One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop - Festive Season

Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop! I'm so glad to have you here at Create With Christy! This month, our theme is Festive Season...holiday themed projects.

If you're like me, you give a few gift cards out as gifts at Christmas. I like to dress up my gift cards with special holders to make them a little more special, and I thought you might, too. So, to you help out, I've got two gift card holders you can make.

Learn how to make both of my gift card holders in my video:

My first gift card holder features the Merriest Moments Stamp Set & it's coordinating embossing folder/ dies, Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. They're both from the Stampin' Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog (Holiday Mini Catalog). The name of it doesn't say it, but dies are included with the beautiful embossing folder. Whenever a Stampin' Up! products says "Hybrid Embossing Folder", it means it includes dies, too. This time, I didn't use the folder, but I did use a couple of the dies to die-cut the poinsettia on the front out.

If you like traditional Christmas patterned paper, then you're going to LOVE the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I used. The color combo has reds & greens, and the designs include holly, berries, poinsettias, etc. It's a gorgeous paper pack! I also love the Gold Holly Leaves I used for the holly embellishment I made on the bottom, left corner of the top flap. The berries were made with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

This gift card holder is a tri-fold card. When you open it up, there's a pocket to put your gift card in (the ones that are the size of a credit card). I love the circle cut-out on the top. It really gives this holder a unique look.

This little gift card holder features the Celebrate With Tags Bundle from the same Holiday Mini Catalog. The bundle includes the Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set & the Celebrations Tag Dies. When you purchase them together, using the bundle item #, you will save 10%! 

There are two different tag dies in the die-set, and the one I used makes a perfect tag pocket for a gift card! If you give a lot of gift cards out, this one would be super easy to mass produce!

I used the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog on both of the gift card holders. There are two embossing folders in this set, and they fit inside the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine. I used the pine branch folder on the tri-fold gift card holder, and I used the snowflake one on this one. I think the snowflakes look really pretty in the Pool Party Cardstock.

I wanted to put some sparkle on this, so I used white glimmer paper from the Real Red & White Glimmer Paper in the Holiday Mini for the snowflake die-cut, and I added small rhinestones from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels from the Annual Catalog. They give the holder a perfect amount of sparkle.
