When you don’t know what to get someone for Christmas, the go-to is usually to purchase gift cards. So it’s nice to have a fun and festive way to “wrap” those gift cards.
Today, I share a fun fold gift card holder that uses Stampin’ Up!’s Cheers to the Season stamp set and the A Walk in the Forest 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. (Just a couple of quick notes: The Cheers to the Season stamp set is being retired and is on sale for $17.20. The A Walk in the Forest DSP is also being retired, and is available while supplies last. Click here to visit Stampin’ Up!’s online store to see what’s being retired and what’s discounted from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog. Be sure to grab what you want before it’s gone. I don’t want you to be disappointed if something goes out of stock.)
