You all know how much I love Gift Card Holders.  As much as I love them, I am sad that I will be using more for this Christmas gift giving.  That said, I have been working on creating a few different ones to use.  Today’s is a fun one using Snowflake Splendor.


I am not sure if this is funny or sad!   Poor Frosty!!   My idea is to pair this with a treat bag with some instant cocoa and a gift card to a coffee shop.  Coffee shops generally have hot cocoa as well.

The Designer Series Paper on the left side is from the Snowflake Splendor DSP.  I am so in love with the colors of that pack.  I was thrilled to find that Frosty fit perfectly inside the Stitched So Sweetly Die.  The matching Die makes that layer a great size for overlapping the front and inside sections.

Here is a view of the inside.

The frosty image and the “Sadly….” are from the Don’t Stop Believin’ stamp set.  I love every stamp in that set!  The inside sentiment and the mug are from the Warm Hugs stamp set.  There are dies for the circle image, but I chose to simply stamp them on that inside layer.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have all of the measurements listed next and all of the products I used are at the bottom of the post.


  • The base card is Pacific Point card stock cut to 4 1/4 X  10 1/2, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.
  • I normally use the 1′ circle punch for the thumb hole, but since it is retired, I tried the 2″ and it works even better.  TIP:  Center and Hold the DSP against the edge of the card holder when you punch the thumb hole. Then when you attach it, the cut out matches perfectly.
  • All inside pieces and the front DSP are 4 X 2 1/2
  • The gift card DSP is 4 X 2
