Gift Card Holders Galore!

What gifts are you thinking of giving this Christmas?  If you're like most parents/grandparents, you know that the younger generation is looking for gift cards. And just think ... it's so cheap and easy for shipping, definitely a factor to keep in mind this pandemic year!

So, I've come up with several different gift card holders - patterns and holders that I've accumulated over the years.  Wouldn't you like to have several different options for presentation this year?! Well, sign up for this class now!

I'll be teaching this class on Zoom on Tuesday night, December 8th, 2020. Can't make it?!  No problem .. I'll have a PDF tutorial written up for you with super-easy directions for you to follow.  If it requires more explanation, I'll even make a video showing you how to cut and score the cardstock.  If you buy the kit (available until the end of the next week, but definitely done in time for you for Tuesday night's class if you sign up by Monday evening).  I'm featuring the Wrapped in Christmas and Tag Buffet stamp set for most of my sentiments.  I'll be using different stamp sets to decorate the outside -- you'll be able to match them because the designer papers are even to match.  Don't worry if you don't have exactly what I have - these gift card holders are SO easy to decorate!

Option 1: $23 Sign up HERE
Get the card kit with all paper cut and scored.  (PDF included and will be sent out within 24-48 hours of the class, but hopefully BY the time of class!)

Option 2: $13 Sign up HERE
Sign up for the Zoom class and cut/score your own paper. (Cutting document will be sent out by Monday afternoon.) You'll get the PDF with a link for videos if needed. If you miss the zoom, you'll still have all the instructions you need! 

Make sure you sign up by Monday night (12/8/20 at 12 p.m.) if you want the kit in time for the class!  The kits are available for porch pickup any time after 2 p.m. on Tuesday. If you would like a kit but require shipping, text or email me and we'll arrange that too!

Curvy Christmas Wishes!

Last week for my Handmade Holidays newsletter, I prepared several cards using the Curvy Christmas stamp set and the Curvy dies.  This stamp set is part of a bundle that Stampin' Up! has for sale during November and December (you must order this Quite Curvy VARIETY bundle by December 10th in order to guarantee delivery before Christmas). 

Here is one of my favorite cards that I prepared:

I used the Heartwarming Hugs designer paper for my DSP layer under the two cut curvy layers.  I've said it before -- the Poinsettia Petals is probably my favorite bundle from the Holiday Mini catalog.  I diecut a pine branch from the Beautiful Boughs dies. Of course, the finishing touch is the lovely beaded pearl embellishment in the center of my red velvet flower.  

How does one see the tutorial for this card?  Well, my newsletter subscribers are receiving weekly Handmade Holidays tutorial emails, and this card was one of my featured cards.  Although it was already sent, if you subscribe to my newsletter AND leave me a comment under the card, I can forward this issue to you.  (*I featured 3 other cards with different stamp sets and designer paperst too which you will see in the newsletter.)
