Hey there! Today starts the final week of Christmas preparations. If it doesn't get done this week it won't happen, will it? I always have big plans to do all kinds of extra things while my family is visiting for the Christmas holidays, but in the end, it's being together and loving each other that matters the most, right?
I have more gift card holders to share with you today, so let's get started!
First, Kathy Johnson used the Hearts Come Home Bundle with Teeny Tiny Wishes to create her fold-out holder. She combined Night of Navy, Whisper White, and a bit of Silver Foil for a classic wintry look. The Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon adds a homespun feel.
Hometown Greetings Edgelits and the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing folder provide lots of fun elements. The gift card pops into the little slit in the center.
Next, Deb McCahan used punch/big shot art to create this adorable singing angel for the front of her gift card holder. She cut vellum with a Bold Butterfly framelit, then embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Folder to create the angel wings. The bow was created with the Bow Builder Punch and the greeting from Jar of Love was framed with the Duet Banner Punch.
The angel is attached to a belly band that also serves as the closure.
Finally, Mary Lang really knocked it out of the ballpark with her creation using non-traditional Wild Wasabi, Berry Burst, and Whisper White. She added a Season of Glitz Mini Gift Bow above the Labels to Love greeting. I was skeptical about putting these adorably tiny bows on anything to mail, but although it seemed smashed when the swap envelope arrived, the bow popped back into shape pretty quick!
Mary is the master of multi-folds and multi-layers! She stamped images from Carols of Christmas and Hang Your Stocking for a festive feel! "Happiness is coming to town!" is also from Hang Your Stocking.
The completely open gift card holder. She stamped a greeting from Christmas Quilt in the center and "tis the Season" from Christmas Pines on the gift card pocket. She added a tree cut with a Card Front Builder Die to finish off with flair.
