Gift card holder

Hi there! I wanted to share this gift card holder with everyone. This one is pretty simple to make and is showing up all over the place. Cut a piece of card stock to 4 x 11. Score at 3, 5 1/2 and 8. Fold so that it looks like a "W" and then take a circle punch and and the window word punch and make the opening big enough to fit a gift card. You can see this in the picture below.

The Holly stamp is from Cards by Maria. It was stamped separately, colored with copic ciao markers in emerald green (G05) and then cut out. I used my largest hold punch and punched out some berries out of red card stock. The sentiment is Holiday Script from Lizzie Anne Designs.

As you can see I covered the panels with Christmas paper (that was from last season) and embellished things up a bit. The holiday circle is from Stampin Up! called riveting, which is stamped in Evergreen ink (colorbox) and embossed with clear ep. I also used the same holly stamp with versamark to stamp some holly on the far right side of the holder.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
