas! I made sure I had everything done so I could just sit and visit my Daughter and Son In-law and Myles while they are here. They sound be here later today! :)
