Christmas Gift Card Holder with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Christmas Gifts". We are also showcasing Simon Says Stamp exclusive products.

As a Christmas present, I made a gift card holder. This Christmas I have a color theme: black, white and gold. First I cut the black cardstock to size (8 x 23.5 cm) and scored it at 8 and 10 cm. The edges of the flap, I rounded with the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. All the edges got some Opal Magic Alchemy Paint Rose Gold. And I used Black Soot Distress Crayon on them.


Pattern papers and me aren't the best match, but I love an oldy: Meadow Lark, a very cool black and white paper pad. Perfect for covering this gift card holder with it. Those edges got some Black Soot Distress Crayon too. With Simon Says Stamp White Pigment Ink and the Holiday type stamp I made my own pattern paper.


On the flap I've used a Stitched Oval (Thanks Barbara!) On top of the oval  I cut some black cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Wishing die. To give the Stitched Oval a subtle background I've stamped with the Stripes stamp and Simon Says Stamp Ink Fog.

I love the design of your gift card holder, Sandra! The gold on black is such a wonderful combination and it's a great way to use up some left over patterned paper. Beautiful!
