Christmas Gift Card Holders

Today I played with the new PTI Gift Card Greetings die...Oh what fun!!
First off I have this adorable snowman (Shape Up Snowman) card holder, this just may be my favorite one of all!
The clear snowfalke behind him is cut with one of  PTI's Damask Snowflake dies...I can't stop using those things!!

The picture below is taken on an angel, I think you get a little better look at the snowflake.The glitter on the edges is  Stickles- Star Dust.
 The card holder below was the first one that I made, at the time I thought that I liked it, but as I kept making them this became my least favorite.
 Below is another favorite of mine! How can you go wrong, houndstooth and glitter!!
 Here is a look at the inside of the holder above.
 This one is kind of a spin off of the gift tags that I posted last week, with the clear cardstock making a little shaker box.
 I love me some Aqua mist and silver at Christmas time.

Christmas Tags

The October PTI release finally put in in the mood to create for Christmas(I hope the bug stays with me)!
I love the demask snowflakes, I have a feeling most of my gift tags will be created using these dies!
 The little images from In The Meadow are perfect for the center of the one demask snowflake die. I just used my limited layers 1.75" circle to cut the center out.
 I also punched  a clear piece of cardstock a little larger than the hole to create a window.
 On the tag below, I used foam tape all the way around the opening to make a shaker box with glitter as my snow.
 My ribbon is seam binding that I ran my new PTI Pure Poppy ink pad over, then I just got my hand a little wet and scrunched it up and let it dry.
 This is my first project using Aqua Mist ink...Love it!!
 The snowflake die (inside snowflake) is from last years Peace Be Still set, stamped with the medium flake from Snowflake Serenade.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope that I  inspired you to make a few tags of your own!!
