My Creative Time: 5 Days of Christmas: Day 4

GOOD MORNING my friends! You are in for a treat this week for our "5 Days of Christmas". You will see tons of AMAZING ideas from tags, treats, cards, gift card holders, etc.... to get your holidays off to a "crafty" good start! We all hope you enjoy everything you will see this week!

Today we are sharing fun and festive gift card holders. I created a simple Santa gift card holder using the Scallop Stitched Envelope Die.
The Scallop Stitched Envelope was cut out using a red card stock. The little scallop flap was cut out again in a white card stock. The envelope was put together, however, the red flap was glued to the front leaving the top open. The sentiment from the Holidays Tags Stamp & Die Set was stamped onto the white scallop flap and then it was glued on top of the red flap. The two gold foil buttons were cut out using the Stitched Button Dies. The belt was cut out using a die from the Fun Vertical Greetings Stamp Set. The belt buckle was first cut out using the Stitched Square Dies. The center of the buckle was cut out using another one of the Stitched Button Dies. The post of the buckle was created using one of the dies from the Fun Stitched Ornaments & More Stamp Set.
The Tag Gift Pocket Die was cut out to hold the gift card. The sentiment and little snowflakes were stamped on the front of the pocket using the Holidays Tags Stamp & Die Set. The little pocket was then added to the red journal die cut. It slips easily into the Santa Envelope.
