The Beary Christmas DSP is such beautiful paper that it is the star of today’s card.  I have made one of my favorite things, a gift card holder to share with you.


Stampin' Up!, Beary Christmas, Beary Cute, Deckled Rectangles, Jackie Beers



The star of this card is for sure the paper.  I used the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper.  The softer colors and all of the animal print in this larger piece make me feel all warm and cozy.  Although the prints are in snow and that is not warm and cozy.  But making Christmas cards definitely is.  And this one is a gift card holder.

To create this card I used two different pieces from the Beary Christmas DSP pack.  This snow scene was cut to continue to the inside.  Here is an open view.



The gift shares both the left and right side of the open view.  Just a bit of fun there.  And the little Christmas tree is cut from the same piece that the focal point on the front is from.  I fussy cut the tree but it was really quick.


The two Deckled Rectangles Dies used on the front of the card are a different take on a “spotlight”.  At least that is what I am calling it.  I loved the little scene with the two bears and wanted a way to showcase them and their gifts.  The two sizes of the Dies worked perfectly and fit on the front well.  It is hard to believe that there is not stamping on the front of my card again today!

Stamp set

The only stamping on the entire card is the inside sentiment.  It is from the Beary Cute stamp set.  I love the cursive and simple Merry Christmas.  My first plan had been for it to be on the front of the card.  So I embossed it in White with that in mind.  After building the front panel I realized that there was not a good spot to place a sentiment.  So I fussy cut it a little bit and then added it to the inside.  The Night of Navy with White embossing really pops as the sentiment and plays with the Night of Navy card base.


  • card base of Night of Navy is 11 X 4 1/4 and scored at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2.
  • The front layers are Very Vanilla cut to 3 3/4 X 4 and DSP cut to 3 5/8 X 3 7/8
  • The gift card slot is covered with Very Vanilla at 1 1/4 X 4 and DSP at 1 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • The inside has a Very Vanilla that is 5 1/4 X 4
  • The right side DSP is evenly spaced on the end of large Very Vanilla and is 1 1/8 X 3 7/8.
