I made gift card holders last June for my Son’s end of school gifts for his teachers, and they were so easy to make, I thought i would make them for Christmas as well. These will be great for any gift cards I decide to give anyone on my list this year. I already have directions on how to make these in my Tutorials. So fast and easy and they are simple to embellish to suit any time of the year.
I used my So Many Scallops set for the circle sentiments on the top and bottom card holders. I simply punched the centers out with a 1 1/4″ punch and matted them with 1 1/2″ punched circles.
The other two card holders are embellished with a scallop punch square. I punched the little deer and tree first out of the cardstock, then I lined up my scallop square punch over it, to get it centered.
All the papers are Basic Grey Figgy decorative papers.
I also wanted to show you this card that I made for a new challenge I found called Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. This week’s inspiration came from the movie Miracle on 34th Street. Now, I much prefer the original version made in 1947, over the newer 1994 version. So I went with a bit of a, days gone by, look. The Santa is acually a crop of a larger stamp. I liked the focus being on this merry old Santa’s face. I used vintage photo distress ink to stamp him, and outlined the circle with a gold sakura stardust pen. The sentiment is from the Flourishes Sleigh Ride set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I so appreciate all your kind comments!
