It is the time of year for Gift Card holders.  They are a favorite of mine to make and share.  Today’s card showcases the Poinsettia paper.


Stampin' Up!, Christmas To Remember, Christmas Season, Boughs of Holly, Jackie Beers

And here is the inside view:




The Boughs of Holly Designer is where I found the beautiful Poinsettias.  The two pieces you see when the card is closed I wanted to be the same.  They could easily be two different coordinating papers.  And for the gift card pocket I opted for a different Poinsettia piece.  There are a variety of greens in the paper, but I opted to go with Mossy Meadow as the card base.  And I know you are shocked, but I did not add a layer between the DSP and the card base.  That is something I almost always do.  Since this card, including the gift card, is fairly thick, I did not want to add anymore layers to that.


I used two different stamp sets on this card.  The two sentiments are from the Christmas To Remember stamp set.  And the greenery are from the Christmas Season stamp set.  To get the focal layer greenery I simply stamped around the edges and left room in the center for the sentiment.  The colors used are ones from the DSP.  That made the choices rather easy!  For the inside layer I only added a sentiment.  That piece is rather small and did not want to take up any more of the writing room.


The card base is cut to 4 1/14 X 11 and scored at 2 1/2 and 5 1/2.  Fold and burnish the score lines.  The DSP pieces are two at 2 1/4 X 4.  These are the gift card pocket and the far right pieces.  The front left DSP is 2 3/4 X 4.   Adhere all of the DSP pieces and then use a circle punch or die to create the finger notch on the gift card pocket.  Then adhere it with Tear & Tape placed very close to the edge on each side.  It also helps to place your gift card inside when closing.  That insures that the fit is not too tight when you place it afterwards.

The front sentiment layer is a Mossy Meadow cut to 3 X 4 1/4 and a White cut to 2 3/4 X 4.  And the final is the inside White at 2 3/4 X 4.  I hope you will give this one a try!
