Gift Card Holder Video

Here’s a gift card holder video and instructions using Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Product Medley.

Gift Card Holder Video

I’m smitten with Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Indigo Product Medley. See this post where I show five cards I created with it. I also detail the products included in the medley. The last post centered around cards. This post shares a quick and easy gift card holder. It can also be used to gift cash! Be sure to watch the video below. It’s a replay of a Facebook Live I recorded on my Facebook business page.

How it Goes Together

Here are the details:

  • Any piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper cut to 8 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches. (I love that you can get three gift card holders from one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock, with scraps to spare.)
  • On the long side, score the card stock at 2 1/2 inches and 6 1/2 inches.
  • Adhere Stampin’ Up!’s Tear and Tape to each side of the “bigger” section to make a pocket. Be sure to put the tape close to the edges so the gift card fits well.
  • Decorate the two front flaps with any Designer Series Paper cut to 3 1/4 inches x 1 3/4 inches and 3 1/4 inches by 2 1/4 inches.
  • Include a sentiment with your choice of greeting to suit your occasions. In my example, I used the birthday sentiment from the Boho Indigo set in conjunction with the Stitched Shapes (circle) and scallop from the Layering Circles Dies.
  • Adhere the sentiment to the front of the gift card holder. Make sure you only put adhesive on the top of the holder. (You don’t want to seal it shut!)
  • I used small, self-adhesive Velcro circles to keep the holder closed.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Today, I’m showing you 5 Boho Indigo Card Samples.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Look on page 9 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It features a gorgeous medley of products called Boho Indigo. I love Night of Navy (and now Misty Moonlight, too). The 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper calls to me. (In fact, I’ve already ordered a refill.)


Boho Indigo Product Medley

The medley sells for $70 and includes a host of really fun elements:

  • An 11-piece photopolymer stamp set with four sentiments: Such Happy News, Thank You, A Bunch of Birthday Love to You, and Sorry You’re Feeling Blue.
  • The 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies.
  • 48 sheets of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (8 each of 6 double-sided designs).
  • Very Vanilla 6 x 6 dry embossed sheets (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Die cuts with gold foil accents (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Night of Navy 1/2 inch Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon (10 yards).
  • Very Vanilla/gold 1/4 inch pleated ribbon (10 yards).
  • Paper flowers (20 each in 2 sizes).

Get a refill kit (which includes the designer series paper, the dry embossed sheets, six sheets of die cuts, and 40 flowers) for $23.

You will need Night of Navy and/or Misty Moonlight ink, card stock (Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight and/or Very Vanilla or Whisper White) and your choice of adhesives to get started.

Other Samples

Once I started creating, the ideas just kept flowing. I’m sharing just 5 Boho Indigo card samples today. At first, I tried to create with what came in the medley. That can be done easily. But with a table full of scraps, I quickly added other elements to stretch this medley even further. Some of the items I pulled in include Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil, additional die cuts, Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack, a couple of punches, and additional sentiments.

Stampin’ Up! Releases Last-Chance List

It’s always sad when Stampin’ Up! releases its last-chance list, its announcement of retiring products. But we know something has to go to make way for new and awesome offerings in the upcoming Annual Catalog which goes live June 3, 2020.And, I’m telling you, the catalog is fabulous. (Demonstrators received their first peek at the new catalog today! Let me know if you want to join and get the same perks!)

Stampin' Up! Releases Last-Chance List

This card features a number of products that won’t be around much longer, including the Perennial Birthday stamp set, the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, and the 2018-2020 In Colors of Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, and Blueberry Bushel. Think stamp pads, ink refills, card stock, coordinating Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and more.

Last-Chance List

Click here to see the entire list of retiring goodies from the Annual Catalog. It includes stamp sets, ink, Designer Series Paper, framelits, punches, embossing folders, ribbons, embellishments, adhesives, and more.  If there’s something you want, I encourage you to order it sooner rather than later. Several items have already sold out. Some of the items on the list are also discounted!

Click here to see the list of retiring product from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.

Order directly from my online store at: or contact me directly to place your order! I’d love to help!

Just a couple of quick notes:

  • The Stampin’ Blends are not retiring; they are just being repacked. Single light and dark options will not be available in the new catalog, so if you need replacement singles, order them now.
  • The Layering Circles, Squares, and Rectangles are also not being retired, but they are being repackaged for the next catalog.

Hinge-Step Stamping

Stampin’ Up’s stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus, helped me achieve the fun design on the front of this card. This tool is a must-have for rubber stamping. It helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage. It works well with cling stamps and photopolymer stamps.

The Stamparatus was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want: two strong magnets to help keep the paper in place; a foam mat for use with photopolymer stamps; rulers on two sides for quick measuring; two open edges so you can use larger paper; two reversible plates for four sides to work with; and magnet storage area. Additional accessories include grid paper, a deluxe foam mat, and a cool carry bag.

Watch this video to learn more about the hinge-stamping technique.
