A Jolly Hello, Cleverly Disguising a Gift Card Holder


Hi, everyone, are you all ready for Christmas? I think I’m all done with shopping, this was my last gift to buy—and “wrap”. Since it’s a gift card for the kid next door, I thought I’d make a special holder for it.

I started with a Berrylicious card stock base, then built my scene using MSTN Christmas Cuteness and MSTN Christmas Cuteness Die-namics, cut from X-Press It Blending Card, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored with Copic markers. I used Blueprints 21 Die-namics and Lemon Drop card stock and Banana Split card stock for the sun, and Sweet Tooth card stock for the Flat-Bottom Clouds Die-namics and Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. I popped layers up on foam and tied hemp cord around after stamping the sentiment with Black Licorice hybrid ink.

On the inside, Gift Card Pocket – Horizontal Die-namics was cut from the new Brown Paper Bag card stock and assembled. Brown Paper Bag card stock is AWESOME for creating pockets!! It’s lighter in weight than Kraft card stock so it creates less bulk—love it! I stamped a sentiment from Gifting Fun on the pocked with Wild Cherry dye ink and Black Licorice hybrid ink and adhered it to a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Sheet Music Background and Black Licorice hybrid ink. It, and the Wild Cherry card stock layer under it, were cut with dies from Blueprints 20 Die-namics


And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you again soon!
