Teen Boy Christmas Gift Card Holder


I was asked to make a gift card holder for a teenage boy, so I pulled out all sorts of crafty goodies and got to work!  Instead of using traditional Christmas paper, I decided to use Papertrey Ink's Grunge Me stamps, along with the bicycle wheel from PTI's Pedal Pushers, with Christmas colored inks on a kraft background before cutting it with the My Creative Time Scallop Stitched Envelope Die.  On the front of my envelope I made a little piece of note paper by using patterned paper from Echo Park's This & That Christmas and MCT's Fun Stitched Edges Dies.  I added a cute naughty/nice stamp from  MCT's A Day in December (the giver can choose which box to check), stamped on the new Square Stitched Goody Dies.  The arrow is from the MCT Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies.  Lastly, I added three stars.  The two larger are from the new 3 Star Stitched Dies, and the smallest is a button from Stitched Button Dies.  I love how well they work together!


A gift card can go inside the envelope, along with this little card, which I made with the MCT Stitched Journal Die.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tag Holidays, and the little Santa hat is from A Day in December.

I like the stamping on the envelope and the clever way you stacked the stars...they look great. The note paper edge die is a super idea...so fun with the Naughty Nice. Fabulous job!
