challenge combo


I needed to make some gift card holders and as crazy as it is for me this week- I decided to do a few challenges to keep my mind and mojo flowing.
Kwerner's color inspiration (see inset right) was choc chip, close to cocoa, baja blue, so saffron and very vanilla. Pretty color combo, but let me tell you so saffron is tough to try to use in a Christmas design. The sketch is the sketch challenge today on SCS.
Patty Bennett had directions on her blog to make gift card holders. They are very simple, so I made a few more but not using so saffron. The base is made from 3 -1/2 x 11. So, finished size is 4-1/2 x 3-1/2.
I apologize for crooked scan of Mr. Twigster.
