Quick Holiday Gift Card Holders using 2 Variations on Snow Scene Dies

Hello from Phoenix! Shannon here wishing you a Happy Holidays! 

I know at this point in the season a lot of us are finishing up our last minute shopping with gift cards. I don’t know about you, but I needed something fairly easy but still personal to put them in. So that is where my inspiration came from for this gift card holder.

To create my wreath, I cut the snowflakes out and their centers using dies from the Snow Scenes set.

Using my bone folder/crease tool, I curled up the edges of my wreath for more dimension.Then I offset and layered them 3 deep.

I used Alabaster Glitter Glaze along the tips to give it a snowy finish.

I cut my 8.5 x 11 cardstock lengthwise to create a 4.25 x 11 inch base. I scored each end at 3.5.

Next I cut 1.5 inch from one end leaving me with a 4.25 x 9.5 inch base.

I folded in the shorter end of my base to create my pocket. I glued along the 2 sides leaving plenty of space for a gift card and also leaving the top open.

Next I cut a panel using perfect blend alcohol marker paper to 4 x 3.25. I took my pink and main ergonomic blending brush and used Simon Hurley Clear Skies ink to blend some color to my panel followed by a little Overzealous.  Next I used a darker teal color mostly around the outer edges.

I wanted to create a more distressed plaid pattern for the background. I used the Plaid Piece stamp in my Misti. First I used the teal to ink up my stamp and used a baby wipe to soften the edges and remove some of the ink.

To give it a little more interest, I used some of the snowflakes from the Snow Scenes stamp set. I used the teal, Alabaster Pigment Ink, Simon Hurley’s Clear Skies, OverZealous and Later Gator inks.

Before adhering my panel to my Gift Card flap, I wrapped my ribbon around the folded card holder and tied my bow. I secured my ribbon with tissue tape then adhered my panel over the top of it and attached my wreath.

 I added my sentiment and a couple of embellishments.

 I created a variation using a different snowflake die from the same set and made a Christmasy flower and used printed paper. So many fun ways to create one!
