New At SU November Blog Hop Beary Christmas Gift Card Holder

Christmas is less than 6 weeks away, so why not join the New At SU November Blog Hop as the Design Team shares projects and ideas to help you dress up giving those gift cards and gift certificates. Take a journey along our hop and see all the wonderful ideas to help spark your creativity. I hope our projects will help spark your creativity.
For my Christmas Gift Card Holder, I chose to use products from the Beary Christmas Suite in the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog. I love the whimsy of the designs in the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper and I thought it would be perfect for a fun card design. I was inspired by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Jessica Taylor, after watching her You Tube video here and created a slightly modified version of her design to create my own.

This gift card holder is simple to create and offers so many wonderful possibilities to decorate it and personalize it to suit the person receiving it. From one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, you can create two gift card holders, so it is a great way to create a several designs to have on hand ready for whenever you need them. After scoring the card base at 2 1/4" & 5 1/2", I used the 2 3/8" Circle Punch along the edge of the flap (to make it easier to slide the gift card in and out) before adhering it with Tear & Tape Adhesive to create the pocket for the gift card. To create the card front, I adhered the designer series paper panel to the Real Red cardstock layer. I punched out the larger polar bear from another sheet of the designer series paper, using the Beary Cute Punch. I also fussy cut out one of the small bears to complete the design and added both the bears to the bottom right corner of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Beary Cute stamp set using White embossing powder. I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut the sentiment label and adhered it to the top of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I adhered the card front panel to the card base, making sure not to add adhesive on the back of the right side of the card front. For the inside layer, I stamped the snowflakes and small polar bear images onto the Basic White cardstock layer using Balmy Blue Classic ink. I then adhered the layer to the Real Red cardstock matte layer before adhering to the inside of the card, making sure it is hidden behind the card front when it is closed. The only embellishment I added was a small Red Festive Pearl in the center of the bow on the card front.
