Christmas Classics, Joy of Christmas, Gift Card Holder Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick gift holder card to share with you. These are very easy to make and can be used for any occasion too.  Just swap out the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and you're set for the occasion you need. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Poppy Parade card stock. It was cut in half on the short side and after cutting it measured 4-1./4" x 11". Then it was folded in half. On the front half it was scored at 2-1/4".  Set your piece on your scoring board and score at 2-1/4" and then at 5-1/2". Fold the card in half like you normally would do. Then take the front scored piece and fold it inward onto itself.  I took a 1/4" circle punch and punched partial circle to make it easier to get the gift card out.

Next the pocket was glued on each end and set aside to set up. 

While the glue is drying I cut a 3" x 4" piece of DSP from the "Joy of Christmas" 12" x 12" package. I taped it on the front of the card. Did you ever have an issue taping the DSP on? I had the piece set one way and it didn't quite look right so I turned it 180 degrees and it looked worse, so I turned it back.  It's all in what your eye sees, right?

The words are from "Christmas Classics" set and were stamped using Garden Green ink on a 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" piece of Basic White card stock. They were layered on a 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" piece of Poppy Parade card stock. I originally had used Poppy Parade ink and Garden Green card stock and it looked awful so I went with the Garden Green ink and Poppy Parade card stock. I taped the two layers together and set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. Be careful not to get the Dimensionals on the inside part of the card. To avoid that I line up the piece where it needs to be, then I hold it in place and using a pencil I make light marks on the back of the word piece.  This way you avoid the inside piece.

It's a bit plain looking but it's still nice. It's a quick and easy card to make.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's gift card holder card,
