Painted Seasons Greeting Card Holder & Cards

Today’s project is a greeting card holder made with the Painted Seasons Designer Paper & Stamp Set. The holder holds 4 cards & envelopes and makes a perfect gift.











You only need one 12 x 12 sheet of Designer Series Paper for the holder and to embellish the four coordinating greeting cards.

I designed this holder a few years ago in two sizes; one for greeting cards and one for note cards.  Here’s a photo of two note cards holders I made several years ago… still love those designer paper prints!!!

 www.CreateWithTerriGaines.comI created a video to help explain the assembly of the holder (see below).  Once you make one you are going to want to make more!


The Painted Seasons products are perfect for the holder and cards as there are so many possibility for decorating the holders and cards.
