Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek Day 2, Post 3 of 3

This is the final post for today for day 2 of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks. Be sure to check out the first 2 posts!

Hello, hello! I have to admit that I am over the moon for this little project I made to showcase the A Gift for You stamp. I used my Ornament Sizzix die to make a gift card holder that can then be used as an ornament. The CDS colors match so well with the new CC Mitten Weather line of paper, and you know I just love my CDS colors!
Look at how beautifully the colors cover the chipboard scrolls and how vibrant the color ends up being.
I have to laugh whenever I look at this picture of the $20 bill in the flap. I never have cash. . .I actually had to borrow it from my mother for the picture, lol. Kinda like high school aaaaalll over again :)
