Jeanne here today with a sweet holiday gift card holder.
This time of year everyone needs cute holiday gift card holders. I decorated mine for Christmas but this adorable gift card holder could be used for birthdays, graduations, teacher gifts or any occasion by changing out the colors/papers. I love it when a die set can be used all year long.
- Sizzix Thinlits Die Set (6PK ) Gift Card Package

- Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps -Tattered Christmas
- Sizzix Framelits Tattered Christmas (12PK)
- Have a Little Party Paper Pad

- Sizzix Magnetic Platform
- Sizzix Cutting Pads
- Sizzix Die Brush with Magnetic Pickup Tool
Other Materials Used:

- MISTI (My Sweet Petunia)
I started by making some custom patterned paper using Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps - Mini Swirly Snowflakes and red ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
I then cut my decorated my cardstock the using 662417 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set (6PK ) Gift Card Package and my Big Shot. I used the recommended Sizzix die cutting sandwich for Thinlits and Framelits dies: Sizzix Magnetic Platform (or the Precision Base Plate for Thinlits Dies), Sizzix Cutting Pad, paper, die (cutting side down), Sizzix Cutting Pads. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot Machine. Don't forget your Sizzix Die Brush for getting all those little paper bits from your dies.
Did you see that Sizzix now has patterned paper pads? I used the Have a Little Party Paper Pad for the gift card insert and ribbon. So cute!!!
I sponged a little brown ink on all the edges and assembled.
I added a cute sentiment from Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps -Tattered Christmas and a twine bow. Insert gift card and you have a sweet gift for someone!
Have a great day!
