Do You Give Gift Cards?

I have to be honest, I don't.  At least, not often.  I do on occasion, but I REALLY like buying stuff for people.  LOL!  I think it's FUN!  But...sometimes you want to tack on a little something extra or you know that a gift card is really the BEST choice for that certain someone, so I also like to have some cute ways to present gift cards ready during the holidays.

The Gourmet Rubber Stamps Sketch Challenge this month was a PERFECT fit for a fun gift card holder!  Here is the sketch that the Design Team has worked from this week:

I decided to do more of a scoop neck and less of a v-neck on my card. HAHAHAHA! But, what I really loved was the pocket concept in the sketch, so I ran with that!

Season's Greetings Gift Card Holder

I used the Winter Wishes Collection by Echo Park and combined it with the super cute Season's Greetings set from Gourmet Rubber Stamps! On the insert, I used one of the BRAND NEW Cookie Cutter Stencils available at Gourmet to create the background. LOVE THAT!

The insert slips right inside the card making it easy to get the gift card out! YAY! Be sure to head on over to the Gourmet Rubber Stamps blog to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created and to show us YOUR take on the sketch! We would LOVE to see it!

I hope you have a super happy Monday! I'm feeling a little bit like maybe I should get the last of the Christmas online ordering done...seeing as it is only two weeks away now. LOL! Happy Day, folks!

Jingle Out!

Very, very pretty!
I need to do something fancier like this for when I give gift cards.
I usually just stick them in a card!

Love that paper combination. I don't usually give gift cards, I'm with you, I'd rather pick out a gift. Barb
