Christmas Stocking.....

Something a bit different today, the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp challenge is Shaped card/creation - no squares! Well this was a perfect opportunty to try this template for a gift card holder out. It came from Claire Brennan's blog (I think the template is available on Splitcoast stampers somewhere). I make several wallets each year at Christmas for family members who have gifts of money or gift cards so here is the first one.

These are really easy to make and make a nice change from cards plus you can use up lots of scraps which has to be a good thing.

I am also entering this into Stamptacular Sunday challenge which is Hot Pockets.

I can't remember what papers these are as they were in the scraps box, stamps are by Waltzing Mouse,  satin ribbon and bakers twine from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the snowflake is recycled from a Christmas present last year.

Thanks for looking
