Hello, YNS fans!

It’s Andrea sharing a cute gift card holder. Who says giving gift cards can’t be fun?! (And, really, who doesn’t like receiving them? 😉 )

Using the Gift Card Holder Die, I die-cut the holder from navy cardstock. I masked above and below the score lines on the outside of the holder and ink-blended with Faded Jeans and Black Soot distress inks to create my night-time sky. I flicked on some white paint to represent snowflakes.

I stamped that adorable sheep from Fleece Navidad with Black Olive Dye ink, colored her with Copics, and cut her out with the coordinating dies. The snowy hill was die-cut with the Double Pierced Hills Die Set and trimmed to fit the holder. Onto the hill I stamped a sentiment from Fleece Navidad. I die-cut the trees with the Skating Rink Scene Die Set and colored them with Copics. I adhered the hill to my gift card holder, tucked in the trees, and popped up the sheep with foam tape.

To dress up the front of the holder, I die-cut some plaid paper with the Gift Card Holder Die. I trimmed off all but the front flap and adhered it to my holder. Using another die in the set, I die-cut some pink cardstock and added it to my flap. The sentiment was die-cut with the Holiday Photo Booth Elements Die Set, as were the holly leaves and berries.
