The card I have for you today is a gift card holder.  It is a similar one to the card from Friday, and features the Beary Cute stamp set.

The card

This card is a gift card holder, like the one from Friday.  Here is a look at Friday in case you missed it.  And here is the open view of this card.




The papers used are the largest part of this card.  It began with Night of Navy card stock that is 11 X 4 1/4 and scored at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2.  Those are the important measurements.  After that you can decorate as you see fit.  I added the lovely Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Those packages on the front are a tad busy, but makes me think of anticipation of what is inside!!  I am a kid at heart with gifts!!

The inside green paper is also from the same Beary Christmas DSP.  As is the little bear on the inside by the sentiment.  It is fussy cut from a scrap piece.  To add some contrast to the front, and match the inside, I used Old Olive for the tag.


All of the stamped images are from the Beary Cute stamp set.  The bear is not the one that matches the Punch, which is part of the Beary Cute Bundle.  So I fussy cut him as well.  It is an easy cut.  And I do not mind fussy cutting.  The sentiment is included in the set also.  It was intended as a straight line, like it stamps.  But it just would not work that way.  So I improvised and cut it in half.


This perfectly sized tag is the new Sparkling Snowflake Tag Topper punch.  I love the little snowflake at the top.  But this could be used as other than a Winter tag I think.  It is a bit difficult to see, but I ran the red ribbon through the lower opening of the snowflake and down the front of the tag.  Then it comes up the back and meets again at the top.  The bow is separate and added with a glue dot.  I did not realize that the bear and sentiment would almost totally cover the ribbon.  It does look really cute wrapped around that way.

To finish the tag and the card, I added a touch of bling.  This is my normal, but I was very restrained today.  The paper is so busy that I knew bling would get lost on the DSP.  So I ended with a single Adhesive Glitter Sequin in matching blue for the bear’s scarf.  The size and glitter adds just the right amount of bling!
