Scentsational Season Top Note Gift Card Holder

Top Note Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Scentsational Season Top Note Gift Card Holder

Once again this Top Note Gift Card Holder was inspired by a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator blog.  A perk I love about being a SU demo.  This card looks involved but it is actually quite easy to make.  View the video tutorial below and I’ll walk you through the quick steps to creating this ‘scentsational’ card.

Scentsational Season Top Note Gift Card Holder with card

Cut your cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″ and score at 4-1/2, 5-1/2 & 6-1/2, then follow the directions in the video to run your scored cardstock through the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine with the Top Note Bigz Die and create the pop up gift card holder shown above.

 To decorate the front of the card, I die-cut a piece of the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper to fit on the front and cover the left edge of the gift card holder.  I punched a large circle of Gumball Green cardstock and layered the fun, steaming mug from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set with the matching Holiday Framelit dies.

The Merry Christmas sentiment from Wacky Wishes Hostess stamp set was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and it punched out perfectly with the Extra-Wide Oval punch.

A little dazzling details glitter and some rhinestones add extra glitz to the Soft Suede mug. And another large circle in Whisper White in the interior gives you a place to write a personal message.

Mixed Medley Elf Shoes Card

Another Top Note Elf Shoes Card

Mixed Medley Elf Shoes Card

This is the first Top Note elf shoes Christmas card I made, but I decided I wanted the shoes beefier and the card a little brighter so I made the elf shoe Christmas card I showed earlier this week.  This card is made the same way as the one in the video tutorial.  On this card I used a Crumb Cake cardstock base and the Mixed Medley hostess stamp set.

Sweet Essentials Folded Christmas Tree Card

Folded Christmas Tree Card

Sweet Essentials Folded Christmas Tree Card

I made this folded Christmas tree card with non-Christmas paper in non-traditional colors.  🙂  It’s a very simple card.  The folded tree is made the same way as the folded Christmas tree gift card I showed you last month.  This tree was made with a larger, scallop circle and I added a bit to make it symmetrical.

Here’s a video on folding the Christmas tree and creating the folded scallop tree.  Click here or here http://youtu.be/OG-cZTbYXC4 to view it.

I started with the Scallop Circle Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine to create the large circle out of Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper.   Stampin’ Up!’s double-sided paper is perfect for this folded tree.  A bit of glitter was added to the scallops with 2-way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Grab some paper and just follow the directions on the video to make your trees!

(The links to the picture and description of the products I used on this card are at the bottom of this post.)

Sweet Essentials Folded Christmas Tree Card detail

The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and the sentiment from the Sweet Essentials stamp set was stamped in matching Island Indigo ink.  I tied a knot of satin ribbon around the middle, added the tree with dimensionals behind it, adhered the Silver Glimmer star and a bit of matching Summer Starfruit cardstock for the tree base.

Embellished Events Elf Shoes Card

A Top Note Elf Shoes Christmas Card

Embellished Events Elf Shoes Card Top Note elf shoes Christmas card – love it!!!  Once again I was inspired by a post on an upline business blog.  And I created a video tutorial to show you how to create your own elf shoes Christmas card.  Or create these whimsical shoes and put them upside down on sticks to place in a center piece or candy jar.

The complete supply list is at the end of this post with links to the product descriptions and pictures.  I started with Gumball Green cardstock that I die-cut with the Top Note  Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine.  The die is then cut in half from point to point and then each half is cut in half again at the point.

Embellished Events Elf Shoes Card detail

I used the 1-3/8″ and 1″ circle punches to create the shoe.  And the 1-1/4″ scallop and 1″ circle punches to create the cuff.  The balls on the toes are 3/4″ circles and the striped stocking legs measure 3/4″ x 3-1/2″.    Just follow along with the video to learn how to use these tools to create this card.
