Letters to Santa Gift Card Holder

Good Friday Morning all and it is almost the weekend.  YEA!!!!  Hope you have had a great week.

This is another gift card I have done for a friend who wanted me to make her 7.  I did 3 of these and 4 of the one I posted earlier.  This was for a man, so I thought it fit the manly figure better than the gift card holder purses.  This designer paper had to grow on me, but once it did, I am just using it up and have some set aside for scrapbooking.  Must get that done quickly this year.

Here is a look at the inside of the card!

How cute is this with this paper!  And, so easy to put together.  That is the best way to do these holders.  I left the measurements at home, but I think they are as follows:  UPDATED ON 12/3!

Cut card stock to 4 1/4 X 8. 
Score at 2 3/4 and 6
Cut another card stock at 2 1/2 X 4 1/4 and using a heavy adhesive only on the sides and bottom adhere to the middle of the card with the bottom right above the score line.  As you can see in photo above gift card will fit right into this slot.
You will decorate as you want with cutting the Designer paper 1/4" less than the width of the are you need it.

If I get home and see the score lines are different, I will edit and put in correct score lines.

All items used are Stampin' Up!
Stamp Sets: Perfect Punches, Four the Season
Card Stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist
Designer Series Paper: Letters to Santa
Classic Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Scallop edge punch, scallop round punch, Markers for the front stamp

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!

Good Morning, Jonia!! This Friday is going to be crazy for me but I'm so glad I took a minute to come here. Your gift card holder is sweet and I love that you shared the dimensions, thank you!! It's similar to one that Abby does and it's just ideal for the gift cards! Have a great weekend!
