This is a 4 x 5.5 gift card holder. I got the idea from a video I saw (can't remember where it was!). I liked this holder since it was a card as well. Several people this year are getting gift cards and this came in handy.
The lace ribbon is from a Martha Stewart punch.The Christmas ornament is from Joys of the Season cut at 2 inches(Ornament <Garland>).
Here is the basic layout for the card, cutting and folding ....

Well, its that time of year. I've been busy creating Christmas cards. I had several ideas, and made 7 sample cards. My goal this year was to make cards that were quick and easy. Here is the first of several cards I will be posting over the next several weeks.
This card is 4 x 5.5 inches. All of the cuts are from the Winter Woodland cartridge. The snowflake and background are all <Snowflk 4>, cut at 3.25 inches. The lighter green is the shadow feature, the darker green is the blackout feature, the snowflake is the layer, and the red is the shift.
For the background I used the Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder, and used the I-Rock tool to add a bit of sparkle.
