Gnome gift card 1
Gnome For The Holidays Gift Card Holder
If you are giving a gift card for the holidays, be sure to dress it up with a cute gift card holder! This is one of my go-to card designs this year and it's perfect for adding a gift card!
Background Basics—I started with a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" Shaded Spruce card base decorated with 1-1/4" x 4" strips of retiring Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper on each end. Next, I cut a 8-1/2" x 3-1/4" piece of Shaded Spruce card stock, scored it at 4-1/4" and adhered it in the center of the card base.
Gnome gift card 2

Decorating The Card—I added a 3" x 4" piece of the retiring 'Tis The Season DSP on the card front, along with a 3" x 3/4" strip of Gold Foil for a pop of shine!  I stamped the retiring Gnomes For The Holidays image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die-cut it with a Hippo & Friends die. It's colored with Stampin' Blends Markers in Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Petal Pink and Old Olive. For the ornament, I colored the center with Light Soft Suede Blends and added some Wink of Stella to make it look gold and sparkly. I also added Wink of Stella to the gnome's hat and slippers. It's popped up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I stamped the sentiment in black onto a Whisper White All Dressed Up die-cut and popped it with Dimensionals. I finished by adding some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the focal point.
Gnome gift card 3
Gift Card Holder—I stamped the inside sentiment at the top of a 3" x 4" piece of Whisper White. For the pocket, I cut a 3" x 2" piece of matching DSP, notched out the top with a 1-1/4" Circle Punch and adhered the bottom and side edges to the card with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Perfect!

Tag buffet gold pizza box
Tag Buffet Gold Mini Pizza Box Gift Box
Here's another fun gift card holder idea, that you can also use as a small gift box for treats, cash and more!  I keep lots of Gold Mini Pizza Boxes on hand for just this purpose! It looks like the Tag Buffet stamp set is already sold out, but you could decorate with any fun holiday image (like the Gnomes?!).
Box Décor—I decorated the top of the Gold Mini Pizza Box with a 3" x 3" piece of Plaid Tidings DSP layered onto a 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I added a Whisper White Stitched Shapes circle die-cut popped up for a foundation for the focal point.
Sweet Stocking—I stamped the Tag Buffet stocking image in Memento Black on Whisper White and colored it with Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends. I hand-cut it and popped it up. Then, I stamped an Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Memento Black ink onto 1-1/4" x 3/8" strip of Crumb Cake cardstock and popped that up, too. 
Finishing Touches—I decorated the stocking with a Linen Thread bow and added some Gilded Gems floating around the circle. Lovely!
