12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 10 ~Episode 289


Happy Saturday! Welcome to day 10 of our 12 days of Christmas blog hop! I can't believe there are only 2 days left:(  For today's project, I used my FAVORITE die called "Embossed Gift Card Holder"!
I made it SUPER SIMPLE & elegant for you today! I used the "Gift Card Sentimets" stamp set for the sentiment. The pretty blue wired ribbon & embellies came from Michaels & Hobby Lobby! To learn how to make a bow like this, you can see how in this video HERE!

Here is how it looks on the inside w/the gift card in it!;) I also used my snowflake cuttlebug folder to emboss my gift card holder time!;)

Here is a quick video for you!;)
