Festive & Fun Happy Christmas Wishes Gift Card Holder

I received this adorable fun-fold card as a swap from Gwen Duckworth. If you love to color, this is a really fun holiday stamp set! With minimal coloring, Gwen made this card look festive and wintery!

Background Basics

Gwen started with a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Basic White cardstock, scored at the 2″ and 5-1/2″ marks. She folded it in half with the smaller panel to become a gift card pocket on the inside.

She embossed three pieces of Basic White cardstock with the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder: 3-1/4″ x 4″ and two pieces measuring 1-3/4″ x 4″. She adhered the largest piece to the 3-1/2″ card front and one of the smaller pieces to the inside card that shows on the front.

The final embossed piece goes on the inside panel. Gwen adhered the sides of the pocket with a small bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. She also stamped a Festive & Fun sentiment on the inside with Real Red ink. I love this classic gift card holder style…and it works equally well for cash, too!

Gwen wrapped some White Iridescent Ribbon around the gift card pocket, securing the ends underneath the focal point layers.

Focal Point

Gwen die-cut a large Basic White Deckled Rectangles piece and stamped a Festive & Fun image on the front with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. She colored in the image with Stampin’ Blends Markers: Smoky Slate for the rhinoceros and sled, Real Red for the scarves, skates, bows and hats, and Lemon Lime Twist for the wreath, scarf, presents, earmuffs and hats. She finished up with a Real Red Festive & Fun sentiment.

The stamped piece is layered onto a Real Red Deckled Rectangles die-cut and popped up onto the card front. Cute, cute, cute!

Festive & Fun Fa La La Card

This colorful Festive & Fun swap card was created by Karin Braxton. That Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper really gives it a fun, festive look!

Background Basics

Karin started with a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ piece of Poppy Parade cardstock, scored at the 3-1/4″ mark. She decorated the front panel with a 2-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Merry Bold & Bright DSP layered onto a 3″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White.

Focal Point

Karin stamped the Festive & Fun image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Basic White Tailor Made Tags die-cut. She also colored the image with a variety of Stampin’ Blends Markers: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Pool Party.

Finishing Touches

She tied some Silver & White Sheer Ribbon to the top of the tag, then popped it up onto the card front with Dimensionals. She finished by adding a couple of Granny Apple Green Iridescent Adhesive-Backed Discs for some shine. So fun!

Inside The Card

Karin added a 1″ x 5-1/4″ strip of coordinating Merry Bold & Bright DSP along the side of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock layer. She added a Memento Black Festive & Fun sentiment.
