PPC Specialty Challenge #2 - Anything Christmas!

Good Monday morning!! Five more sleeps...can you BELIEVE it?! Wow...comin' fast it is. I am pretty much ready for the big day - the weekend was spent wrapping and sorting everything out as far as gifts and cards etc. I have a bit more baking to do and that's about it. Yay!

Megan has a special challenge for you this week over at Picture Perfect Creations - Anything Christmas Related. Here's the photo she has for some inspiration if you need it:

For this challenge, I decided to show you the gift card holders I made this year. I got the idea from a friend of mine who was looking through a CardMaker magazine :) These are full-size cards and the pocket for the gift card is on the front. Aren't they cute? I made a couple designs using the Jolly Holiday Designer Paper:

Stamps: All Year Cheer (retired); Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Jolly Holiday DP; Ink: Cherry Cobbler; Accessories: circle punches, scallop circle punch, scallop trim border punch, cobbler seam binding, dimensionals

I am entering my cards into the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas Related
Creative Belli Blog - Christmas Embellishments
Fresh Brewed Blog - Merry Christmas
Stamp Something - Something with a Tag or Pocket

Be sure to hop on over to the rest of the PPC Design Team blogs and leave them each some lovin'...they've made some gorgeous Christmas creations just for you! (Links are on my righthand sidebar)
