Gift Card Holders

 I made several gift card holders. This one is using Cherry Cobbler (119685) and Lucky Limeade (122926) cardstocks, the Letters to Santa DSP (122349),  Scallop Oval (119859) and Large Oval (119855) , Large (11987)  and Extra Large(119866) Tag and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border (119275) punches. The stamp is from Dear Santa (123832/123834) set in the Holiday Mini. I used Lucky Limeade (119801) and Cherry Cobbler (119681) Stampin'Write markers to ink the stamp.
 The tag was tied onto the package with some Linen Thread(10199)
 Here, I used Real Red (102482) cardstock as a base and the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty DSP (124004)
I punched a ribbon with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (119275) and added a Real Red 5/8 " Satin ribbon (117286) bow.
 The tag is actually from the Two Tags Bigz Die (115954) with some Real Red (102482) cardstock I used  Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty DSP (124004) and punched a Scallop Circle (119854). A Very Vanilla (101650) layer was created with the 3/16" Corner Rounder (119871) punch
I attached a gift card/ticket holder to the front of this package; it was created by folding a piece of Real Red (102482) cardstock with 3 scores, creating a flap at the top. I used the Letters to Santa DSP (122349) to decorate the base and to create the Rosette. I used my Simply Scored scoring tool (122334) to score two 12 x 2 inch strips of  Cherry Cobbler and two 12 x1 3/4" strips DSP every 1/8th inch. I used a 2 3/8" scallop Circle punch(118874) to glue the center down and put some of the Dazzling Details (124117) all over this scallop circle. I topped this with a Doily Triple Layer punch (122465) from Silver (120005) glimmer paper and a Whisper White Snowflake punch (119852) and a Silver Brad (104336). I used the other Real Red (102482) tag from the Two Tags Bigz Die (115954) and attached some Doily Triple Layer (122465) punches in both Red (121790) and Silver (120005) glimmer papers with a Silver Glimmer Brad from the Basics collection(121003).
This one was so pretty when I got done with it!

One word of caution though....... you have to remember to indicate somewhere or somehow that the recipient needs to open the giftcard/ticket holder on the package. It was almost 3 days later that my Aunt realized that there was something in the embellishment on the front of the package.

I think I am at the end of my gift wrapping etc from Christmas. I hope you haven't been too bored with them. I had fun with it all and did not buy one bit of wrapping paper this year.

Thanks for your patience!!
