Stampin’ Up! Let It Snow Gift Card Holder for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope you had a productive one.  The weekend is here already and the countdown has begun.  This will probably be my last Christmas card for you.  I think I’m all caught up and ready to start writing them out and get them in the mail.  Have you gotten all your Christmas cards made yet?  I have to work on Saturday, but   I’m looking forward to Sunday we have our in person team meeting.  I always have so much fun getting together with my team members and stamping.  Amy always has some beautiful projects for us to make.  We have a nice lunch together, take care of some business and then we get to stamp and create.

For today’s card I have a Gift Card Holder for you.  Seems that a lot of gift cards are given out around this time.  My niece always asks me to make her one or two for her boys teachers, so I’m always looking for new ideas.  My card for today uses up a lot of Designer Series Paper.  Those that read my blog from Tuesday know that I had hand surgery.  This card was NOT made ahead of time (guess I wasn’t thinking).  I did a better job doing all the fussy cutting for this card with my hands all bandaged up that I do without.  Once I got those Paper Snips on my fingers properly, I went to town cutting.   Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #219.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with “Just Us Girls” Challenge #516.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #112.  Their theme is ‘Cute Christmas’.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Foil Sheets to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue and set it aside.

I folded the Coastal Cabana card base into a Z-Fold card.  I adhered the smaller panels of the Let It Snow DSP to 5 of the 6 sides.  I did not adhere a piece to the back which will be getting adhered to the larger card base.   I fussy cut some of the snowmen from one of the panels of Let It Snow DSP using my Paper Snips.

On the front of the Z-Fold I adhered 2 of the fussy cut snowmen using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set on the DSP in Shaded Spruce Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  You can emboss any color when you use your ink and the Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I just love the way an embossed sentiment looks, so I do this a lot.

When you open the card to the right I had adhered 2 panels of the Let It Snow DSP.  I adhered another one of the fussy cut snowmen using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

When you open the Z-Fold to the left you get the inside of the card.  On the back panel I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took a 2″ piece of Let It Snow DSP and using the 1″ Circle Punch, I cut a half circle in the center of the panel.  I adhered the small panel to the center using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The gift card will slide in and out real easily.  I adhered the Z-Fold card to the card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I used the Tear & Tape because I figured the card is going to get opened and closed a lot and I really wanted to make sure it sticks well.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Let It Snow DSP to the front of the envelope 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.  It’s a pretty quick and easy card once you get all your DSP cut up.  Happy Stamping!!

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!
