Facebook Live - 11/7/21- Gingerbread & Peppermint

Real Red - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2; scored at 4 1/4

Creative Stampers Blog Hop - Quick Christmas Gifts

 


This month on the Creative Stampers blog hop we are concentrating on quick Christmas gifts.  I thought a gift card holder would be perfect!  I used the Peaceful Deer bundle to make my gift card holder.


Dimensions:
Soft Succulent - 4 1/4 x 11; scored at 5 1/2 and 1 1/2
Designer Series Paper - 1 1/4 x 4 (2) for the inside and 3 3/4 x 4 for the outside
Basic White - 3 3/4 x 4; scrap for deer
Scrap of Soft Succulent for circle

I stamped the deer in Cherry Cobbler on the scrap on Basic White and punched it with the deer punch. The Soft Succulent is a 2 1/4" circle.  I also used a 3/4" punch on the inside to make it easier to get the gift card out. Such an easy project to make for everyone on your list that is hard to shop for.

Want to see more quick Christmas projects? Here's a sneak peek of my project in the Creative Stampers Tutorial. You can get this tutorial by placing an order with me, purchasing it for $22 or for free by being a part of my team.

This is the first card I made


Dimensions:
Thick Basic White - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2; scored at 4 1/4
Basic White - 3 3/4 x 5


And this is the 2nd card I made

Dimensions:
Sahara Sand card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Designer Series Paper - 2 x 5 1/2
Basic White - approx. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (for die cut)
Scrap of Sahara Sand

You can find the video demonstration for both of these cards HERE

Just a couple more cards using this gorgeous bundle... These were the other 2 cards from my friend Kay's class.
The gorgeous gold stripes between the Designer Series Paper is gold leafing - so much prettier in person!

This was a quick card to make but so gorgeous.  The Designer Series Paper is the star!  The small leaves were die cut out of gold vellum - so pretty!
