Sandi's Christmas in the bank #2 Collage Sheet

Hello Friends!!
Happy Sunday!!
Today I had a little time to create some gift card holders so I can participate in Sandi's Christmas in the Bank Challenge.  She has made some easy peasy gift card holders, and has shared how to create them on her blog.  I was inspired and created these Vintage Christmas Gift Card holders below.  I printed then cut out all my images, distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink by Ranger, then used pop dots to elevate the sentiment, so that the ribbon easily slides under it, so the gift card holder can be tied shut.
Pin It!

I found a Vintage image of Santa and added him to the background that I designed and added the "Merry Christmas" sentiment.  After I printed it out, I decided that I didn't like the music notes behind the "Merry Christmas," so on the collage sheet the pink background will just have the gold writing.  One of the notes makes it look like I have added an extra letter "i" to Christmas...LOL.  But it is the letter "m." That is the reason the music notes will be gone (so if you purchase the collage sheet you will understand).
I have my favorite Champagne Flatback pearls and red blingy bling mesh, and ivory drop bead pearls all from Pro 31 designs.  I also used my favorite Juliet Lace, parrot leaves and red diagonal lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  On the gift card holder below I used some of the Pink crochet lace and champagne sheer organza.  This one I decided to go "Vertical."  Add a little interest in my Gift card holders.  This way I could use the sweet image that I found at the Graphic Fairy.
If you missed Sandi's first Christmas in the bank challenge, which was to create 12 tags, this collage sheet can help in that I included to easy tags as well.  You can purchase the sheet in my Etsy shop here.

I hope to have some time to create a few more this week, so please plan on stopping by again for another visit!  I hope you have some time to play along in Sandi's Christmas in the Bank Challenge!!
