Snowman Gift Card Holder!

Guess what I used today to make this cute little gift card holder? If you guessed the "Envelope Liners Framelits Dies", you are correct! I love showing you how diverse an item can be and to use it for something other than what it was intended for:

Would you like to make one of these? Here's how:

Cut (1) medium sized envelope liner using Basic Black Cardstock. This will be the back of your gift card holder.

Cut a piece of designer paper 1" x 5" and glue to the very top of a Whisper White Cardstock piece and cut with the envelope liner about 1/4" above where the envelope liner gets smaller:

Flip the white layer over and add Sticky Strip to the sides and bottom as shown below:

Glue the front piece to the back piece.

Add (5) black Candy Dots for the mouth of the snowman. Using a Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride Ink, sponge the cheeks:

Cut (2) eyes using the 3/4" Circle Punch and Basic Black Cardstock
Cut (1) nose using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. Cut in half and discard one of the halves. Glue all 3 pieces in place for the face:

Add squiggly lines for the eyes using a White Signo Gel Pen and add lines to the nose using a Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker.

Decorate the hat by stamping one mosaic from the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set using Pumpkin Pie Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Cut out using the Mosaic Punch and glue in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add a Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the mosaic:

  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
  • Inks: Blushing Bride, Signo White Gel Pen, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Envelope Liner Framelits Dies, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Mosaic Punch, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Accessories: Candy Dots, Rhinestone Jewels
  • DSP: Winter Frost
  • Stamps: Mosaic Madness
