More Dec Club Projects

My daughter came to visit me from GA the past week and while they were here we went to Opryland Hotel in Nashville to see the Christmas lights and decorations.  I love the poinsetta trees they have there and we got our picture taken in front of one of them.  It's not the best picture of the kids but it's definitely natural!

As promised, here are the other 2 projects we did at our card club this week.  The Baja Breeze snowflake card would be a great card for Christmas or during the snowy months of January and February.  This picture was taken before I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment but you could stamp a birthday greeting or a thinking of you sentiment to send over the Winter months.  We cut the cardstock 4 1/4 X 11" instead of the usual 5 1/2 X 4 1/4" size.  We folded it in half and then folded half of the front back across itself.  It is an interesting fold that is fun to design with.  The stamp set is the Serene Snowflakes set and we used all 4 of the stamps in the set.

The 4th project we did was a gift card holder.   We took a 12X12 sheet of cardstock and cut it at 5 1/2", nearly in half.  We scored the strip of cardstock at 4", 6" and 8" and folded it in a "W" before running it through the Big Shot Machine.  It was placed with the 2 folds just above the cutting blade at the bottom of the "purse" so it was still in one piece when cut out.

The inside sections were adhered together from the back of the card and then the folded edge was punched several times with the Word Window punch to make a slot long enough to insert a gift card.  We added some ribbon, a brad faux closure and a stocking from the Stocking Builders punch and the sentiment is from the Occasions Alphabet set.  The DSP is one of the designs in the Letters to Santa pack.

The last picture shows the inside, I thought I had a Christmas gift card but couldn't find it so I reckon we get pink tulips!
