Stampin' Friends - November Happy Holidays Hop!


Welcome everyone!  Today is blog hop day!  This week I am hopping along with my buddies at the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop.  If you are visiting all the blogs, you have just arrived from Robyn's page.  I hope that you are enjoying all the creations and that mine will not disappoint!


As the holiday's are fast approaching, now is the time to think about making those handmade greeting and gift card holders.


As I recently attended a Stampin' Up event, I needed to create a gift card holder for a organized swap I was participating in.  With my life running at the speed it is, of course I didn't begin my gift card holder until 8:00 the night before..... eek!  I guess I work better under pressure.  I finally dozed off about 2:00 in the morning, but I was able to create 20 of them for swapping.  


In coming up with my GC creation, I decided to use items from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalog.  I loved the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and the coordinating builder punch so much, I made a greeting card using the same stamp set and DSP accents to create the greeting card.


For the card front and the base of the GC holder I used the crumb cake card stock.  Basic black and real red were my accent color combination.  There are so many beautiful designs on the Candy Can Lane designer series paper.  I used my blender pen to color in the antlers of my Reindeer and of course he had to be Rudolph!


My gingerbread man was a little spiffy with a bow tie and a touch of bling with the rhinestone accent.  The real red stitched edge ribbon was used as a decorative piece as well as the pull tab as it wrapped around the gift card.  Isn't the mini jingle bell adorable?  The best part of this card holder is that I could cut 4 out of one sheet of card stock.

I hope you have enjoyed my items that I have shared.  Be sure to leave a comment for an opportunity to win multiple prizes.  Hop along with the rest of the gang!  Be sure to include #SFNovHop as part of your comments.  For every blog you comment on with the hash tag, the more chances you have to win!   It is almost like Christmas!!!  Ha ha!


We would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season.  Enjoy your friends and family!  As always, Happy Stampin'!
