Hello everyone! Stacy here with Day 2 of Power Poppy's 12 days of Christmas! If you missed Katie's post yesterday, you can check out the kick-off to our festivities HERE! Instead of offering up one theme for our monthly Power & Spark Challenge, we are giving you 12 days of Christmas-themed ideas. All you have to do is try one and then link up your creation here on the Power and Spark Challenge post for December. Each time you try one of our projects and link it up, you are entered to win a $50 shopping spree to the Power Poppy Shop! Ideas & chances to win? That sounds like a win-win to me!
Today, I am sharing an easy way to whip up a gift card holder for this time of year. So let's get started...
Under Glass Christmas Traditions is the stamp set I choose for my gift card holder and some designer paper. Decorative die is optional.
As you can see, I used an oval die shape. You can use an oval punch if you have one instead. This is used to create the opening needed to see the gift card inside. Die cut or punch desired opening.
I will admit -- I think I adore this little globe on the front of the gift card holder. Santa just looks so cute with his reindeer, doesn't he? :-) I colored the image with various Copic markers and then adhered it to some black cardstock and cut around for an edge. This is popped up using dimensionals as well. Some gold cord is wrapped around the base layers before adding to the gift card front.
In the inside, I added a sentiment panel on the left using the globe. I then colored over the word YOU. For an added touch, I stamped a bow and popped it up in the corner of the pocket and added some sparkle. Voila!
Hope you have a chance to create and have fun with us during our 12 Days of Christmas festivities! Again, if you try this little gift card holder, be sure to link your creation back to the Power and Spark Challenge HERE.
You'll want to swing back by for day 3 and join the wonderful Tosha tomorrow! She will be joining us with an idea on how to give the average gift bag that hand-crafted charm!
