Merry Christmas - Christmas is July

Hi Everyone!
Ok, I must admit making Christmas projects in 80 degree weather does seem strange. Nonetheless I have created a couple gift card holders for the many gift cards we give the teenagers in the family. Pretty simple design. I used the pocket card from TBBM and welded a rectangle to the top to give it a little more height.
I sure hope you get inspired to get a jump start on Christmas projects and join some fun challenges:)

Not quite sure why the color looks off on the trim at the bottom, it is the sames paper as the other reds??

This is the tag pulled out with plenty of room for a gift card and sentiment.
Holder - 5.25" x 4"
Cricut Cartridges - TBBM
Paper - Recollections
Trims - MS Punches
Stickles
Machine stitched
Challenges:
Jaihart - Sunday are lovely

Beautiful gift card holders!!! Awesome papers used for this project. Always nice to have these on hand for the holidays! I have not been able to motivate myself into doing Christmas cards...oh, so much to do right now. Just not happening, eek!

Hope your enjoying your summer. Not sure where it's gone. I can not believe we are creeping up on Aug. Time is flying!
Have a great Sunday mu friend!! Oh yeah, guess what...found my shoes! I sure wish I could have taken you and Lisa with shopping-we would have had a blast although I am pretty sure I would have come home with a few more pairs than I did due to you guys enabling me, haha!
