Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Pop-Up Gift Card Holder for the Holidays!


Hello friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month our theme is holidays and includes holiday-themed projects created by talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share fun projects and various design styles. You may have arrived from Sue Boerner’s blog. Her holiday project was fabulous!

I love cards that have an interactive element to them. When I saw a pop-up gift card holder I knew I had to make a Christmas version! My Christmas version was inspired by Libby Fens' tutorial (click here to see it).

My project started with the Snowflake Splendor designer series paper (DSP) and coordinating Winter Snow embossing on an oval die cut. I added a greeting from the versatile Banner Year stamp set and layered the stamped greeting using the Pick a Label punch.

I've been a bit obsessed with adding metallic mesh ribbon to my holiday cards to add a touch of icy sparkle. For this card, I folded it over then over again to get a narrower ribbon which I tied around the DSP since I didn't want the ribbon to show when the card was opened. Blue Adhesive-Backed gems added more sparkle.

The snow theme was carried inside with the Snowman Season stamp set and Pacific Point ink.
