Christmas Gift Cards

 Sometimes when presented with a challenge happy accidents create a better product than the original idea or shall I say three. This design will make a gift card holder, tag, and note. Funny thing is I started out making thank you cards but, my mind went blank as to cutting out the letters in the card. UGH! Of course when I completed the 3 cards in one project I remembered the way to cut a shape plus text at one time. If I added the thank you it would narrow the use of the card. This card can absolutely be used as a thank you note hence it should be the 4 in 1 card project. :)

This part of the blog is easier to see in pictures than words. Once you click on the link you will see this on your device. The Joy of the Season I purchased at a cost of .99 cents from the Design Space. You can see the Font is free from Cricut and the name is on the image below.

Once you begin the project you will see this on your screen leading you through  step by step instructions. 

Below you can see the two coordinated cardstock my craft stash. The scoring tool is placed in the Cricut Explore Air 2. On the cutting mat is a green plaid providing the contrast needed to make the design pop. 

The Gold hint holly pattern of this cardstock gives the card made with this paper prominent a upscale look.

Who else loves the hum of the Cricut cutting out the slightest detail of projects? Knowing that sound saves me time while allowing me to create incredible work make my heart want to sing.
While I used glue on this project as shown below that is not the best solution to adhere the card together because the moisture absorbs into the cardstock. I would recommend using glue tape.

Make several of these cards so you will have them for quick gift giving. These cards are perfect for tucking a gift of cash, a gift card, or use a hole punch to make a gift tag for a present. After the holidays you can use these cards for thanking all those who gave you a gift for the holidays.
