Heart of Christmas - Week 4

Hello everyone and welcome to Week 4 of the Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Team.

Giving a gift card as a present can often be a way of gifting to a family member or friend that is hard to buy for or that certain someone that has just about everything. And presenting said card doesn't have to be boring either, especially with this great idea!

This gorgeous gift card holder and box in one was altered to suit my requirements. The original design came from a YouTube video by former Stampin' Up! demonstrator Angelina Clarke of Intatwyne Designs.

I adore this beautiful poinsettia pattern with the white background. It is one of the designs from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper which can be found in the July-December Mini Catalogue. I wrapped a length of the crinkled seam binding ribbon around the gift card and tied with a bow for an extra touch of prettiness.

The sentiment is from the coordinating Leaves of Holly stamp set.
I stamped in Real Red ink and layered each rectangle onto a Scalloped Contours die cut. I fussy cut the leaves from the DSP and embellished with Festive Pearls in Cherry Cobbler and Gold.

There is room on the back to add your personal message.
I added the largest die cut square in Real Red from the Stylish Shapes Dies and a piece of Basic White with detail from a Stitched with Whimsy die.

You will find thumbnail images below of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create my project. The images are linked to my online store.
