Gift Card Holders

I am pretty sure I got this idea from Heather Nichol’s blog.  I used the largest die from the Spellbinders Labels Eight and Curvy Rectangles dies to cut the kraft cardstock.  When you fold them in half, they are the perfect size for gift cards.  I cut about an inch or so of the bottom die and used Scor Tape around the edges to make the pocket.  DSC_2654-EditI die cut an ornament with the vintage ornaments die and added glitter around the edges and some bakers twine to finish it off.  The snowflakes are from Snowflake Serenade.


The snowflakes are from the 2010 Holiday Tags set and are stamped in Stormy Sky distress ink.  As a side note, I think this is a terrific match for Blueberry Sky.   I stamped the tree from Tiny Treats Christmas in Giverny Green Palette ink.  The snowflakes were cut from felt with Spellbinders snowflakes dies.

DSC_2660-Edit I stamped the postage mark and reindeer from 2010 Holiday Tags in Chai ink.  The dotted circle is from Take Note and the Mat Stack 1 stamp from Tiny Treats Christmas. 

DSC_2665-Edit I used the stamps from 2010 Holiday Tags on this one and all the patterned paper that you see  is from Christmas Prints.  All stamps and paper is from Papertrey Ink.

I have been busy, busy, busy working on Christmas gifts, unfortunately, I can’t share any of them until after Christmas.   I guess I could tell my family not to read my blog until after Christmas, but I don’t really think that will work.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Perfect gift card holders! The kraft cardstock looks perfect with your designs. I think I need to make some of these - I'm running out of time, too!
