Corey’s Christmas gift card holder

This is a quick gift card holder I made up last night for my Godson’s Christmas present.  Inside there is a JB Hi-Fi voucher which is still in its own folder, so the gift card holder is slightly bigger than a standard gift card size.

I was inspired to make this from the gorgeous Secret Santa gift I received from my Stampin’ Up! buddy, Rachel Jackson.  You can see her gorgeous gift for me here.  I loved the black and red spots together.  And, as this is for a boy, I had to use the super new stamp set, available in the Summer Mini, Grunge Rock.

I used part of the sentiment from the Level 3 Hostess stamp set, Occasional Quotes, and I popped a more masculine background pattern in by using my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stuck to the colours Basic Black, Real Red and Very Vanilla, and I added some depth to the gift card holder by sponging Basic Black around the edges, including the Real Red guitar.  I popped a Vintage brad in the corner near the Merry Christmas and snipped a flag end with my paper snips.

I finished off by using my new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz over everything – I love this new effect!

And Corey’s Christmas gift is already in the post – hopefully it will arrive safely in Melbourne tomorrow 🙂

Thanks for looking 🙂

Kristina Werner Gift Card Holder

About 3 weeks ago Kristina Werner’s MACM (Make a card Monday) was a Gift Card Holder (check out KW’s video tutorial here) which I thought the most clever, cute, useful and gorgeous papercraft creation I have ever seen.  Thank you so much Kristina for the fabulous ideas!

And so, I set out to make a few of my own.  I made them using the delicious Holiday Harmony DSP and the coordinating colours and ribbons that go with that paper.  I thought it was the perfect time of year for a Christmas Gift Card Holder!

This is what it looks like with a store gift card inside …

These were so easy to make!  And so, I made a few in different colours which I will post as soon as I can photograph them without little hands trying to grab them 🙂

I will also include 3 of them in my upcoming World Card Making Day event on Friday 10 October 2008 at 8.00pm – a class to make a Christmas Bag, Christmas Gift and three of these Christmas Gift Card holders at my home in Parklea.  Bookings are essential so email to book your place me today.
