ABC Monday!!


Anything But a Card Monday, that is.... Today I thought I'd do a Christmas gift card holder for ya! Now this is SUPER simple, and I can just see you makin' a ton of these in no time. Seriously!!

Ok, first of all HERE'S where you can find the pattern for the gift card holder itself. Just download the free PDF file and cut the pattern pieces from both your CS and DP. I put a small velcro closure under the flap so it was easier to open and close.


Next, I printed Fruitcake Stella from the Stella Christmas line at Bugaboo Stamps and colored her with my Copics. I punched her out with my circle punch and stitched her onto the SU Real Red scalloped circle. I tied this grosgrain ribbon in a cute bubbly bow and that's it! I mean, really quick and SUPER cute too! Woo-hoo!! I love that!

This is the inside... (snort!)
Did I ever tell you my middle name is GRINCH?? LOL!!

You're a MEAN ONE Mrs. Grinch!!
Have a MAH-VELOUS Monday!
{{{hen hugs}}}

Supplies:
Digital Image - Bugaboo Stamps; CS - SU Real Red; Brads; Copics; DP - Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather; Punch - EK Success; Nestabilities; Ribbon - PTI
