Christmas Gift Card Holder


The Santa included in the Vintage Santa stamp set from Red Rubber Designs is the perfect fit for the Fleur De Lis Rectangle die from Spellbinders. I love the added interest it adds to this card.

The background was stamped with the script stamp also found in the Vintage Santa stamp set.  I embellished with blue metallic ribbon and glittered snowflakes with bling centers

The base of the card was constructed out of a 12" X 5" piece of cardstock scored at 4" and 8" with  part of the right hand panel cut off to form a pocket for the gift card.
The sentiment is from the Holiday Wishes stamp set from RRD.

This card is one of 6 projects presented as inspiration by the Red Rubber Designs Design Team for the Third Thursday Just Because Challenge. You can find  information for the challenge on the RRD blog.  Join us for a fun challenge this month and the chance to win a prize from RRD.

Nice card and gift holder. I like the die cut on the front. It really dresses up the Santa.

A gorgeous frame for the vintage Santa. Love the inside, too.
(One question: Where's the ribbon:)
