If you need ideas for quick and easy gift card holders, I have three for you. I had a variety of items left over from previous projects and couldn’t let them go to waste. The envelopes are easy to make with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die Set. I used the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper color palette to guide my choices for the envelopes as well as the bands and toppers. Gingerbread House, Gingerbread Girl and Candies make for cute and easy toppers. Now I just have to get our there and purchase gift cards. [smile]
ENVELOPE BASES: I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die Set in Crumb Cake, Real Red and Whisper White. This die is the perfect size to hold gift cards. The variety of bands help to hold the envelopes closed as well as accentuate the toppers.
BAND TOPPERS: The Gingerbread Girl and Merry Christmas Candy toppers were left on my table from previous projects.
- Gingerbread House ~ I fussy cut the Gingerbread House from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. Next I layered it onto Real Red (2-1/4″) and Whisper White (2″) circles. Then I topped the roof with White Mica Flakes to add a bit of sparkle.
- Gingerbread Girl ~ I stamped her onto Soft Suede with VersaMark Ink, next I clear embossed then punched with the Cookie Cutter punch. The buttons were clear embossed and punched with a 1/4″ Circle Punch. I love the shine heat embossing adds. Woohoo! The Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper bow was also punched from the Cookie Cutter Punch.
- Merry Christmas Candies ~ The Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper design candies were punched with a 5/8″ Circle Punch. Next I layered them with Real Red (1-3/8″ and Whisper White (1-1/4″) circles. Finally, “Merry Christmas” was stamped in Soft Suede ink.
I hope you are inspired to give these fun gift card holders a try OR create your own with what you have in your “stash”. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Friday!
