Over the weekend I had a request for a gift card so I went looking in my stash and came up empty.  About this time last year I came across a very cute idea from Vicki over at Its A Stamp Thing.  She made the cutest little gift card.  It looks just like a Christmas Present.  So I got busy and made a version of my own.

I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock #119685 4.25 x 11 and scored at 4.25.  The fold.  That left my top piece a little long, so trim it to the size that you like.  Next I found some retired Christmas dp and cut it just 1/8" smaller.  I had just received some of our new Silver Glitter Paper #124005 and thought I would use that for my box lid.  So sparklely!!!  For my bow on top I used our Small and Large Oval Punches.  To make the bow cut  a 2" strip of glitter paper.  Holding your paper vertically punch an oval with your small punch first, then go back with the larger oval, center it up over the opening and punch.  Viola' you have a perfect bow piece.  Do this several times and arrange them the way you like.  My box top didn't want to lay flat for me, so I stamped my sentiment and used a round circle punch and then nested it with a scallop circle.  This does the trick very nicely, just be sure you know where it is going first before you adhere it with dimensionals.  TIP:  If you plan on mailing this be sure when you attached your bow pieces that it doesn't extend over the envelopeFor some added embellisment I punched a Snowflake with the snowflake punch #119852 and added some more bling from our Basic Rhinestones #119246.

For the inside I cut another piece of Christmas Designer Paper and used our Word Window Punch for the Gift Card to slip into.  Starting on one side punch your window and then slide it down to the other side and punch again.  This gives you a large enough opening for you gift card to fit into.

Well thats it for me today.  I hope you can take advantage of Stampin' Ups annual Christmas Extravaganza.  You can shop at my On Line Store 24/7.  Once again thanks for all your support and if I can help with any of your shopping or papercarfting please contact me.  I would love to help.  Remember for every $50 you will earn a Sandy' Star.
