One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Festive Friday # 21 Colour Challenge ~ Holiday Card Class

Love these colors for Christmas!  Aqua, white and red! And if you would like to play along, go HERE   to access the Festive Friday blog and play along! 
and the inside is a little gift card holder
I wasn't going to take the Online Card Class, but have been feeling not so inspired the last couple of weeks, so I thought the class would give me a little boost and I think it did!
I like the idea of adding the little pocket to the inside, because I am like many who give a gift card to nieces and nephews.  I used washi tape to secure the three edges of the vellum pocket...and it "kind of" matches the polka dots on the face of the card!
stamps:  Fresh Squeezed: A Wee Christmas
paper:  PTI white and pure poppy pattern paper, aqua mist, vellum
ink:  black memento
copics, washi tape
God Bless all our Veterans who live and those who gave their lives for our freedom!
Heart Hugs,

  3. Hi Colleen ! Love the vellum gift holder on this adorable card! That way no one will miss it. The washi tape is a fun idea too! Love that fun little elf . If you don't mind my friend I'm a going to use your list to find a challenge.....:) hope you enjoyed your weekend.

  4. I love the colors red and aqua together! Your Christmas card is so CUTE! And, love the gift card tucked inside with vellum and washi tape! Great inspiration...thank you!:-)

  6. Yes the colorcombo is great I have used it also for a card from the online classes. There was no need for me to join in because my stash with christmascards is already enough for next year I think but I couldn't resist and I'm happy I did.
