CUTE GIFT CARD HOLDERS

Hi All!!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!! I had my craft fair yesterday and it went VERY well, I am quite pleased!!! I am also glad it's over - LOL! Here is a project I made recently to hold gift cards, aren't they cute?! My kids are already asking if THEY get one of these little guys - they are such nosy little things, lol! I made these using my new stamp set called Holiday Lineup that I earned as a incentive gift from my upline Kimberly - she is a wonderful friend, and a fabulous upline (hello, can you say NUMBER SEVEN in the company??!!!!!) who always has something positive to share, I just love her! So, I was excited to get to use these totally cute stamps!!! Each holder has two pockets - one for a little 3x3 card and one for the actual gift card or money, whatever floats your boat!! Here is a picture of what the inside looks like:


See how the little cards just slided right in there? It takes a kind of impersonal gift and makes it more personal! Here is a pic of the holder with the matching card that is inside: I love the snowmen in the Holiday Lineup set and using Deer Friends with it just seemed like the perfect match!! Lastly, here is a picture of the actual Gift Card Holder up close and personal! I love the Baha Breeze colors for winter, they just seems to make me think of snow!! I hope you like this project, I will leave you the recipe below! I am off to lie down, seems I have caught a bug so today will be a rest day for me!! Hope you all get some time to stamp something fun today - see ya tomorrow!
