I've been on a gift card holder kick as it is getting so close to Christmas and decided to make another one using the stamp set Prancer and the background stamp Flurries. I made the gift card holder using Old Olive cardstock and then stamped the Flurries background in coordinating ink. For the front I made an accordion flower using some matching patterned paper and kept it together in the middle with a off white circle. Prancer was stamped with a deep brown ink and then cut out and popped up off the center. I opted for no sentiment as I think Prancer showcases the front very well all by himself :) Attach some ribbon beneath the flower before gluing on and you've got a perfect way to close your gift holder!
Here is a close up of the beautiful detail on the Prancer stamp...


From here, you're headed to Kendra Wietstock blog.  Enjoy the hop!  Thanks for your comments!  Remember to order your MSS from ihp before Wednesday to get the 15% discount!
