Christmas Card Holder

WARNING!! This is a VERY LONG post!! Not because of the writing, but because of the number of pictures ;-)

I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this project, or so I thought ;-) Even though I had a pretty clear idea, it still took me over three hours to put it together!! But.. I absolutely LOVE how it has turned out!!!! I don't think you can ever go wrong with Webster Pages paper!!! It is just too GORGEOUS!!!

This is what we are going to make this coming Thursday at the Make-and-Take at Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale, CA. You will make the card holder and four cards to go in it, envelopes will be included. This event is scheduled for:

Thursday, December 10th, 11 am to 7:30 pm

Cost of this project is $20.00. You can even make more then one if you like to!!

Kits will be available until December 10th, $20 each.

Sign up is not required by is highly recommended as quantities are LIMITED!!! Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the make-and-take and/or to purchase your kit/s.


OK.. I have warned you!! I took TONS of photos to show you all the details of the card holder and also the individual cards :-)











The card holder is sized to fit regular size, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards. I created my own template for the card holder and for the pockets inside.

Webster Pages designer paper. Tag from Spellbinders is used for the closure and there is a Basic Grey magnet that holds the card holder closed. Sentiments on the cards are from Hero Arts clear stamp sets, Christmas Sayings and and Holiday Sayings. Making Memories copper brads.

All supplies used to design this project are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you do not live in the area, you can call the store at 408-736-9151 to make your purchase over the phone.

Hugs!!
