Card Holder tutorial by Vicki

hi and welcome,
today I've posted an adorable card holder using an easy peasy tutorial done by super super talented ...     Vicki Dutcher.

(dont laugh at my flower - didnt bring any punches on this trip, so improvised - used a quarter and made a circle, then "eyeballed" my 6 blossoms and made flower as usual....not too shabby! but would prefer a punch!! Using the flower and the sentiment to hold my top flap (didnt bring any velcro or magnets!!)

This is my first one, so looking forward to getting bolder on future makes!



Sentiment is from  GKD's "Farm Life" by Theresa and papers are Webster's vellum and green construction paper that my Grankids had....now pop on over to Vicki's Blog for the details - I'm tellin ya, very easy!

have a blessed day!
I am so lovin taking care of my grankids - tremendous blessing and I'm smilin alllllll day!!!

You are so resourceful! I never would have guessed your flower wasn't punched, if you hadn't tattled on yourself. Love the way you held the flap down, looks fabulous!
