Christmas Challenge

Oh, the weather is lovely here today. Low in the 50s and highs in the 80s. Wonderful! Are you a hot weather person or cold? I like winter more than summer and fall most of all. Spring, too, although we usually don't have much of one! You know I've been doing holiday things lately. I noticed that Paper Sundaes is having a Christmas challenge and I just finished this little gift card holder. One thing that's awesome about it is that it just takes 1/2 of an 81/2 by 11 piece of cardstock. I used a Spellbinder die to create the holder opening for the card.
The inside stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms (which I understand is closing.) The decorative paper on the front is from Collage Press. I ran white cardstock through my snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder to create the snow. I tucked the elf house behind the snow and the little guys in the front are set up with pop dots. The snowflake punch is Martha Stewart.
I love the bells and silver chenille stem added to the button and tied with baker's twine!
The little elves are from a vintage card. Hope you had nice weather today! Here's to a great start to a great weekend!
