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.)

And, here’s another one (below) using Stampin’ Up! Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper and the Joy to You stamp set (both retiring).
And, I have a video with step-by-step instructions from my craft room in Mesa, Arizona, where I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Be sure to catch the Facebook live replay below.

Welcome to the Stampers Dozen November Blog Hop! We’re so glad you joined us. This month, the theme is Thankful Hearts. You’ll see cards and projects focusing on gratitude and thanks, celebrating the month of Thanksgiving. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop to gain a host of fall crafting inspiration. Look for a list of participating stampers at the end of this post.
Cheers to the Season Thankful
If you’re like me, you often appreciate a simple card that’s easy to replicate. That’s why I like the sketch, or design, of this card. The focal point includes one large image in a circle, bookended by two other smaller circles. You could create a handful of these quickly and easily. And, think of the many stamp sets and patterned paper you can add to this layout.
Here are the products I used to create this thankful card:
Cheers to the Season Stamp Set. Gold heat emboss leaf image with gold embossing on Wild Wheat Card Stock. Die cut with largest circle from Stylish Shapes Dies.
Die cut two of the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies from the 2023-2025 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.
Emboss a piece of Pecan Pie Card Stock with the Fall Leaf 3D Embossing Folder (Online Exclusive)
Layer on Wild Wheat Card Stock measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Wrap Gold 1/8 Trim (Online Exclusive) around and tie a bow
Add 2023-2025 In Color Dots (Wild Wheat)
I love this stamp set because it covers a range of occasions: fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and new year’s day. Think of using the “cheers” image for a birthday card, anniversary card, or event wedding card.
Are you in the mood for another fall card? When Stampin’ Up! first introduced the new 2023-2025 In Colors, I just knew the color palette would work really well for fall-themed cards, especially the Wild Wheat.
With today’s card, I feature a flap fun fold, Stampin’ Up’s Cheers to the Season Stamp set (Stampin’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog), the Wild Wheat In Color Luster Specialty Paper (Annual Catalog), and Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder (Online Exclusive). Be sure to watch the video below to view step-by-step instructions for creating this handmade greeting card at home.

I tried something a little different with the leaf design from the Abundant Beauty Decorative Mask collection. Be sure to watch the video below to see step-by-step instructions for creating this card. It’s a new-to-me heat embossing technique.
Cherry Cobbler card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 1 13/4 lightly taped to the back of the leaf design mask. (Rub card stock with embossing buddy before taping.)
Liberally apply Versamark ink on top of mask, ensuring you have good ink coverage.
Remove card stock from mask. Cover with gold embossing folder, tapping off the excess.
Heat with heat tool, heating all surfaces.
Add to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4 embossed with a folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Add a strip (1/4 x 5 1/4) of Gold Foil adjacent to the embossed piece.
On a Very Vanilla square die cut with the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, stamp the leaf image from Cheers to the Season in Cherry Cobbler ink.
Pop up on card front with dimensionals.
Add gold Simply Elegant Trim and gold sequins from the Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
Card base is Cherry Cobbler cut a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
I think this is a super fun heat embossing technique that adds a lot to the card. It also give you another way to use the decorative mask. I look forward to trying it with the snowflake mask in that collection.
