Criss Cross Gift Card Holder

Hello!  It's less than four weeks before Christmas, people!  Yikes...

I'm sure a lot of gift cards are going to be handed out this holiday season, so I've created a gift card holder that can be used for this purpose.  I made it using the criss-cross card as its base.


This card/gift card holder is smaller than my normal 6" x 6" card--it is only 4.5" x 4.5". 



The two adorable images are from Magnolia's previous year's Christmas collection--I love that collection--a favorite of mine. 


- Tilda With Two Little Gifts from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012


- Tilda With Lovikkamittens from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012

The stamps for these two cute Tildas are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies from various companies and other crafting supplies.

Challenges for this gift card holder:
Bearly Mine Challenge #114 - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions Challenge - IIC #136 Presents and Gifts
Divas By Design - Use some red
Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #73 - Holidays

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.  I very much appreciated your visit.   Have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest f your week.
