Merry Little Christmas
If your like me, the best thing to give someone is a gift card. I have to say that I dislike to do this because it seems so impersonal and lack of thinking but... who doesn't like to go shopping on their own to actually receive what they just simply can't live without.
Here's a great little gift card holder that makes that card personal... made by you with love!
Base card- olive green used here - 4 1/4" x 11" score @ 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
White cardstock - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", 4" x 5 1/4"
Red cardstock - 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Snowflake cardstock - 2 3/4" x 4", 2 1/4" x 4", 1" x 4"
misc items used - 1" punch, Quickie glue pen, Glamour Dust glitter
With the card folded on the 5 1/2" score line, Adhere the 2 3/4" x 4" snowflake cardstock onto the front, left of the score line. Adhere the 2 1/2" x 4" snowflake cardstock on the other side of the score line to the right.
Open up the card and using the 1" punch, punch a half circle in the middle from the edge through both layers. Adhere the two outer sides down, remember not to adhere the front part so that the gift card can slide in.
Stamp the Wishing you sentiment onto the 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock and adhere to the inside. Adhere the 1" x 4" snowflake cardstock on the edge of the white cardstock.
Adhere the red cardstock onto the front half only.
Stamp the Little Christmas stamp onto the 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" white cardstock. Using the pine branch stamp and Bamboo memento ink, stamp on all 4 corners. (It is ok to overlay the stamp onto the sentiment). I am using a quickie glue pen to add my glitter to the pine branches.
Adhere this piece to the red cardstock on the front of the card. You can't see it in the photo but the wow factor is the little bit of glitter added to the branches.
Your card is now done!
