Disclaimer: I do not claim to be nor have I ever been a paper crafter. My apologizes to my paper crafting friends for my humble attempts made during this project. LOL!

Happy Monday, Everyone! It’s hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. We start to think of the special people in our lives that we might want to remember by giving them a token of thanks. The project I have for you today not only lets you send someone a holiday note of appreciation, it also enables you to give them a gift at the same time!

Consider making a personalized greeting card for a friend or loved one this year.

This project is a great way to up those scraps of paper at the end of a roll and snippets of ribbon you may have laying around. For the front of Holiday Card, I used leftover wrapping paper and brown velvet ribbon. The Gift tag was made using a Friskars punch, 6mm Swarovski Crystal bicone, 12mm Gold Sparkle bead, and 8mm vintage pearl, strung on Soft Flex Copper Metallics wire.

While the front may be beautiful, inside a glamorous surprise awaits!

Imagine the delight on the face of your friend or loved one when she finds a gorgeous gift inside!

The inside of the card was assembled by using Christmas Rub-ons from Stampin’ Up, off white card stock, scrapbook paper, an Easy Earring Card Punch, and a pair of custom made Christmas Earrings by Suzann Sladcik Wilson. By using an Easy Earring Card Punch, the card enables you to include a pair of custom made earrings. It really is a fun and unexpected way to give a gift!

I have written about the Easy Earring Card Punches in an earlier blog post and how much I enjoyed them. This holiday season, you may want to have some greeting cards made with the Easy Earring Card Punches on hand for your customers to purchase. It will save on wrapping for your clients, and boost your sales, too!
