2015 Christmas Cards

I had so much fun making these cards!  That's a good thing because I made over 50 of them!!  I used Schell's Joy Fold instructions from her 2015 Mickey and Minnie Card Series.  Go check it out here:  Her videos are awesome and so easy to follow!

Black Cardstock - Recollections
Patterned Paper - There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays from The Paper Studio
Glitter Paper - Die Cuts With a View
Cream Cardstock (sentiments and inside panel) - Colonial White by Close To My Heart
Inks - Ponderosa Pine by Close To My Heart (retired color - sorry) and Versafine Onyx Black (embossed with clear embossing powder by Ranger)
Spellbinders Lacey Ovals Die
Spellbinders Large Ovals Die
Sentiment - Holiday Tags D1560 from Close To My Heart and Glory D1483 (retired set)

Gift Card Holders

For something as simple as a gift card holder I cannot believe I used so many different supplies!!  I started with an idea I found on Pinterest that did not lead to an actual web page (grrr!) so I can't give credit.  If you know who designed this, please let me know so I can give them credit.  Don't you just hate it when Pinterest takes you to just an image with no details?

Supply List:
Red Cardstock - Recollections - cut at 3.75" x 11" and scored at 3" and 7.5"
Glitter Paper - Die Cuts With a View
Gift Paper - The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) - cut at 2.75" x 3.5"
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby
Snowflake Die - Spellbinders
Scalloped Circle Punch - Fiskars
Circle Punch (for the inside notch) - The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)
Snowflake Embossing Folder - Darice (Hobby Lobby)
Fancy edge on front - Spellbinders Labels Ten Nestabilities (partially die cut)
Adhesives - Scotch ATG, large glue dots, and 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives

I told you it was a lot of supplies!!  I also used my awesome CutterPillar and my Big Shot (with both my extended plates and my magnetic plate) so I pretty much used all my tools except for my Cameo or Cricut.  Although the original plan for these gift card holders did use a cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and a CTMH stamp set but the tags I created just didn't fit these holders so they will get used on Christmas presents under the tree instead.  I'll try to get some pics of those and post the info.
