A few more Gift Card Ideas


Here are a few more gift card ideas I made for classes.

 Supplies used:

Christmas Tree Gift Card Holder


This was a fun and very simple gift card holder.  I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock at 11″ x 5 1/4″.  Score at 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″.  Fold card as image shows below and adhere the (3) sides of the middle  together.  Be sure you don’t adhere the top or put adhesive in the center or the gift card will fit in the slot.  I then used the word window punch on each end and then the 1″ circle punch halfway in the center.

Some beautiful Christmas Cards made by Vicky


Hello Everyone. I  have some beautiful Christmas cards to share from my friend Vicky.  She showed me these cards at stamp class the other night, and I think she did a great job designing!!  I love all the details and the gorgeous embossing.  The SU stamp sets she used were Dasher, French Foliage, En Francais and Hand Penned Holidays.  I know she would
love to hear your comments!

Merry Christmas Gift Card Holder


I have made several gift card holders for upcoming classes; hope you enjoy and make some for your friends too!

Inside Naughty and Nice

To make this card I cut a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Real Red SU card stock and scored it at 4 1/2″ and 8 3/4″.  I used Ski Slope DSP (retired) and cut a 4″x4″ and a 4″ x 2″ piece for the front and a 4″ x 4 1/4″ in white for the inside.  I used dimensionals to adhere the red scallop circle on the bottom half only on  so the flap would fit under to close.  The flap and DSP on flap were corner rounded.

Supplies used:

Ink:  Real Red, Baja Breeze

Stamps:  Around Christmas Time (non SU) and Serene Snowflakes (SU)

Acessories: 2″ circle punch, 2 3/8″ scalloped circle punch, 1″ circle punch, word window pinch, corner rounder
