A Holiday Hello from Elfie

A Holiday Hello from Elfie

Here’s a cute Holiday Hello from Elfie card using a unique card design – I’m not sure of the name but I really like the results!  No extra cardstock needed, just cut off 2-3/4″ turn it 90 degrees and attach!  Elfie is so cute – I just love how he makes this card shine!  All that’s needed is a swipe from the Wink of Stella pen on the hat brim and the bottom of the coat.

 

These are the products used for this card:

Now for the sizes and instructions:

  1. Cut Coastal Cabana Cardstock at 4-1/2″ x 11” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.  Cut off 2-3/4″ from the front of the card base – turn sideways – attach over the DSP – make sure Snail Adhesive is applied to the left side ONLY.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside layer.  Stamp with a verse, if desired.  Attach with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 4″.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the Elfie greetings.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the Coastal Cabana layer.
  4. Cut Let It Snow Specialty DSP at 2-1/2″ x 4″.  Attach to the front layer with Snail Adhesive.
  5. Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp Elfie on Whisper White Cardstock.  Use the 2″ Circle Punch to cut out Elfie.  Punch out a background layer of Shaded Spruce with the Starburst Punch.
  6. Colour Elfie with Stampin’ Blends.  Use Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the hat brim and coat trim.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the Shaded Spruce Starburst Circle.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach the Elfie to the card front.

Here’s a really cute gift card holder – just in time for Christmas giving!  With all the Christmas shows on TV, you’ll have plenty of time to colour the Designer Series Paper for a card or two.  Any of the DSP could be used but I’ve wanted to try this technique for a while and today was the day.  I love how it turned out so I may have to make a few more!

These are the products used:

Now I’ll tell you how I made this:

  1. Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 11” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Real Red Cardstock at 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Use Tuxedo Memento Black Ink to stamp greeting from the Itty Bitty Stamp set on Real Red Cardstock. Punch greeting out with the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the Real Red layer with a hole punched out of it to the front of the card base.
  3. Cut Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper at 3″ x 8″. Use Real Red Stampin’ Blends to colour the flowers resulting in them looking like poinsettia flowers! Shade colouring if desired. Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the card base. Fold at the bottom edge of the card.
  4. Use the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch to create a thumb hold at the bottom of the DSP. This will allow for easier insertion and removal of the gift card.
  5. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the outside edges to the back of the front side of the card base. Insert a gift card.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the greeting stamped on the Real Red Cardstock to a 1-1/2″ circle that was punched out of Basic Black Cardstock. Use Mini Glue Dots to attach a length of Real Red Curly Ribbon to the back of the greeting circles. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card front.
  7. Use Tuxedo Memento Black Ink to stamp greeting from the So Many Stars Stamp set on Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use Snail Adhesive to attach inside the card base.

Now let’s see how a gift card fits in the holder!

That’s not a “real” gift card in the picture – I have a habit of saving all hotel key cards to use for card making techniques like the “Shaving Cream Technique” and it looks like this card was an ID card from our Mediterranean Cruise in 2015!

This is just one sample of a gift card holder – you can see a Candy Cane Christmas one here and an easy gift card holder here.
