Last Minute Cricut Artiste Christmas Gift Idea

We are in the home stretch!  Are you ready?  If you need a last-minute gift idea, you are in the right place!

I made this simple gift card holder using my Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge and my Cricut Expression 2 cutting machine.  If you don't have one, you might want to ask Santa!  ;)

I cut it out of White Daisy CS and added a panel of Cranberry to the front, back, and inside.  The mustache cut is also found on this cartridge, so you don't need another one for this project!  :)  The rest of Santa's jolly face is made with bits from the Mini-Medley Ruby and Black collections.

I used is a retired My Acrylix stamp set called Christmas Joy, but any Christmas sentiment will do.  

I just love how the scalloped edge mimics Santa's white, puffy trim on his suit!  It is the perfect easy gift card holder for family and friends!

Here is a bonus idea for that Santa Stache from my girlie's class holiday party...the kids LOVED them!

Don't forget in the bustle of the season that time is running out to get your hands on the Stamp of the Month for December!  You can fill your cart with just $50 of products on my website to get it for only $5, too!!!  This one even coordinates with the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Collection!  Check it out HERE.
