Welcome to week 26 of Christmas inspiration from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. This week I'm sharing a luxe gift card holder. Gift cards have become a very common gift giving option and can be a little underwhelming when it comes to presentation, so dressing them up is essential to make your gift a bit special.
I have gone with a white and gold colour combo using the 'Year of Cheer' designer paper and Gold Foil to create a really luxurious look. The extra pop of colour comes from the Real Red bow on the front. This gift card holder is a bit like a Tardiis, but takes only one sheet of A4 card stock. I've used Whisper White for the base and added the Gold Foil embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder to the front. The label from the 'Labels to Love' stamp set has been embossed in gold and sits in the punched out space and keeps the holder closed.
When you open the cover, you see the panel of beautiful gold and white checked designer paper. I've added a gold Foil Snowflake as a background for the label.
When you fold down the front panel, you see the gift card in its slot and the writing panel for your message immediately below. I've continued the luxe feel with a Gold Foil mat to the writing panel and the swag from 'Merry Mistletoe' stamp set has been embossed in gold. The base has been trimmed with the Year of Cheer Specialty washi tape.
This gift card holder fits into a standard envelope and I've embossed the back flap with the 'Oh My Stars' embossing folder for some extra texture.
