My Creative Time Design Team Day

Welcome to the studio for another My Creative Time project! Today's assignment was to use the Gift Card Sentiments set with the colors of  teal, red and chocolate chip. How lucky for me I actually had paper in this color combo!!! Woot!

and the Gift Card Holder die.
I also used the Fancy Frame Stamp and Die set for my project today.

Isn't it super cute! I love the gift card holder - it can be gussied up as much as you wish, or simply cut from pretty paper and left as is. Either way makes an equally lovely presentation.

TEAL: Close up of the frame stamp with the sentiment - I added cute little holly leaves and used tiny hearts for the berries with glossy accents.

CHOCOLATE CHIP: And my cute little embellies ... I'm all about the details you know! ;) I used a sweet little gingerbread man and mini hearts with yummy maraschino twine.

RED: Inside I've added a gift card that matches the paper {I did say I'm all about the details! LOL}. I keep a stack of {empty} gift cards in all different colors and themes to use for props in my scrapbook projects. Then when I do need a gift, I just add the bucks to it and I'm all set to send it off! :)

Here are a couple more ideas for using this fun die.

I hope these will inspire you to create your own fun card holders with this adorable new die! How quick and easy it will be to get all your Christmas shopping done by giving gift cards in pretty, handmade card holders. ;) Thanks for coming by the studio today!
