The Press On stamp set by Stampin' Up! is perfect to create gift card holders to say thank you at Christmas. Slip in your local coffee shop's, Starbuck's or Tim Horton's gift card to show your appreciation to the many people who deserve it! I am making these for my colleagues this year but I have also made gift card holders for my childrens' teachers, my hairdresser and even the UPS delivery person. Who else can you think of that deserves a cup of thanks for Christmas?
Make it yourself
You can make this card quickly and easily using the Press On stamp set from Stampin' Up!. The cute set of coffee cups line up perfectly as they are all one stamp. After stamping in black, colour the coffee cups in a traditional Christmas palette of Old Olive and Real Red. The alcohol markers blend beautifully. I recommend adding some light Crumb Cake ink to the background of the cups to prevent them from appearing to float in midair.
The front of this card was folded into three sections. The middle section contains the saying " A cup of thanks" and allows you to write a short message. I am fortunate to have people in my life that help my family and I on a regular basis. Christmas is the perfect time of year to let them know that they are appreciated.
A gift card can be inserted into the pocket created with the Heartwarming Hugs patterned paper. Be sure to use the fine tip glue pen to adhere the pocket to the card with a thin layer of glue. Do not use too thick of a line of adhesive or the gift card may have a tight fit.Product List
I enjoyed making this card and will enjoy giving small tokens of my appreciation to others just as much - maybe more!
