Christmas Gift Card Holders

Today's gift card holders were inspired by some that I saw in a well known large retail store here in the of my favourite stores.  I bought the Stampin' Up! gift card enclosure pack a while ago and haven't had time to play around with them until now...........

I used a variety of Stampin' Up's punches to cut all the bits out and had a good time putting them all together.   I wasn't sure if I should have made the polar bear all in white but my husband said he thought it looked as if he was wearing a waistcoat and he's seen enough polar bears to know so I left him as he was!!

My favourite is the Father Christmas/Santa Claus.  I inked his red cheeks using a dauber so he looks as if he has been drinking too much schnapps!

There are 10 in a pack of the gift card enclosures and will be really useful with Christmas around the corner......well it's only 3 months away!! 

I had a lot of fun making these and I've got another one that I made for my niece's birthday to show you tomorrow..........

  4. :) Hi Wendy, I am back, again! I'm a USA Demo, myself (hugs)! I just love these and am wondering about making one or the other in a class in two weeks. Any chance you can tell me what you'd used to make the largest circles, which cover the gift card holder, itself? I'll figure out the rest! (Was it all the Circles Framelits?) I don't have the holders myself, to compare things with. Thanks so much for your help; much appreciated! Have a wonderful holiday season! :)

    1. Hi Donna, I used some Spellbinders Nesties Circles S4 dies as I didn't have the SU ones. I can't remember which size I used as I gave the gift card holders away last year as presents & I don't have any more of the blank SU gift card enclosures, but I think it was the largest circle for the snowman and the next size down for Santa. Sorry I can't be of more help and I hope your class goes well. Have a great Christmas too :-) x
