Be watching for another chance to join a Mystery Hostess Party!  Don't want to wait?  Be your own Hostess today!   Call me and book yours today.

Now, I want to share with a cute way to make a gift card holder!  I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge to make this holder.  It was very simple!  The Cricut cuts the card and it folds so that you can slip a gift card inside!

I set the cricut to cut at 5".  I recycled an old gift card so my card is a little thick. This size worked well.   If inserting a regular card you can use 4 3/4" measurement.  "Merry Christmas" is also cut using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  I set the measurement to 2".  

To recycle my old gift card, I covered the front and back with Cashmere Cardstock.  I used the now retired Friendship Alphabet for my amount.   

For fellow Close To My Heart Consultants that want to know..... "Close To My Heart" was stamped with my Consultant Stamp using the masking technique to cover the rest of the information on the stamp.

For the back of the card, I ran a piece of Cashmere Cardstock through my printer and then cut the individual back pieces to apply to the card. This is what the back looks like:

These gift card holders were a SNAP to make.   They make a great way to dress up of gift card!
