Melissa Makes a Christmas Gift Card Envelope – STAMPlorations Mixed Media Tutorial – December 2017

Hi!  Are you in need of a last minute Christmas gift or 2? Still feeling a little crafty? It’s not too late to make a beautiful and useful gift card holder! I’m sharing a new tutorial at STAMPlorations.
I hope that you enjoy seeing the process I used to create this gift card envelope.

Poinsettias always remind me of how much my eldest daughter loves anything Christmas, and especially poinsettias.  She is one of the 4 greatest and most memorable gifts my husband I have ever received.

I used the following STAMPlorations products for this tutorial:

Christmas Flower – STAMPlorations

Doily Squares – ARTplorations Stencil

I look forward to reading your comments  at the STAMP blog. Please head on over for the complete tutorial with step by step photos and instructions.

Merry Christmas!
 Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
