Gift Card Holders + Blog Hop + GIVEAWAYS

Welcome! During the holidays, I make *a lot* of gift card holders. And honestly? Today’s pocket design is my new favorite! And oh so easy to do…

Let’s face it – sometimes giving a gift card is the best gift option. I like to make the gift more personal by creating a special handmade holder.

By using the Pretty Pink Posh Peekaboo Windows Dies, I was quickly and easily able to create flaps on the front of my card that reveal a gift card inside. Be sure to watch the video to see how easy it is – all you need is the die and foam tape! (You can also use a craft knife to create your own flaps if you want to.)

I did some fun coloring of images from the Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Friends and Winter Wonderland Stamp Sets with my Tombow Markers and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pens on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper. I highly recommend trying this combination for coloring! After die cutting the images with the coordinating dies, I adhered them to the flap… being sure not to hinder the flaps from opening.

I used sentiments from the Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Friends and Winter Wonderland Stamp Sets. I also added Pretty Pink Posh Winter Sparkle Sequins.

Isn’t that little penguin the cutest?!
