Winter Sparkles

Winter Sparkle Frame
I love the bling in this winter picture, it's like new glistening snow without all the mess of the snow.  This Winter Sparkle home decor item was a hit at my Christmas Buffet earlier in the month.  Many people may be receiving this beauty for Christmas this year.  It so elegant but so quick and easy to put together, just a few stamped images and lots of silver glitter cardstock.

Gift Card Holder

Nativity Gift Card Front
Sorry for the delay in a new post — I've been busy making gift cards.  I needed cards for work — 72 of them in fact.  I'm very pleased with how these turned out and am very glad they are all done.  The card is made using the Envelope Punch Board.  That's right, so many uses for that tool.  You punch a "flap" on the edge of the card that tucks together for a fun file folder edge.  And then you just left the flap to expose the gift card pocket and greeting.

Nativity Gift Card Inside
I hope the recipient enjoys the card and the gift inside too.
