Valentine’s Day is almost here and I have a gift card holder to share with you. (Because what says “I love you” more than a Venti White Mocha?) This starts with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Real Red scored at 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2. Put some strong adhesive right on the inside of the score lines and die cut, punch or simply cut the top of the sealed area. This makes a space for your gift card. Decorate the inside and out of your holder and wrap with a belly band.
My belly band is 1″ wide and is decorated with Sending Love Designer Series paper. The heart is punched from Red Glimmer paper and the Love is die cut from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
I made some 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 envelopes using the envelope punch board to hold these and they fit perfectly! Hugs, Fran
I made a little pouch to hold a gift card and decorated it like a Scrabble board. You could use this idea on a card, box – just about anything that you can draw squares on. My squares are 3/4 x 3/4 – not an exact fit, but it worked. I glued the tiles to the card stock. The little hearts are from the Confetti Hearts punch and covered in Crystal Effects.
The flap closes with tiny magnets. Hugs, Fran
I’m still using sparkly, shiny card stock! I need a gift card holder for the season – always need them – so I pulled out some Brushed Silver card stock, some retired silver embossed Designer Series paper and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups dies and made this one.
Jolly the Mouse and Rudy the Reindeer are rockin’ out as they help Santa load the Pop It Up Sleigh with gift card holder! The sleigh is Red Foil and Red Glimmer paper. Rudy’s IPod is hand cut and the little records are circle punches. The nice thing about this Pop It Up is it has a little side Pop It Up stand for Rudy.
Jolly has his Santa glasses on 🙂 Rudy’s nose is coated with Crystal Effects. Lots of shine – lots of fun! Hugs, Fran
I’m excited to share with you a cute idea using Karen Burniston’s Gift Card Accordion with Chilly the Penguin.
Here is the card in the closed position:
And here it is opened up:
Use the Gift Card Accordion Die cut to cut the following pieces:
(2) full pages from sturdy red cardstock
(2) pieces from patterned paper, using the paper over the inner rectangle only. Trim to just the rectangles and glue the patterned paper rectangles over the red cardstock pages, taking care to line up the tuck slots on Page 2 perfectly to be able to add a gift card later.
Use the companion Flourish Gift Frame die set to die cut 3 white Flourish Frames. Adhere the frames to the pages, including one for the front of the album when closed.
Assemble the Gift Card Accordion according to the package directions or by watching Karen’s assembly video here: Gift Card Accordion
Die cut Chilly the Penguin using white, black and orange cardstock and assemble him. Make slits between his body and arms. Using gold thread, wrap Chilly as shown.
Die cut the string of Christmas lights from the Holiday House die set four times (1 set each in red, blue, green and yellow) and trim into individual bulbs. For the bulbs that are adhered to Chilly, simply glue them over the thread. For any bulbs that are hanging off of Chilly, sandwich the thread between two bulbs adhered back-to-back
Die cut the largest decorator tree from the Evergreen Pivot Card set and sponge green ink through the die to create the swirl pattern, Adhere the tree to the page with a pop dot and add a glitter star.
Stamp “Santa Says” in green and “Shop!” in red using the Merry & Bright clear stamps. Die cut the circle and add to the page.
Die cut 4 presents and bows using the Evergreen Pivot Card set – one each in yellow, red, green and blue. Assemble the presents and adhere them to Page 2, being careful not to cover the tuck slots that will hold the gift card.
Add your gift card and make someone smile! Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project!
Silver and White – such a pretty color combination for a Christmas card, but SO hard to photograph! This Gift Card Holder is made with Karen Burniston’s Gift Card Holder die and Stampin Up’s Peaceful Pine stamp set. The trees are stamped in Versamark and silver embossing powder. The dotted stamp is the medium tree, but I used the small tree die to cut them out. The little packages are embossed in silver and the ribbon in colored with a Real Red Stampin Write Marker. The star on top is Red Glimmer paper. The sentiment is from Versatile Christmas and is also embossed in silver.
The Gift Card Holder was cut out of Heavy White card stock and then again in Silver Foil with the center trimmed away. The frame was cut in Whisper White.
On the inside I reversed the order and cut the frame and a solid from Silver Foil. It’s so shiny! And that’s one of the best parts of the holidays 🙂 Hugs, Fran
These gift card holders (136662) are so much fun to use! The little fronts (3 7/8 x 3 7/8) are just the right size for cut embellishments. I used the Distressed Dots embossing folder to make the background and then added embossed stars in White and Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. By tucking a little piece of Cherry Cobbler seam binding behind the front, this gift card holder can hang on a tree.
