HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS - WEEK 2 - DAY 2

Good afternoon all. Sorry for the late post. We have been busy working and shopping and working and shopping and cleaning and decorating and working and shopping. You get it!! LOL. On Friday night I had the girls over for a Christmas dinner, Kel, Dawn and Susan. I wanted to make place card for the ladies and this what I came up with. I then realized I could use them as a gift card holders as well, so I made some for my nieces.


This is the place card/gift holder. You can't even tell anything is inside (I made this one for my niece Brianna)

















Sneak peek of what's inside.
I cut the card holder from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. Image #31 (sorry I don't know the page number, I re-numbered my pages so I knew exactly where the images are on the overlay). I cut at 10 inches.
I then cut my patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, I Believe stack. This also has a matching ribbon that put across both the patterned paper. The little ticket is also part of the My Mind's Eye collection. The letter is cute from Plantin School Cartridge, and shadowed. I cute at 1 3/4". I have to say I am quite pleased with how it came out.
The one I made for Kel, Dawn and Susan had a Christmas tree inside with Thank you stamped on it.
