Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Gift Card Holder

Hi Friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month we are sharing gift packaging projects. Each hop participant, talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, created a packaging project. Each month we share projects with various design styles. You may have arrived from Julia Quinn's blog. Wasn't her packaging project wonderful!

I love giving gift cards as gifts. They always seem to be the right size, color, or something the recipient had a hankering for 😉

Another demonstrator, Joy Nelson, shared the template for this gift card holder during a stamping party we held in a private Facebook group, WooHoo Weekend. It was new to me and I fell in love with it! If you would like access to our WooHoo Weekend group, hit me up. I'd love to have you join us.
Whimsy & Wonder DSP with Christmas to Remember sentiment

Inside the card the gift card is revealed

My version features the lovely Whimsy & Wonder designer series paper (DSP) - it's one of my favorite DSPs in the Holiday mini! 

For the sentiment, I used a stamp for the Christmas to Remember stamp set for the front that picked up on the the holly in the DSP. I added a bit of bling with the Gold Holly leaves and rhinestones I colored using a Stampin' Up Flirty Flamingo alcohol Blends marker.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP #156329
Whimsical Trees #156330
Inside I used the holly image from the coordinating Whimsical Trees stamp set with alcohol Blends markers and a greeting from the same set.

Thank you for hopping around the world with us. Keep hopping to see even more projects celebrating December! Click on the Next Blog image below to Joy Nelson's blog see her wonderful project.
