Hello, friends, and welcome back to another Festive Friday! We're getting closer to the holiday season every week and I for one cannot wait! I'm particularly ready for ornaments and jingle bells and iced sugar cookies this year. Anyone else?
I have a set of three gift card holders to share today. They don't match, but they do coordinate thanks to the Holiday Greetings and Leaves & Berries Background sets from Simon Says Stamp. These came together quickly, but they still look lovely which is what I'm usually going for this time of year.
For the first gift card holder, I gold embossed the leafy "Merry" image from the sentiment set onto a white Gift Card Cozy. I very simply colored the leaves and berries with Zig markers and embellished the berries with Garnet glitter. Simple, but the end result is sophisticated.
The second gift card holder is even simpler. I began by die cutting my Gift Card Cozy shape and then masked off everything except the front panel with post-it notes. I stamped the Leaves & Berries Background in Rockin' Red on the red cardstock to give a subtle tone-on-tone appearance. Then, I just heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Greetings set using gold powder. I love how the greeting pops with that gold embossing!
The third gift card holder is just as easy. I began by embossing the sentiment using gold powder. Then, I stamped the snowflakes (also from the sentiment set) using Versamark. While the ink was still sticky, I sprinkled it with Pearl Perfect Pearls. The powder sticks to the ink and gives the snowflakes a shimmer without the texture of embossing powder. I really love that subtle sparkle!
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you're enjoying getting crafty as the weather turns chilly. Have a wonderful weekend!
