Warmest Wishes

I am in the full swing of Christmas this week! I started thinking about gifts and making lists. One thing I always like to keep on hand during the holidays is gift card holders. Here is a card I made that also holds a gift card (it would be perfect for Starbucks or my all-time favorite "The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf") I used the sketch from Unscripted Sketches . I loved the layered look of this sketch.
I've had these mini paper bags for going on 4 years, and decided to stop hoarding and start using! I wanted to add a candy cane to my coffee cup, but didn't have any stamp the right size, so found a digital image in Printshop that worked. I was able to whip up 4 of these cards - I'm feeling really prepared! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Patterned Paper: CTMH (Jingle)
