CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Gift Card Holder


It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week’s theme is Christmas Gift Card Holders!  I love giving a gift card or certificate in something special.  This pocket holder for Stampin’ Up!’s gift certificates are my favorite to make!  Of course, I’m using the Snow Friends framelits…even looks cute without the stamp set!  I was inspired by a card that Janet Wakeland made using just the cut out snowman shape!

Snow Friends

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake cardstock and scored at 1-1/4 and 4-1/4.  The corners are rounded with the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.
  • A 2-1/4 x 5 piece of Merry Moments Designer Paper is adhered to the bottom portion under the flap.
  • The pocket is formed by added Tear and Tape Adhesive to the insides and then adhering the flap to the front.
  • The Cherry Cobbler piece is cut 2 x 4, then punched with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch and tied with some Silver Cording in a bow.  It is added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure not to adhere to the back of the pocket.
  • A small Silver Metallic Doily is added to the front of the tag.
  • The large snowman from Snow Friends Framelits was cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and added to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Jolly from Christmas Greetings Thinlets was added on top of the snowman with Tombow Monoadhesive Glue.
  • A green Home For Christmas Enamel Dot was placed on the top hat cut from Basic Black cardstock.
  • Finally, the greeting from Embellished Ornaments was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on the flap of the pocket.


I think my customers who buy gift certificates this month will LOVE this holder, don’t you?
