Christmas is Coming

Christmas is coming... and if you're like me, every year there are some individuals to whom you give cash or gift cards. This year I decided instead of buying those cute little gift card holders, I'd make my own. What a fun and easy project!

I've used one of Inktegrity's NEW RELEASE images - Classy Shopper for the focal image of my gift card holder. She is just adorable, holding her shopping bag.
I had some money designer paper in my stash, so I had to use that, and of course I thought the real penny was the perfect embellishment in the middle of the sentiment (another image from the newly-released INKTEGRITY stamp company). Here's the link to the Inktegrity store: http://www.shophandmade.com/Store/Joni where you can buy these newly released images!

In the picture, you can see I'm giving cash, but the same holder also works perfectly for a gift card.

I did a google search to find a tutorial on making these gift card holders. Here's the link to the one I chose to use: http://whoopsiedaisy-jane.blogspot.com/2009/02/pop-up-gift-card-holder-tutorial.html

Please be sure to also check out the blogs of the other Inktegrity Design Team members today. They are all featureing Inktegrity images in celebration of the new release of stamps which have just become available today.

Have fun shopping... remember Christmas is coming!
