Last of the Christmas Gifts

I always have trouble buying gifts for my Nephews and Nieces. One of my nieces is only 4 so hers is usually easy (clothes, dolls or anything doll related) but all the the other kids are over 16 and for some reason they are not as easy to buy for.

I decided to take the easy way out this year and you know the saying "cash is king", but I didn't want to just put it in an envelope all by itself. Instead, I decided to make some cash/gift cards holders.

These were easy to make with the help of my Magnetic plate and the Circles Card Thinlets Die. 

I used a piece of 12"x12" Cherry Cobbler card stock that I cut at 13.8 cm so that I could slot it through the Thinlet Die, like the picture below. I then ran it through my Big Shot.

Once cut, I then folded the card at the crease lines created by the Die. I then scored at 4.8 cm from the right hand side edge. Like the photo below.

The piece on the right hand-side end will be folded over and glued top and bottom to make the pocket. As per the photo below.

I then decorated the card using Season of Style Designer Series Paper and the Wishing You stamp set.

This is the card all folded up. It fits quite happily into a standard size envelope (C6).

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Wishing You
Card Stock : Cherry Cobbler
Designer Series Paper : Season of Style
Ink : Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Baked Brown Sugar Stampin' Write Markers
Accessories : 2-1/2" Circle and 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, Basic Rhinestones. Dimensionals

Although I made these for Christmas, they can just easily be adapted for other times of the year and other celebrations.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas. I'm be posting a few times between now and New Year but if you don't get a chance to check them out have a Happy New Year too.
