Gift card holders

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I truly do appreciate each of you more than you know.

The inspiration and indeed instructions for creating the gift card holders I'm sharing with you today came from another Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Caroline, AKA Crafty Hallett. They really are easy to make with the Envelope Punch Board and you can see how in Caroline's short video.

Instead of using a 6" x 4" piece of DSP as per Caroline's instructions, I've made mine from Very Vanilla card that measures 6" x 4 1/4". Before punching and scoring them I stamped the smallest star stamp from the gorgeous Bright and Beautiful stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink. You can see my other creations using the stamp set here.

Then to decorate them I stamped the For You from the Tag Talk stamp set in the same ink onto more Very Vanilla and punched it out using the Bracket Label punch, before popping up on a couple Stampin Dimensionals.

I loved it that much I created some with Tempting Turquoise too before creating envelopes for them using the EPB.
