Snowman Season, Let it Snow, Christmas or Holiday Gift Card Holder, Weekend Project

Last month at Terri's Stamping Extravaganza, I saw this cute gift card holder that I REALLY wanted to make.  I have not had much time to play with the fun pictures I took at that event.  If you live near Medina, MN this is a fun and free event to go to. You get to see all of the new items in the catalogs.  September was the Holiday Extravaganza.  I believe the next one will be in January for the Sale-a-Bration and spring catalog event.   

This was a very easy and fun gift card to make. I don't usually make the smaller gift cards because I don't use them as much as I would a full-sized card. But this was just too cute not to make. The Whisper White base was cut 6" x 4".  I cut the Real Red piece 3-3/4" x 2-3/4".  And I cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Let it Snow" 12" x 12" specialty paper pack.  It's a specialty paper because there's some embossed images in it that can be punched out with the matching punch.  It's a fun and cute set and it isn't as expensive as some of those that have die cuts with them.  

I stamped the words using Real Red ink and I die 
cut them using the "Nesting Circles" dies.

I tied a Baker's Twine bow and set it in place using a tiny glue dot.  And I used glue dots to hold the mittens in place.  The mittens are from the "Let it Snow" embellishment kit.  This kit has so many fun elements in it.  There's the mittens, both right and left hand (smart), there's caps, scarves, glittery Washi tape, felt snowballs (they look like styrofoam but they are really felt) and a sheet of snowman noses, arms, coal eyes and coal buttons.  It's SO cute and SO fun!

You can see Terri's card here.  She has a video that tells how to make the slit for the gift card to fit into and how to place the front panel so the gift card has room to be inserted and removed.  Hop on over there and have a look.  She is a very talented stamper and has lots of other fun things to see and do.  You will be amazed and will be spending some time there!  You've been warned!! LOL  My gift card was one I had saved from Target a few years ago.  It's perfect for this holder!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
