I made this gift card holder using the Top Note Die for the Big Shot and the Handmade Holidays Card elements kit. I really loved the ease of this holder. The inside features a pocket made from the Top Note that was cut about 1/3 of the way down. All supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamp Set: To You and Yours
Cardstock: Mellow Moss
Ink: Ruby Red
Accessories: Top Note Die, Alpine Ribbon Originals, Handmade Holidays Card Elements kit, Dimensionals, Glue dots
I've made so many gift card holders over the last few weeks but this one has got to be the easiest. I love being able to just pick something out and put it on a page and it looks great because it's all coordinated!

I used the now retired On Board Simon Lower letters (how I wish they were still available) and covered them in Old Olive Craft Ink. I immediately (while they were still wet) covered them in Heat & Stick powder and heated it up then dumped the Celery Chunky Sprinkles glitter on top. This made them really nice and sparkly, just perfect for the holiday season! The banner was cut out using the Stampin' Up! exclusive Big Shot Pennant die. I have really grown to love this die. I used Textured Chocolate Chip cardstock for my backing and then the Holiday Treasures DSP for the inside part of the banner. I used the large scallop Big Shot die for the scallops and then mounted my letters on those. The scallops were cut using Riding Hood Red cardstock. The pom pons on the end are also made using the Pennant die. I cut out the poinsettia pieces from one sheet of the DSP and then used dimenionals to pop them up. I really love the way they look! The banner is strung on the Chocolate Chip felt ribbon from the Alpine Ribbon Originals which is offered in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Below you will see the individual letter pennants. I didn't think to take them before I strung them up, so I'm sorry about the weird angles. I hope you enjoy this fun project! I really loved making it and know it will keep the Stampin' Spot bright and cheery the whole month long!
Have a great rest of the day everyone and safe shopping tomorrow!!
