Card Holder


I had purchased several of these paper mache cardholders from Stampington some years ago for a class. Last time I checked they no longer sell them. I had two left over and decided it was time to to decorate them. So I kept one and gave the other one to Deb. What a week she had. Hopefully this project cheered her up a bit.
So we painted and decorated our cardholders to our liking. I had some rusty elements that I had purchased and these rusty hearts Deb had given me in a R.A.K. I used specialty papers from Tim Coffey's Tuscan Sunflowers by K&Co. That beautiful lollipop flower that matched perfectly was made by Deb and she gifted it to me. I was in the mood to use up what I have...what am I holding on to it for...So I did.
