Candy Canes Card Samples

When I got my first glimpse of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, this Candy Canes background stamp made the top of the list. Imagine my surprise, when I came home from the incentive trip with this as a gift.

So, I started to play and just let my imagination roll with it. Be sure to read the entire post to see other card samples and a video that shows the samples and explains them in more detail. In the video, I reveal a Stamparatus tip to help you with background stamps.

Peaceful Place Gift Card Holder

Peaceful Place Gift Card Holder

How many days until Christmas? I’m not counting yet! But I do know I give a lot of gift cards. That’s where gift card holders come in handy.

Today’s project features a gift card holder that doubles as a greeting card. It fits in one of Stampin’ Up!’s regular envelopes. And it is so easy to make.

Here are the measurements beginning from the top down for the Peaceful Place Gift Card Holder:

  • Basic White: 1/2 inch x 3 (sentiment)
  • Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper: 4 1/4 x 2 3/4
  • Silver Foil 12 x 12 Specialty Paper: 4 1/2 x 3
  • White Base: 7 1/2 x 4 3/4, scored at 1 inch and 4 1/4 inch
  • Black Back: 5 1/4 x 3 3/4
  • DSP for inside piece: 1 x 4 3/4

The holder also uses the Evergreen Border Punch found in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog and the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set offered in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog,

I made a few other samples that fit well for other occasions.
