Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Gift Card Holders

If you’re in need of a last minute gift card holder for a gift card you’re giving this holiday season (like I did), then I have one that’s easy to make! I’m sharing two using Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (it’s on sale for $4.80) and the Brightest Glow stamp set.  I have a third one using Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper which unfortunately has already sold out.

 

 

 

This first card was made with Early Espresso cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I scored my cardstock in two different places and folded it in half and then the other one was folded to make a pocket. I added a piece of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the pocket and then added another piece inside the card. On this card I used a 1″ Circle Punch (Stampin’ Up! no longer sells this punch) to cut a notch in the pocket but after making a third one, I realized, I didn’t really need to do this step as the gift card is really easy to get out of the pocket. I added Tear & Tape to the sides of the pocket and folded it up.

 

 

I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and added another piece of Designer Series Paper at the top and adhered it to the inside of the card. I folded the card up and then wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon around the card (I added the ribbon so that the present could actually be unwrapped). I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Brightest Glow, and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added three Festive Pearls to the sentiment. 

 

 

 

For this next card, I used Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper, Real Red cardstock, Real Red ink, Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon (from the Mini Catalog). 

 

 

 

 

 

For this last card, I used Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper which I mentioned above is no longer available but if you were able to get it before it sold out, you can give this card a try.  I also used Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon, Real Red ink and Rhinestone Basic Jewels. For this card, I did NOT cut the notch out of the pocket and you can see that it’s just fine.

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Woodland Embossing Folder

Today I have two Christmas cards to share with you that were made using the same design.  One was made using Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper and the other was made with Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper. Both cards were made using the Brightest Glow Bundle which includes the Brightest Glow stamp set and the Labels Aglow Dies. I also used the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder.

 

 

 

For this first card I used Night of Navy cardstock for the base of my card. Then I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the base of the card.  I also adhered a piece of Basic White to the inside. I cut two pieces of Night of Navy cardstock (the measurements I used are below the Supply List) and layered them with two pieces of Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper. I adhered the vertical piece to the front of the card but added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the other before adhering it to the card. 

 

 

 

I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and cut it out using the Labels Aglow Dies. If you aren’t sure how to emboss, you’ll find directions below.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the sentiment and adhered it to the horizontal piece. To complete the card, I added three silver Festive Pearls.

 

 

 

For this next card, I used Real Red cardstock and Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. I also heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and used Rhinestone Basic Jewels. 

 

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder. Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image becomes shiny and beautiful!

Stampin’ Up! Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper

Today’s card features Stampin’ Up! Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Brightest Glow Bundle which includes the Brightest Glow stamp set and the Labels Aglow Dies. I also used the Twinkling Lights Dies

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock for the base of my card.  Then I cut a piece of Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and added it to the front of the card. There are so many beautiful designs in this package of paper!! Next, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then ran it through one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

I used a different design of Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper to cut a tree using the Twinkling Lights Dies and adhered it to the embossed Basic White cardstock. 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock in Evening Evergreen ink using the stamp set, Brightest Glow and cut it out using the Labels Aglow Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the upper half of the sentiment and adhered it to the left bottom corner of the rectangle. Next, I added nine Festive Pearls in Soft Succulent, all over the tree. To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside. Festive Pearls are currently out of stock but are estimated to be back in stock the week of November 21st.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Bundle

Today’s card features the Brightest Glow Bundle which includes the Brightest Glow stamp set and the Labels Aglow Dies.  I also used Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper and the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder before adding it to the card front.  Normally I cut this piece of Basic White down a little bit but I cut it to cover the entire front (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). 

Next, I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock and layered it with a piece of Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper. Then, I adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

Next, I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Labels Aglow Dies. Then I cut a smaller piece of Gold Foil and adhered it to the back of the Real Red cardstock so the pretty gold foil would show through the holes. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front. 

 

 

 

I embossed the sentiment in gold onto Basic White cardstock using Versamark ink and the Brightest Glow stamp set (I have directions for heat embossing below). I cut it out using the Labels Aglow Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Festive Pearls to the front of the card. The Festive Pearls are currently out of stock but are estimated to be back in stock the week of November 21st. 

 

How To Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder. Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess.
