Heart of Christmas week 22 - Gift Card Holders


Hello and welcome to the final week of the Heart of Christmas Blog Hops. I have had a wonderful time sharing my projects with you and also receiving inspiration from my fellow team members.

This week I have a gift card holder to share with you. It's come to a time when most of my teenage nieces and nephews prefer to select their own Christmas gifts with a gift card than something I would choose ;). So instead of just handing over a plastic card I like to make it a bit more special with a hand made gift card holder.

I started with a standard card base of half an A4 sheet folded in half. I scored the front of the card 3.5cm in from the right hand side. Before folding and adhering this to the inside of the card I punched a semi circle from the centre to make the gift card more accessible.

I decorated the front of the card using the Leaves of Holly bundle from the July to Dec mini catalogue.

Now it's time to see what the very talented Cathy Proctor has to share with us. 

If you have any problems with the links in our hop please head over to Sharon Davern's blog as she is the wonderful host of our Heart of Christmas blog hops and will have a complete list of tonight's participants.

Thank you for visiting,
Happy stamping,


  1. What a wonderful idea to make a gift card more personal, Rachel. This is such a great design -I might have to CASe this for my teenage nephews and nieces too!

  2. What a lovely way to make a gift card more special. I love the way that incorporating the holder into the card base has made a feature of the inside of the card. It's gorgeous!

  3. This is a very easy design to create the gift card holder, Rachel. I love the rich colours and I'm sure your teenage nephews and nieces will adore these!

  4. Such a lovely card Rachel. Beautiful traditional Christmas colours. Caroline.
