Pals Blog Hop-Last Minute Gift/Card Ideas

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Last Minute Gifts/Cards to inspire you with your holiday list. We really hope that you will be enjoy all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

If you do not own the Mini Pocket Envelope dies (159167), put it on your wishlist! These dies are so simple to use & can be used for many occasions. One run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine it cuts & scores the template for you. Since gift cards & cash are on everyone’s list this year, the dies made it easy to make handmade holders.

Step by Step Tutorial

– Begin with a 5 ¼ x 4 ½ piece of DSP; I used Celebrate Everything DSP (retiring January 4th) & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Mini Pocket Envelope die

– Use a bone folder to burnish score/fold lines; then glue the 2 flaps using Tombow liquid glue.

– Use a scrap piece of Poppy Parade card stock & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Spruced Up Outlines dies .

– Use a scrap piece of 2022-2024 In Colour Glimmer Paper & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Spruced Up Outlines dies. I used the lighter part of the ombre towards the top of the ornament.

– Working from the backside using dimensionals, line up the ornament outline with the solid ornament. Once you have a good connection around the ornament, attach it to the Mini Pocket Envelope

– Stamp sentiment from Christmas to Remember on a scrap piece Basic White card stock using Night of Navy ink. Then, fussy cut & adhere to glimmer paper using Stampin’ Seal glue.

– For an extra bling, I used 3 Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Below are a few other gift card holders I made using other dies from the Spruced Up Outline dies, Kindest Gnomes & Santa from the November Paper Pumpkin kit

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on January 11th when our theme will be Sale-A-Bration Time. The design team will showcase projects made from Sale-A-Bration items.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.

Last Day of Sale-a-bration

I know I have been a litte quite on the blog lately. I had surgery on 8/17 to replace my ACL. I completely torn it during a game in June. It has been difficult to get into the craft room. I was able to get in the past few days to make some cards. It felt so good to be back in there with the creative juices going! I had to keep my cards simple as I was not able to be in there very long. I CASEd this card using the Sale-a-bration (SAB ) Designer Series Paper (DSP) Rings of Love. Today is the last day to order the paper.

Here is a slightly different variation of the card that I also CASEd
