Gift Card Perfection - #248

This is one of the projects I had meant to include in my Advent Series, but life got the better of me, just for a change, and it got missed. So here it is, the perfect (she says modestly) Gift Card holder. I accept it is not totally original in its design, but I hope I have given it my own little twist.

Gift Card Holder Merry Little Christmas and Christmas Around the World

What doesn't show up in the picture particularly well is that the Basic Black card stock has Clear Wink of Stella spritzed over it to give it a wonderful shimmer, which works perfectly with the Champagne Foil. The Designer Series Paper is Merry Little Christmas, which is a perfect pack for carrying over into non-Christmas projects too. The original version I made uses the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper, which is fast becoming my favourite, I am on my third, or is it fourth, pack already.

The basic design works with any 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper, and has the added bonus of getting two from one sheet. I have listed the products I used for each project separately so they are easy to follow. This is the list for the Christmas Around the World:

And this is the list for the Merry Little Christmas version:
