A Snowman Gift Card Holder with Lucy!

A Snowman Gift Card Holder with Lucy!

create a snowman gift card holder with Laura Milligan and Lucy Live Stampin' Up! Earn Free Bees

Lucy was here on Friday and she has been wanting to do a Facebook Live –  so we did one  on my I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

We created a cute Snowman (or for Lucy it was a Snow- woman!) gift card holder.  It’s that time of year – I give a lot of Gift Cards and love this idea – inspired by a card I received from Connie Babbert.

With just a few supplies, most of which you probably have on hand, this gift card is quick and easy to make!  The Gift Card slips behind the brim of the hat – and I love that it will fit in a regular envelope for mailing – if you need to put yours in the mail.

BRIGHT BAUBLES CLING STAMP SET
Stamp bright and beautiful Christmas baubles with the Bright Baubles Stamp Set. The delicate line images are bold enough to be used on their own, stamped in just ink, or heat embossed. Or you can color them using your favorite coloring tools and techniques. The ornament images are large enough to make tags for gifts or treats for neighbors and friends. You can also stamp them on your annual Christmas cards. The greetings are designed so you can mix and match and customize the sentiments for all your Christmas projects.

DELICATE BAUBLES DIES
Create opulent ornaments for cards or tags with the Delicate Baubles Dies. The dies cut out full ornament shapes and delicate overlays to create more detailed ornaments. Dies are sized perfectly for large tags for gift and treat packages. The die set includes a ribbon piece to create the illusion of hanging ornaments. Mix and match ornaments and overlays for a variety of looks, or use Paper Snips Scissors to cut apart the images to create unique elements.

Bright Baubles Bundle Fun Fold Gift Card Holders

Bright Baubles Bundle Fun Fold Gift Card Holders

I created one gift card on my Facebook Live yesterday – but am sharing two today.  They both feature the Bright Baubles bundle – and are gift card holders!  I know I sure use a lot of gift card holders this time of year and hopefully this will give you an idea for a quick and easy gift card holder –  and they fit in a regular size envelope, so they can be mailed!

Both cards feature the retired Be Dazzling Specialty Paper – I have some extra packets and am offering an ordering incentive for this week – while my supply lasts!  We all loved this paper – and it sold out during Saleabration – but I have some extras to share!

You can click below to watch how to assemble the gift card holders!

On my Night of Navy card, I used the “new to me” Star Crossed embossing folder – it’s so cool!  I had overlooked it in our Mini Catalog but am glad that I discovered it recently!  It embosses both a checkered pattern and a star pattern.  Love it!

Quick Measurement for the Gift Card base is 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 9.
