Santa Paws

Oh, Christmas is over and I hate to have to put up my tree.
We were late getting it up this year, so maybe I will wait til next weekend to take it down ;-)

Tonight I made a very quick gift card holder.  I was inspired by the Designers Choice Challenge1218 at The House that Cards Built.

I used some really cute old SEI dp called "Park Buddies".  It's double-sided, which works great for this cardholder design.  I stamped the dog house image (Craft Lounge) with Memento, colored it with Copics, fussy cut it and then used 3M foam tape to mount it.  I stamped the sentiment (Memory Box) with COlorBox fluid chalk Warm Red and mounted it with foam tape on the doghouse.  Tied a ribbon around it and ta da, done!  Aren't gift cards great???Here's a picture of the inside:

  1. What a clever little card. Santa Paws…never saw that sentiment but it's adorable. So is the "attack hug" inside. I want a stamp like that!

  2. I agree, gift cards make gift giving so much easier!! Made all the more special too, when dressed up in a handmade holder. Love your project and the Santa Paws sentiment is really cute! Thanks for playing at JAI
