Stampin’ Up Bring On The Presents Gift Card Holder for “Just Us Girls” Challenge #468

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Anyone brave shopping on Black Friday?  Not me, I stayed home and decorated for Christmas.  I would have gotten my whole house done if I didn’t have to work Sunday.  Luckily I only have 1 room left to decorate.

For today’s card I made a Gift Card Holder.  That seems to be what a lot of people want now a days for gifts.  I used the Stampin’ Up Bring On The Presents Bundle.  I played along with “Just Us Girls” Challenge #468.  Be sure to stop by “Just Us Girls” to see all the projects made.

Here is what I did for the challenge. Take a look.

I started by cutting the ribbon from the All The Presents Thinlits Dies in Sparkle Glimmer paper.  I adhered the ribbon to both corners of a piece of Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that it looked like a present.  I trimmed the ribbon to the paper.  I adhered the present to a Garden Green card front using Snail then adhered it to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bow image from Bring On the Presents stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the bow in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the bow out using All The Presents Thinlits Dies.  I adhered the bow to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the gift tag from Bring On The Presents stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Garden Green Ink in the center.  I cut the tag out using All The Presents Thinlits Dies using my Big Shot.  I tied a small piece of Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine to the gift tag and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I embossed 2 pieces of Garden Green cardstock, using my Big Shot, with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered them to both sides of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then cut and scored a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock to hold the gift card.  On both ends of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock I adhered pieces of the Dashing Along DSP using Snail.

Using my Big Shot and my Layering Squares Framelits Dies I lined up the square so that it was centered with the score line and cut it out.  I folded the Cherry Cobbler strip and adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that the 2 side score lines line up with the Garden Green edges.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Season’s Greetings sentiment, from Bring On The Presents stamp set, using Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I adhered it to the right side of the gift card holder using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the Bow image from Bring On The Presents stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink off the bottom left front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Dashing Along DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you fro stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my Gift Card Holder and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!
