Countdown to Christmas!

Hello everyone!  With only a few more days until Christmas, I was a crafting maniac this weekend trying to finish a few last minute gifts.  So get ready for some fun this week.  :)

First up this week, I made this super cute gift card holder.  I used my Cameo and cut this Santa Claus Gift Card Holder from Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Online Store.  Isn't he cute?!?  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  

For the sentiment, I used the MCT ~ Boughs of Holly and Memento Luxe ~ Wedding Dress ink.  Isn't that so cool how it slides in and out like that?!?!  Love it!!

To decorate the Santa, I used Yellow ~ Stickles on his belt buckle and Star Dust ~ Stickles on his hat.  If you look closely, you can see that I added a bit of a cotton ball to make the ball on his hat a little more realistic.  I cut the holly leaves using the MCT ~ Boughs of Holly.  And then I added a couple of red gems for the berries.

Well that's it for me today.  I hope you like this fun way to dress up a gift card holder.  Cute! Cute! Cute! Have a great day everyone!  I will see you all again tomorrow.

Santa is so sweet and I like the holly and berries. Great cut and clever way to give a gift card. I would think this holder could be an ornament after the gift is opened. How cute!
