12 Weeks of Holiday Cards

Welcome to Week 11 of my 12 Weeks of Holiday CardsOnly 1 more week left!

Each Wednesday week until Christmas, I will be sharing with you a fun and simple holiday card fit for a quick assembly.  I will share tips, tricks and techniques along the way.  So join me...

Create a Gift Card Holder

For this week, I challenge you to create a gift card holder!

For my card this week , I found a cute little mitten cut file from Silhouette and down sized it to fit a standard sized gift card.  I cut my mitten shape using white cardstock and then stamped my snowflakes and sweater pattern all over them.  I added a simple line of stitching around the edge and added a colourful bow and cut evergreen bough too!

These two teacher cards came together quite quickly and where very easy to create!

Holy Smokes! Can I say that???? lol LOVE those mitten gift card holders too, VERY creative! My Nana used to knit all the grandkids mittens each Christmas, then she would take dollar bills and stick them in the thumbs, so we always knew we were getting warm woolen mitttens and some cash! Now I put the little baby mittens she knitted for my daughter, now 30 years old, on our tree with dollar bills sticking out the top. So sweet! Thanks so much.....off to email you now! Merry Merry!
