The card solution....

I had a bunch of Christmas cards hanging over my blinds in my lounge room. I was thinking there must have been a better way to display and store them so I came up with my Christmas card holder using a Heidi Swapp Memory File and a shabby stand I found out a local market.
I have used the Believe free printable Heidi has on her blog this week, (check it out here) on the front of my folder

I misted some chipboard letters in  Cherry Red Color Shine. That banner comes from another free printable also found on Heidi's blog.

I so adore that Santa flair from Greatest View, just perfect for my project!

Here you can see my card holder open.

The first page houses  the Christmas card we will be sending out to family and friends this year. I used some of Heidi'd digi words on my card. That photo of my boys I created using a few apps on my iphone, see Heidi's blog for full details.

My banner I made from the packaging from Heidi's goodies!

Color Magic paper and Color Shine..perfect!

The second page holds my cards. I used a piece of acetate and sewed three sides to the back of my Memory File, I then printed out that free Christmas printable, cut it out and stapled it to the top of my pocket. I then slid my cards into the pocket!

My stand now sits on our formal dining room table along side my other Christmas decorations. Once Christmas is over I can take it off the stand and my cards are now safely inside for me to revist them in the future!
