Holiday Gift Card Holder or nine!

Hello, well today was a typical Monday for sure! Had one of those days that stuff just kept going nutty! Ever have one of those days?!

I worked all day long on the project I am about to share! I made 9 gift card holders for a swap that I am in! I am very attached to the wonderful ladies in this group and so it was a labor of love! I thought these would go super quick, but of course underestimated the time thing yet again! I used one of the Timeless Templates by Lauren Meader to make these. She is really talented! I used holiday colors plus a splotch of blue! :) I cut each one out and embossed it with snowflakes from SU!'s Serene Snowflakes. I used a gold marker pen to color the edges with a gold trim and made some holly berries to go on each tag from a leaf punch and red sparkle gems. The insert slides out to reveal a gift card and there is a Christmas sentiment once the gift card is removed! I used the slit punch to make a holder for each gift card. They were fun to make!












Nice thing about gift cards is that one size fits all! :) I am really anxious to send these out and get the swaps in return! I am sure they will all be amazing! :)

Ok, I am calling it a night. I am ready to put this stinky day to bed and am hoping to wake up to a much brighter one tomorrow! :) Have a great night! I will see you soonest! :)
