Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Gift Card Holder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope we all can take a moment of silence today to remember those that lost their lives and lost loved ones 20 years ago. I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing before I was glued to the television watching what was happening to us. It’s truly something that will never be forgotten. For me it was less than an hour away from my home and I can admit about how really scared I was. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. It’s suppose to be a gorgeous one here in NJ. I’ll be working today, but I have tomorrow off, YAY!!

Today I have a gift card holder for you using some of the adorable Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper and stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used 2 Sale-a-bration items for my card today. I used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Sale-a-bration Host Cling Stamp Set and the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE with a qualifying order of $50. The stamp set you can earn FREE with either a qualifying order of $300 or if you have a workshop of $300 or more. If you are interested in getting some friends together to order, I’d be more than happy to set up a Host Code so that you can earn the stamp set along with other Stampin’ Rewards products. Just drop me a note at and I’d be happy to talk to you about it.

I started by scoring and folding a 12″ X 5 1/4″ panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP at 4″ and 8″. On the first score line at 4″ I cut from the top of the score line to the bottom left outside corner creating the triangle. I added a very thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the bottom edge of the triangle and adhered it to the center.

I adhered the folded DSP to a Misty Moonlight panel using Multipurpose Liquid Gluemaking sure the triangle panel is in the front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of the Misty Moonlight & Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the In Your Words stamp set to a panel of Basic White cardstock in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Penguin Playmates DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

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