A Great Way to Present a Gift Card

Happy Saturday! I truly hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. I did, now I am contemplating putting up my  Christmas tree today...what do you think? Too early? Nah, I think I just might do it!
Anyway, today I wanted to share with you a cute way to present a gift card. I don't know about you, but I really hate giving gift cards. I know they are practical because the recipient gets to pick out what they want and need, but at the same time, it feels like it is so impersonal, but sometimes it's the only way to go and for those times, I like to dress them up to present them. So here is just one cute way to do just that.

To create this gift card holder, stamp the Merry Christmas from the Hang Your Stocking Bundle in Real Red onto the Kraft bag and run through the Dynamic Cable Knit embossing folder. Then cut a piece of Whisper White 4 3/8" x 6 5/8" and to stamp the B.Y.O.P., I placed the gift card where I wanted it in order to properly place my stamped image and using Real Red ink, I stamped the B.Y.O.P. and then "buy your own present" at the bottom. I adhered that to a panel of Real Red cardstock cut 4 1/2" x 6 3/4" using Snail adhesive. (I used a temporary adhesive to hold the gift card in place). Then, to finish the bag, I stamped the stocking image onto scrap whisper white and cut it out using the coordinating die and the Big Shot. I also cut the "hoop" and adhered that to the stocking using a glue dot and placed the stocking onto the bag using Stampin' Dimensionals and wrapped a piece of the Real Red and White bakers twine (I ran it through the "hoop" of the stocking) and tied it into a bow. And that finished off my gift card holder.

So, what do you think? I love to hear what you think, so please leave your comments below and thank you for stopping by and having a look.
Happy Stamping,
