MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 2


It's day 2 of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas, and today I have a fun gift card wallet that I made with a Lori Whitlock file from the Silhouette Online Store.  I adorned it with some holly leaves made with dies from Boughs of Holly and used some buttons for the berries.


Since I'm putting a gift card in the wallet, I thought it would be fun to make a little card that is the same size as a gift card.  I decorated it with some candy cane stripes using one of the Geo Borders stamps.  Then I added some more of the holly berry die cuts (I just love those!).  Lastly, I pulled out my A Day in December stamp set and stamped the cute circular image with the bell and the fun Naughty/Nice image that is stamped on a little rectangle that I die cut with one of the Square Stitched Goody Dies.


Here's a look at the wallet opened up.  I used velcro as an enclosure.  I first tried some magnetic sheets cut into circles (you can see them underneath), but they weren't strong enough.  Luckily my DT sisters came to my rescue with the velcro suggestion!

  4. Super darling little gift card holder! I am in the process of learning how to use SVG files on my new Cricut Explore I got on Black Friday. I've never been able to do these. They also have
    little magnets that work perfect with these kind of projects! I use them on my little purses!
