Gift Card Holder via Pinterest
Every year, I give out gift cards for Christmas. Not because it is easy (I mean fighting the mall traffic and standing in those crowded lines isn't easy!), but because it allows the recipient to choose a gift they truly like/want and not have to either return the gift or give it to goodwill.
Normally I just wrap the gift card by placing it in a cute box or bag. This year, I thought I could make some cards! So off to Pinterest I went and found lots of ideas.
This idea came from Inking Idaho.
I used white card stock as the base. Then I dug into my Christmas paper stash and everything else I used are papers/stickers from the Holiday Slab by Rob & Bob Studio (back from 2006!!!). I rounded all the edges because I am currently into that look.
Here is a peek inside--this is not the gift card that will be accompanying this card--just the only one I had on hand.
Dimensions of the card:
White Card Base- 6.5 x 5
Striped paper-6 x 4.5
Green solid-5.5 x 4
Burgundy/Pink-4.75 x 3.75 (made from the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge) Here is the link
Plaid paper-5.75 x 3.75 (made from the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge) This time I only put paper in 1/2 the size of the cut so that the paper fit--you can always just trace and cut the plaid paper without the Cricut machine though.
One down...(I haven't even started shopping yet--shhhh!)
