Are you ready for a super-easy gift card holder that is also super-cute?  I found just the project!  This time it is from Libby Fens at LibbyStamps.

Check it out…

Oh, I'm in love with this Santa!  It's reminiscent of the Santa Cello Topper that I showed you a while back.  Cute, cute, cute!

Santa gift card holder - parts

Here are all the parts and pieces you'll need:

  • 1 Blushing Bride Clear Circle Die – 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" folded in half and cut with fold showing
  • 1 Blushing Bride Clear Circle Die – for half circle card holder
  • 1 Riding Hood Red Clear Circle Die – for half circle hat, embossed with Petals-a-Plenty Folder
  • 1 Scallop Circle Die – half, embossed with Snow Burst Impressions Folder for beard
  • 1 Whisper White strip – 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" torn into hat rim
  • 1 Silver Glimmer 1-1/4" Circle Punch – for hat
  • 1 Riding Hood Red 3/4" Circle Punch – for nose
  • 2 Black 1/2" Circle Punches – for eyes

Create the base of the card by die-cutting a folded piece of Blushing Bride with the Clear Circle Die leaving a small part of the fold uncut.

Add the hat and beard, with just a small 1-1/4" strip of Blushing Bride showing through.

Next tear around the Whisper White strip and adhere on the hat.

Finally, add the ball for the hat, eyes and nose with Dimensionals.

I sponged his beard with some Frost White Shimmer Paint to make it glisten, too!

The inside of the gift card holder is a really tight fit, so I added two small strips of Sticky Strip to the sides, then a small dab of Multipurpose Glue to the very edge of the bottom, just so the card wouldn't fall out.

You could skip the pocket and simply make it a card, or a gift tag for a large present from Santa Claus, because I'm sure that Santa does papercrafting, right?  (Or, at least his elves do…!).  LOL!

You can purchase all the supplies to create this card at my Stampin' Up! Online Store!
