Countdown to Christmas!

Only 2 full weeks left until Christmas! Are you in a panic yet? Hopefully you have everything under control and have the time to enjoy the season. The Dreamweaver Stencils design team wants to help you with those last minute gift and tag ideas that are sure to come up in the next couple of weeks. Our challenge for the month of December is "Holidays in a Hurry!", perfect for quick little projects that will look like you spent hours!
This week I am showing you a great project that I love to use for hostess gifts during the holidays, or all year long. It's a folder with matching notecards and can be created with virtually any papers and stencils. The sky's the limit! Here's a sample:
Lg Fleur de lis (LL447) in Matte Black Embossing Paste

Four matching notecards and envelopes tuck in the pockets of the folder

Coordinate your notecards to the folder papers for a beautiful presentation
The steps for this project were posted on  May 9, 2013, click here to see the step by step pictures for this easy project:  Just change the papers and stencil to ones you like! Here's a sample of the one on the instructions:

The rest of the team has more great ideas for you. Here's this week's list of designers:
Happy Creating,
