Merry Christmas!

It's hard to believe it is that time of year again!  All of the hustle and bustle and then it is over!  I wanted to wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season.

In the spirit of the holiday season I wanted to share a little last minute gift card holder.  I have had this little file on my Silhouette Cameo for quite a while and have finally had the opportunity to use it.  It came together pretty quickly and I love the result.  The pattern paper is from Papertrey Ink's Pure Poppy collection.  The kraft cardstock is from the Recollection brand.  I find that it is the perfect weight to use in my Cameo.

I have to admit I have had a love-hate relationship with that little machine.  It seems I could never get the right combo of paper weight and blade depth.  All of the little things that everyone has cut out with their Cameo seems to look fantastic.  Mine usually looks like a shredded mess!   I don't know if it is just me or if others have had this problem but it had me so frustrated to the point that I didn't use the thing at all!  I finally played around with it and I still have some issues to work out but I am happy that I was able to get something cut out!!  This is by no means perfect, but it sends the holiday message, with a little treat tucked inside too!  Hope you like it!

 I added a little red Stickle for the nose.  Just enough sparkle!!

The Silhouette file can be found here:

Merry Christmas Amy! I don't have a cameo....just not convinced I would utilize it enough to purchase one? I like my dies and don't do that many "multiples" projects.

Your gift card holder is adorable! Love the red glitter nose - the perfect finishing touch!
