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.

I recently returned from Stampin’ Up!’s incentive trip to Maui! What a treat! The weather was beautiful, and the company spoiled the earners and their guests. I truly thank all of my friends, customers, team, and supportive husband for this awesome opportunity.

The event focuses mainly on relaxing, recharging, and connecting with other demonstrators. We didn’t have any planned stamping events, but we did exchange swap cards. To participate, I made 26 of one card. (See my card here.)

Then, we receive 25 different cards back! It’s so fun to see the variety of ideas presented by other demonstrators. (Review the video of the cards I received here. Hint: the card showcase takes place near the end of the video.)

I really liked a card I received from Selene Kempton; it doubles as a gift card holder. I changed up the Designer Series Paper and the sentiment to make it my own.

My version uses the following products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog:

  • Expressions in Ink 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper
  • Sentiment from Peaceful Moments
  • Fine Art Gold Ribbon
  • Gold Foil Paper

Dimensions to cut the card stock, working from the top down:

  • 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 — your choice of Designer Series Paper
  • 4 1/2 x 3 — colored coordinating card stock
  • 7 1/2 x 4 3/4, scored at 1 inch and 4 1/4 inches — white “base”
  • 5 1/4 x 3 3/4 — colored coordinating card stock mat
  • 1 x 4 3/4 — Designer Series Paper for the inside trim piece

Tree Angle Gift Card Holder

Today’s post shares a fun Tree Angle gift card holder. Be sure to watch the video for detailed instructions and techniques.

Tree Angle Gift Card Holder

As the holidays approach, we’re starting to shop for gifts for loved ones and friends. Gift cards rate as popular go-to items each year. I’m sharing a fun and festive way to present and send those gift cards. This card fits in one of Stampin’ Up!’s regular-size envelopes.

Today’s card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Tree Angle stamp set, Stitched Triangles, and Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. I also added the gorgeous Red & Green Foil sheets.

Basically, this Tree Angle Gift Card Holder card starts as a full-size card. Using the Stampin’ Trimmer, I cut a piece out of the front. It leaves a gate flap on the bottom.

Here’s a photo of the inside of the card.

You can see that the gift card slides into the front flap. The right side gives you space to write a message.

Here are the measurements for the different pieces of designer series paper used here. You can change up the design using the many different varieties of patterned paper offered by Stampin’ Up!

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.

This video below shows you how to create a quick and easy gift card holder!

It’s that time of year again! We’re gearing up for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and more. And even though we’re experiencing a time where we may not be able to celebrate together, it’s a great opportunity to send someone your loving thoughts. We can still order gift cards online, and we can still send items via the US Postal Service. In fact, it’s a great time for happy mail of any kind.

The Project: Quick and Easy Gift Card Holder

I found this easy gift card holder while perusing Pinterest. In fact, I’m sure I made some a few years ago. But I’ve resurrected them and updated them with some new designs and Stampin’ Up! products.

The base is just an envelope. You heard me! Just an envelope measuring 5 3/4 inches by 4 3/8 inches. Stampin’ Up! sells both Whisper White and Very Vanilla. You receive 40 envelopes for $7.50. These are high-quality envelopes that fit standard cards.

See the video below for how to transform this card-making staple into a gift card holder.

I’ve used a variety of different products on the gift cards. Here’s a quick recap working left to right (All Stampin’ Up! A shopping list is included after the video.):

  • Graduation: Witty-cisms stamp set; Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, Black Card Stock, Stitched Shapes, Layering Circles, Metallic Silver-edge Ribbon, Dark Basic Black Blend.
  • Mother’s Day: Best Dressed Bundle, 6 x 6 Dressed to Impressed Designer Series Paper, 1/8 inch Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon, Stitched Shapes, Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron Card Stock.
  • Wedding: Itty Bitty Greetings, Gold Embossing, Gold Foil, Stitched Be Mine Framelits, Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder, Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
  • Father’s Day: Country Club Designer Series Paper, Country Club Bundle, Country Club Baker’s Twine, Night of Navy Ink and Card Stock.
