MCT 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~ DAY 6

Hello there again! And WELCOME to day SIX of the My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Glora's blog, then you are headed in the right direction! If not, please start at Emma's blog HERE!

***12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY ALERT***
To qualify for ALL of the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tuesday, December 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S! There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event and some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Times's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!

Now...onto my project!

Miss Emma also has a FABULOUS "Gift Card Holder" die! And I use it for a lot of quick projects. For Christmas, I always end up purchasing a TON of gift cards. With a gift card you can never give the wrong gift! So I decided to make today's project another super simple one, especially for those last minute gift givers! (Like me!) With just a few different colors of papers and ribbons, you can make these customized gift card holders in a matter of minutes!


The paper is PaperTrey Ink and DCWV Christmas Combo paper stack. I used the My Creative Time "Gift Card Sentiments" for the sentiments. And then stamped "to" and "from" on the inside with the same stamp set. I forgot to take a pic of that though. :) I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and some sheer ribbon from Hobby Lobby to tie them up.




You can view and purchase all of the My Creative Time stamps and dies HERE!!

Your next stop in the hop is the AMAZINGLY talented KATIE!!

Blog Hop Line Up:
Emma - Start here!
Jeanne - That's me!
