Hi friends! Well, the first quarter of 2021 is history as they say! Wow! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #33 – April Anything Christmas Goes! I have an adorable Christmas gift card holder to share today, created with the Prickley Pear Stamps Build A Cat stamps and dies. OMG, can you say a-DOR-able?! I love playing with these cat stamps and dies!
This gift card holder is one of my most favorite fun folds because it’s so versatile and can be used for any occasion that you could possibly think of! In addition to a gift card, you could tuck cash or handmade coupons or whatever you want in this – think outside the box!
I used a Christmas patterned paper which I paired with red textured cardstock to embellish the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock base. I stamped a sentiment for the inside, trimmed it and layered it on red cardstock. I stamped the cat in black ink on a white cardstock scrap, colored him with alcohol markers and cut him with the coordinating dies. I cut a stitched mini scallop circle on which I adhered the cat to use as the front closure.
And one more look… love, love, love this! This fold is probably one of the most-used in my tutorial arsenal!
