3 Days till Christmas

Good Morning & Happy Wednesday!

Yup, 3 days till the big day! I cannot wait!
So, what did some of you ask Santa for this year? I'm sure most of you know what I would like but most of all world peace! I want no wrapped presents or flowers....I just wanna go home.

But anyways, that's a whole other story! Today, I would like to share with you a little gift card holder I made. I'm sooo liking this one! I based my gift card holder off this treat container I got at Micheal's when they marked down all their Christmas stuff.
Take a look...

I cut the image out with the Oval Nestibilities and where the embossed part is I used my Gold Krylon Pen and went around the outside edge with it. I seen someone else do it and just thought to try it, Wow does it ever make it pop! I used SU Brushed Gold Cardstock on the gift card with some sparkly red sheer ribbon I got at one of the Amish stores for $2 a roll. The paper bow on top was made with SU Oval Punches and all glued together. It's a neat little trick Vicki showed me.....Thanks Vicki!!

Gift Card Holder:

Stamps: Bundle Up Mike from Whipper Snapper
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Real Red, Brushed Gold, PTI White
Accessories: SU Oval Punches, SU Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Krylon Gold Leaf Pen, Sparkly Red Ribbon, Scor Tape

Well, that's all for me today!
I hope to do some stamping today since all my work is caught up but we'll see! LOL

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Happy Holidays!!
