Hi Stampers. I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and were able to spend it with family and friends. I spent the morning baking pies and holiday bread (a family recipe). My husband and I then joined family in town for a wonderful dinner with great company. We opted out of the Black Friday madness and we stayed home. Marc hung the Christmas lights on the house and I hung out in my craft studio and stamped. 🙂
Today’s card doubles as a gift card holder. It starts out with a card base that is 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″. There is an additional score line 2.5″ inches from one of the sides. Next there is a layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock cut at 5.25″ x 4″, 2.75″ x 4″ and 2.25″ x 4″. Next up is a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White card stock and Be Merry DSP 2.5″ x 3.75″ and 2″ x 3.75.
For the cover I used a scrap of Cherry Cobbler and a scrap of Whisper White card stock to make a stocking using the Christmas Stocking thinlit dies. After cutting them out using my Big Shot, I adhered it to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.
On the inside, I stamped the greetings and the holly using Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green ink. I used my 1 3/8″ circle punch to punch a half circle where the gift card will go. I did this after adhering the layers, but before I used the tear and tape on the top and bottom making the pocket to hold the gift card. The half circle allows you to grab the card to remove it.
