The base for our gift card holder is a Basic White envelope--quick, simple, easy--just seal, slit off the end and die cut the thumb hole.

All that's left is the decorating!

We added a layer of red topped with the argyle design from the Shining Christmas designer series paper (Online Exclusive paper).

On the white stitched circle we added Santa's hat (all dies from the Sending Cheer). We used small Olive glitter sequins to cover the hanger hole created by the die and to decorate the remainder of the hat.

The verse is stamped in Old Olive and surrounded by Dazzling snowflake die cuts (Wishes All Around).

This is probably the simplest gift card holder base you'll ever tackle ---and one of the cutest!

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stop by next week to see what set we're playing with then!

5. Stamp verse in Old Olive ink in lower right quarter.

6. Die cut the hat base from Real Red and the cuff & pompom from white; color with Wink of Stella. Adhere to hat. Use small Olive glitter sequin to hide the die cut hole in the hat- add 3 more to complete the polkadot pattern. Adhere completed hat to circle with dimensionals.
