Frosty Gift Card Holder

Well, I just finished one of the many Christmas celebrations for this season! This one was with my Mom's side of the family. It was my turn to host this year and my house got a cleaning it had been sorely needing for a long time now. You know, stamping usually takes priority over scrubbing walls and cupboards ;)

And now it is time to get back to stamping! I got a great big box full of pre-order goodness earlier this week and have not had a chance to do more than assemble the stamp sets (all 15 of them), put everything away, and make a sympathy card for a co-worker (she needed to give someone else the card).

I did want to show you more of what we did at club this month also. This is a gift card holder I came up with.

I used the prongs of a mini brad for the closure, which works really well! The embossing was so yummy on the card we made, I just had to keep using it :) There is White and Pewter on this card.
  • Stamps: Snow Swirled
  • Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
  • Ink: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Versamark
  • Other: Simply Scored, Decorative Label punch, Corner Rounder punch, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, Silver Mini Brad, Embossing Buddy, White Detail embossing powder, Pewter embossing powder, Heat Gun, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot with Snow Burst embossing folder

Here is the inside of the gift card holder. It is very easy to make, so you could make as many as you need for the season very quickly!

For the gift card, you will score across the bottom 1" from the edge, then at 1" and 4¾" the other direction. 

You can get 3 gift cards from one 8½x11 sheet of paper with this template. I hope you all have fun making these!

I was thinking the same thing. I was wondering how you closed it... what's that? A brad? Very cool.
