Need a gift card holder for this Christmas? Then follow along and make this gift card holder using Stampin’ Up! products. I’ve used the Beary Cute Bundle and the coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP), Beary Christmas. If you don’t need a gift card holder, this would make a great Christmas card.
- Old Olive card stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
- Designer Series Paper 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and 2 @ 1 1/4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic White card stock 2 1/2″ x 5 3/8″, 3″ x 3″ and a scrap for the greeting
- Mossy Meadow card stock 3″ x 3″
Start by scoring the 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Old Olive card stock @ 1 1/2″ and 4 1/4″. Fold along the score lines and burnish with a Bone Folder. Add the 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of DSP to the front of the card base with adhesive. Add the other 2 pieces of DSP to the inside flap and to the far right of the inside of the card base.
Using the smallest circle of the Deckled Dies, die cut half a circle from the folded in edge of the card base. Place the die nearest the center of the flap but only cut half of a circle. Place Tear & Tape along the 2 edges of this flap. Remove the backing and adhere to the inside of the card.
Using the Deckled Circles Dies, die cut a Mossy Meadow and a Basic White circle. For the Basic White circle, I used the 5th die from the smallest (die) and for the Mossy Meadow circle, I used the 6th die from the smallest. Run the Basic White circle through the Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder.
Using the Beary Cute Bear Punch, punch a bear from the DSP. Adhere the Basic White circle to the Mossy Meadow circle with adhesive. Using Dimensionals, adhere the punched bear to the center of the circles. Place adhesive behind the left side ONLY of the circles and adhere to the center of the front of the card base.
Time for some stamping! Using Real Red ink, stamp Merry Christmas onto a scrap piece of Basic White card stock, flag the ends. On the 2 1/2″ x 5 3/8″ of Basic White card stock, stamp the Warm Wishes greeting in Real Red ink. Then I fussy cut a small bear from the DSP and adhered them to the inside of the card. Using Real Red ink, I also stamped a hat for the small bear and a scarf for the bear on the front of the card. After fussy cutting both, I adhered them to the 2 bears. This left me plenty of room to write a personal note to the recipient!Product List
