Holiday Gift Cards–MFT November Teasers, Day Four

Don’t let the front of the card fool you! I put my gift card on the inside, but I used Seasonal Sentiments on the front, along with part of a new Die-namics set: Die-namics Jumbo Christmas Stocking. The holly leaves and berries are from that set and just make my heart SMILE!!!

And here’s the inside, with my gift card holder, stamped with one of the images from the set and the new Jellybean Green ink. Look at that perfect image—this ink is AWEsome!


It’s not just for Christmas—there are tons of sentiments and combinations for all kinds of occasions. The die cuts out a perfect little pocket that only needs a couple of pieces of Scor-Tape or adhesive to put together, then you just adhere it to your card—inside or out!


Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:





I have another card today—this one uses a new set of Die-namics dies—Die-namics Snowdrifts, and here it is:


I used it to create this CAS card and I just love it. I added a touch of glitter with a glitter pen to the cut edges, then popped up “peace” using my Die-namics By the Letters set.


Here’s the inside with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas from last year.



This card is also for this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges—create a card or project inspired by a Christmas carol. One of my favorites is “Still, Still, Still” and I think this card says just that :) Get all the deets at the C4C blog and play along!

OK, that’s all from me today! Thanks SO much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow? :)
