Kelli's Krafts - A Little Gift Tag (& a Peek)

My friend Lyndsey and her mom always give door prizes at their cookie exchange (they serve food too AND provide the boxes for our cookies...they are pretty swell).  This year Lyndsey asked if I would make her some cards to be used one of the door prizes.  Make some cards...why certainly!  I decided to make up a bundle of 3x3 gift cards because they are super easy and so nice to add to any gift.

I made a few with a Christmas theme.  I just used some of my Candy Cane DSP (which I believe is now out of stock!) for the front.

I stamped a little message on the inside.

I also included Welcome Baby cards...one for a girl, one for a boy.  These are always great to add to a shower gift.  I used Butterfly Prints for the image and Short & Sweet for the sentiment.

I also included these that I made for the craft fair a few months back.  I had some retired paper and ribbon and I came up with these.  The sentiment is from a previous mini catalog and the butterfly is from the set Hello Again.

They were a hit and the person who won them loved them (and ordered another stack!).  They are a quick and easy way to either send with a gift or send as a gift.

And here's a little peek into the chaos of Christmas card making.

Next week I'll show you the final results...they go out today!!!

Oh how well I remember the days of card making materials ALL OVER my tables! :o) My niece was coming for a visit at the tender age of two, and was into EVERYTHING and we *had* to find a safe spot for my stamping items. We took the spare bedroom and converted it to a stamping space--it came complete with a locking door, lol!

I can't wait to see the finished products, and those 3"x3"s are just precious. :o) What a fantastic door prize! :o)

What a fun little door prize and I love the size. I've never made 3X3 but they sound quick and easy to do. I may have to whip up some for myself.
