Our current challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central is to create a Gift Card Holder. Hmm…….I’ve never created one of those before!! So, I did what any crafter in need would do! I went in search of some ideas via YouTube. I found THIS tutorial from ChickNScratch that was both easy and cute! Also, in my search, I found THIS tutorial that I just HAD to make to go with my gift card holder. Both extremely easy!! Here are some photos of the items I made:
Isn’t Sleeping Baby Tilda just to-die-for cute!!!
A photo of the front of the brag book and the opened gift card holder. The gift card slides into that middle section. It was soooo easy to make!!
Sorry for the dark photo! My camera didn’t want to flash on this one! ha!
This is the back of the gift card holder and brag book. I guess it really doesn’t matter which way you open the gift card holder. I made it so that whichever way you open it, the papers are the correct orientation and both outside sections have a piece of patterned paper pop-dotted onto it.
- Image – Sleeping Baby Tilda
- Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Seven
- Copics – E000, E0000, E21, Y11, Y00, Y000, C00
- Clear A2 Envelopes
Doesn’t that image just make you melt?? Babies are so cuddly and cute! *sigh*
I also cut my image out and layered her on the Labels Seven set to make it look like she’s sleeping on the book. After all, this is a nursery rhyme theme brag book. :o)
The patterned paper I used on the inside cover of the brag book and the embellishments and papers on the gift card holder are from the store “Hey Diddle, Diddle”. Cute, glittered and glazed cardstock!!
If you would like to see the tutorial on how to make the brag book, please visit my blog. I have written directions there.
I hope you’ll join us in our challenge to create a gift card holder! There is a prize involved for the winner!!!! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by today to see my latest Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Design Team post! The current theme is “Halloween”.
I have a bunch of Halloween House Mouse stamps that I’ve never used and a member of my group, The Frugal Scrapper, made a video on how to make this “Never Ending Card”…so now is the time to try out a new card fold and use these un-inked stamps!!! And even with all of the stamps I used on this project, I still have a few more that I have yet to use. ;o)
Because there are a lot of products used in this project, I have decided to break down the photos by section to tell you what supplies I’ve used.
Here is a shot of the front of my card. Overall finished measurement is 8x8…it’s BIG!!
The two images above are close-ups of the stamps on the front of my card. For these two, I used:
- Image - Mice Carrot
- Sentiment - Stampabilities
- i-rock tool
- i-rock jeweltone gems
- Spellbinders - Labels 3
- Spellbinders – Beaded Ovals
- Copics - G05, G07, G12, C3, C5, C7, C9, R24, RV00, YR00, YR04, YR07, E13, E17, E00, E000
- Tim Hotlz Black Soot Distress Ink
- Flowers – Recollections from Michaels. The black one was white. I colored it with 100 Copic with my Airbrush
This is the next layer of my card.
- Image - Incognito (Ghost Mouse)
- Sentiment - Stampabilities
- Copics - C2, C1, E17, E13
- Spellbinders – Labels 4
- i-rock tool
- i-rock jeweltone gems
- Stampabilities – Small Labels
This is section three of my card.
- Image – Monica Flutter-by
- Mouse Prints – also by Stampabilities
- Spellbinders – Deckled Edge Classic Ovals
- Copics - YR04, YR07, YR00, G20, C7, C5, BV00, RV00, C3
- Spider Web – Martha Stewart Spider Web Punch
- Glimmer Mist – sprayed on the spider web
- Footprints – Stampabilities
I’m not sure why I didn’t ink the edges of the piece with footprints. I didn’t notice it until right this moment as I sit here typing up the details of my post. ha!
This is the last section of my card.
- Image - Little Pumpkin
- Copics - YR04, YR07, YR00, E000, E00, RV00, E29, E25, E21, C3, E13, E17
- Spellbinders – Beaded Ovals
- Sentiment – Stampabilities
- Spellbinders – Deckled Rectangles
- Footprints – Stampabilities (I just stamped them randomly all over.
On the stamped images and sentiments in this card, I used the dies to cut, emboss, add the black ink to the “beaded” sections with a little finger dauber and Tim Holtz Black Soot ink. I removed the die and added more ink around the edges with the same Black Soot ink and a bristle brush.
This card isn’t hard, but it does take patience to get all the folds correct. Once you get that figured out, the rest kind of falls into place!
