Merry Christmas To You!

Hey everyone! Time for another FUN challenge at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!!!


What a perfect challenge for this time of year... Gift Cards seem to be a winner every time if you're not quite sure what to buy someone for Christmas!!! So why not make a special holder for them to make the gift more personal?


I decided to try the Pop-Up Look Here die by Sizzix for Stampin Up! (Thanks Alicia for the loaner!) It did take me a couple of tries before I got it right, and I still managed to adhere the pop-up a little too tightly, but I think it turned out kinda fun! I also used SU's Candy Cane Christmas paper that I like so well.

Holiday Emily is featured on the front of my gift card holder. I think she's just the cutest thing with her big ole candy cane and bell. The die cuts on the front and on each side of the interior greeting are by K&Company. The greeting is by SRM.

Why don't you come on over and join us in the challenge this week? I'd love to see your favorite gift card holder technique. Plus, if you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp image, you might win a free stamp!

For lots of inspiration, check out what Sparkle and the gang have created:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your day sparkles!
