Xmas in July

Hi there friends,
I made a gift card holder for a Christmas In July Sassy Design Studio Challenge. It will also fit some other challenges this week. I love the colors of these K&Co papers I bought last Christmas. They are 4 x6" mat papers that work pretty well for card making because of the small scale prints.

The tag sticking out of the top of the cup shaped holder will hold a gift card. I'll attach it to the tag with some glue dots. The colors are non-traditional but my daughter thought they went well with the modern SSD image and I agree. It was fun to make this even though I dread the holiday! LOL!
Hugs, Kim

  1. Kim, this is so lovely! You chose the perfect image for the cup template, and I adore the non-traditional colors you used! Plus the gingham ribbon, Martha Stewart punch and pearls all make me very happy! Another wonderful creation! :)

  2. Wow that's super. Very original work. Thanks for entering the creative inspirations challenge this week.

  3. Hi Kim
    OMG what a gorgeous card, and I love the untraditional colors. That teacup shape is awesome, did you design it yourself? Thanks for participating in our challenge this week at SSD.
    I just have to say it again, just beautiful!
