Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge #27 - red, green and your choice of neutral

We have another challenge for you today at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp this time around we are asking to to use the colours red and green with your choice of neutral. These colours lend themselves to Christmas, but you will see from the samples from the DT that these colours also look fab on any other type of card. This card also fits in with the challege at Stampin for the Weekend where they are looking for you to use red, green and gold on your cards, and lastly All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge are looking for anything Christmas.

I have a few gift-cards to give as Christmas presents this year as lots of the kids are now getting older and like to choose their own clothes etc, so I decided to make a giftcard holder this week. The digi images that I have used are both from CC Designs and the papers are by Making Memories (I think). The little tree charm is one that I picked up ealier in the year in the States.

I have used the same papers on the inside also and the trees were cut out from a piece of the DP.

These little holders are so simple to make. I piece of doubled sided paper 11" x 4.5" which is then scored 3" in from both sides and also down the centre. I have used a nestability to cut the aperture for slipping the giftcard in - but it could be cut by hand of by using any punch. I have then attached the ribbon to the base of holder before adding the mat on the front and back.

The cute little Santa I have been good sentiment was also cut from the same set of DP.

I hope you have a good weekend.

I am putting our Christmas tree up at home tomorrow - a bit earlier than usual, but I want to get the good of it before we head off on holiday.

I put the one in the office up on Wednesday so we are looking really quite festive and have already received a couple of Christmas cards at work.
