3 Gift Card Holders for you today.

I have recently become addicted to Lauren Meader's My Timeless Templates from Papertrey Ink. They are so much fun to create and decorate. One of the selection's last month was a set of gift card holders. Since my most of my gift giving consists of gift cards and cash. (My kids are adults) this is the perfect way to me to feel like I'm still wrapping a gift and they still have something to open.
You will also see that I used the same background stamp on all three holders. This is a background stamp from Hero Arts called Dots and Flowers. https://shop.heroarts.com/products/productdetail/part_number=S5213/1571.0 I just love vintage look and it is also versatile as well.


The first card holder uses the 2009 Holiday Tag set from Papertrey Ink. The ink and blue paper Enchanted Evening by Papertrey Ink. I also added a bit of red bling and some glitter on the tag. The patterned paper is from my stash and is by Daisy D's.





This second card holder uses the 2009 Holiday Tag set as well from Papertrey Ink. The ink colors are Pure Poppy and New Leaf. The gingham ribbon is from my stash. I also added a bit of bling and glitter to this tag.
I kept this 3rd tag pretty simple. The Papetrey Ink items are Chocolate Brown ink and paper. I also used their Kraft paper for the main part of the gift card holder. The Gingerbread man stamp is one of the $1 stamps from Snag 'm Stamps. I used my white gel pen to make the faux stitching and to highlight the Gingerbread man. The sentiment is from the Holiday Tree set. The mini red buttons and ribbon is from my stash.
I hope you enjoyed these projects today and will leave me a comment to let me know what you think. Thanks for taking a peek.
