Matchbook Christmas

The countdown to Christmas is upon us. I’ve seen several posts on Facebook that WalMart released their Black Friday sales flyer, which is only two days away ACK! Mr. Gears and I are pretty easy when it comes to holiday shopping. We focus on the gathering part of the holidays and not so much on the gift giving piece. It seems all our adult friends have more than enough stuff in their house and the kids can barely walk across their bedroom without stepping on a toy. I can assure you I won’t be anywhere near Walmart or any other store Thanksgiving weekend. Well, unless there’s a REALLY awesome craft sale. :o)

Here’s a card using an older stamp set from my stash. I have a pack of pre-scored matchbook cards in Wild Wasabi from a random sale years ago. I thought it would work nicely for a holiday card and if I want to tuck in a gift card or some cash, it would stay put in the fold.
Thanks for looking! Spicey Cat Chick =^..^=
