Christmas Gift Card Holder

Hi all,

Time again for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More, our theme being CHRISTMAS! Nice and easy as I'm sure most folk have been busy doing some sort of Christmas crafting.

This is my final DT post for Crafty Cardmakers as I am stepping down after a most enjoyable 2 years. My decision has come mainly from the fact that I do very little cardmaking now, I'm going through a "sewing" phase and I'm also volunteering at the local family history centre to help transcribe the 1911 census, so it's just a case of the usual "not enough hours in the day"!

I'm not totally disappearing though, I'll still be loitering in blogland visiting you fellow crafters.

Anyways, I have made a selection of Christmas Gift Card Holders.  It's a nice quick simple design which makes two holders from one A4 sheet.

All the fronts were covered with some Christmas DP and most have a simple Merry Christmas sentiment, embossed in silver and mounted onto miri card.  I also used a Tim Holtz santa stamp and a Hero Arts snowman stamp.

To make two holders from one A4 sheet, cut at 11 cm and 22 cm on the long side of the sheet.  This gives you two strips measuring 21 cm x 11 cm.

Score at 8.5 cm and 17 cm.  The second score forms the pocket.

I then just added a circle of white card for writing on.

If you have an envelope board maker, a 6 3/4" square, scored at 3", makes the correct sized envelope.

Our sponsors for this challenge are SIR STAMPALOT

and also DT member Kim has donated a fabulous crafty bundle of goodies.

Well that's it from me for today, I hope you are all further advanced in your Christmas preparations than I am.  I've only just started shopping and also this weekend decided to redecorate my living room.  A nice quick freshen up I thought, but as always it turns about to be a bigger job than expected. Couldn't get the blooming wallpaper off the wall, thankfully it's only on one wall.  I'm also intending making some cushion covers to fit my new colour scheme so I'll definitely be burning the midnight oil between now and the 24th. Lol!

P.S. I've just noticed that google verification has randomly appeared in my comment box.  I do not have verification switched on! I've just tested it and you can still leave a comment without filling in the verification box, so just ignore it!

Okay, thanks for popping in,
Bye for now
