Today’s project was first shared with me by one of my downline at our meeting in October. I’m so thankful that Shannon shared this great idea with me — and I adapted it for our December Club. I gave my ladies two choices — this one made with the Bold Snowflake image — and another one made with the Gingerbread Man. I’ll show you that one tomorrow….
In case you forgot, Stampin’ Up! has some awesome SINGLE images that they are now selling. This Bold Snowflake is one of those images. It coordinates with our Blossom Punch — transforming a flower into a snowflake. How clever is that? Thanks so much, Stampin’ Up! More uses for my punches!
The outside was created with Crumb Cake cardstock. Start with a piece that is 3 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ and Score that piece at 3 1/2″ and 7″. You will have a small 1/2″ piece at one end. Add sticky strip to that end to hold this piece together. However, you’ll want to make sure you punch out your snowflake shape BEFORE adhering it! Add a piece of ribbon and a Designer Ribbon Slide to the front for a festive look.
The inside piece will be slightly different. Start with a piece of cardstock that is 3 1/4″ x 10″. Score that piece at 4″ and 8″. You will have a smaller 2″ piece left at one end. Fold that piece up to for a pocket for your gift card. I’ve stuck a business card in mine for the photo purposes only.
You will stamp and punch your shape to put on the front of the gift card holder. Make sure you slide this part into the Crumb Cake outer part in order to line up the snowflake just right. You can’t tell exactly where to place the punched image if you don’t assemble it first. Hope that makes sense, as I didn’t take a photo of that step.
Don’t forget that Stampin’ Up! offers several new Single Image Stamps. Some of our single stamps allow you to purchase favorite images at a more affordable price — and save your money for more paper, ribbon, adhesive…….and more!
