Merry Christmas!

from my family to yours! We celebrated Mattson Christmas last night and fun was had by all. My dad loved the "I'm a lumberjack, and I'm ok T-shirt." My niece went bananas for her cowboy boots and a pink vacuum. My nephews tried to trick Bubba by wrapping his present in Green Bay Packer Duct Tape, not knowing that I had wrapped their money gift in layers of bubble wrap and tape! My mom got her new magnetic plate from my dad (wrapped by me). He asked her, "What is that?" when she opened it! My sister loved her new sparklies and her gifts from her kids. Don, well, he loves everything, but the beer, little debbie snacks, and fast food gift cards were a hit, as well as the Bears fleece my mom sewed.  Me? I enjoy every minute of being with my family and now feel ready to face what comes our way this next year! The gifts are secondary, but getting coffee and a jar decorated in Stampin' Up! rub-ons top the list! Oh yeah, and the fleece sweater my mom sewed for me. That was pretty cool, too!

Now, back to the good stuff:

I made the envelopes gift card sized so I could add gift cards as needed!

Stamps: Festive Flurry
Paper: Winter Frost Paper Stack, Winter Frost Designer Series Paper, Smokey Slate, Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo
Accessories: Envelope Punch Board, Big Shot, Festive Flurry Framelits, Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Snow Flurry Embossing Folder

I just made the card base with a die cut and then added the envelope. I had to add a strip of paper to make the paper stack pieces 5 x 5 square so the envelopes could be made. This little bit of problem solving, added a little extra design element to the card. I love the little stripe of alternating paper!

I think my nephews would have preferred that I put gift cards in these instead of wrapping up the money in layers of tape!

Happy Stamping!
