Holiday Cheer

Happy November 1st!  It seems so crazy to think in just a few weeks it will be Thanksgiving, next month is Christmas and next week my boy will be eleven.  This year has gone by quick like!  
Well, I have another Avocado Arts project share to show you today.  I decorated a Maya Road envelope, it is a little on the smaller side, so I think this is the perfect size for a gift card.  My daughter who is 15, really enjoys getting gift cards, so I will need to have a few gift card holders on stand by, ready to use.
I started by glueing down the burlap using fabritac, it's a strong liquid glue.  I then paper pieced the Christmas trees, and adhered them to the envelope.  I stamped the sentiment, then hand cut it out, an adhered it using a foam square adhesive.  To finish the gift card holder off, I stamped a star, adhered it to the top and added a few black rhinestones.  This was very quick and easy, and I can see myself using the same sketch for a card.
Head on over to the Avocado Arts website to see all of the latest happenings, and visit the rest of the designers to see their most fabulous projects!
