Happy Monday! I hope you had an enjoyable weekend!

On Friday, during the Glitter Queens Blog Hop, I shared a gift card holder and today I have another one with just a few changes. If you’d like to see the one from Friday, along with pictures and measurements, you can read that post here.

This card is fun because the recipient doesn’t expect to open it up and find a gift card! I used Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper, which happens to be on the retiring list so if you like it, grab it while it’s still available – it’s while supplies last!  This particular pattern is very colorful and I think it would be great for a man or woman.

The snowman card has a ribbon enclosure but ooops, I forgot to add it before adding my panels so I did the next best thing and added some sparkly tinsel trim.  The Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack is also on the retiring list AND on sale 20%! This really pretty trim would be great on a small packages under there tree!  If you’d like more information about the tinsel trim, you can check it out here.The picture above shows the outside of the gift card.  It isn’t necessary to add the middle panel but I like it because it gives the gift card holder a more finished look.

I used Real Red 12 x 12 cardstock for the base of the gift card.  The Brights Best 12″ x 12″ Cardstock Pack includes 8 sheets of Real Red as well as Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay.  You can make three gift card holders out of one sheet of 12″ x 12″ paper!

The sentiment on the outside is stamped in Real Red and is part of the set Snowflake Sentiments.  This stamp set is not retiring (yay!) but the bundle IS.  The bundle includes the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies and when you purchase both the stamp set (available in clear or wood) and the Thinlits, you save 10%.  On the inside, I used a stamp from the set Tags and Trimmings (a retiring set) and stamped it using Memento Black Ink.



Don’t want to use an entire stamp?  No problem! Just cover it up with Post It tape or a Post It, ink up the stamp, remove the paper and stamp! Easy peasy!
