Season’s Greetings Truck Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I am back with my first project of the month for Momenta! It is hard to believe that in less that 20 days Christmas will be here…YIKES! I am in full crazy mode trying to get everyone bought for, put the tree up and decorate. If you are like me you need quick craft projects that can be whipped out in a hurry. Well, here is a quick gift card holder project that takes 30 minutes or less to complete. 
I found this Happy Holiday Truck Cut and Emboss Diecuts at my locate Tuesday Morning. I cut two truck diecuts from a sheet of red cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad using the Freestyle Diecutting and Embossing Machine. The wheels I used a scrap of black cardstock (placed a scrap of an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of the black scrap of cardstock) from the same paper pad and placed over the wheels of the die and cut out. I did a little fussy cutting around the wheels, removed the backing from the adhesive sheet and place each black wheel on top of the wheels of the truck.
I lightly inked around the edges of the truck diecuts with a red chalk ink. Next I cut out the railings, happy holidays sentiment and packages in white cardstock for the truck (2 times for each)  and adhered both railings to each truck diecut.
Before gluing the packages to either side of the truck I inked over the edges with the red chalk ink and added a little washi tape to the top. Before adhering the bottom of the truck diecuts together I cut out two trees and adhered to the truck bed. Lastly I inked over the edges of the Happy Holidays sentiment and added to the truck bed along with a gift card.
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.  If you aren’t following Momenta on their different social medias you can find them at:

Snowflake Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back today a quick gift card holder project for Christmas! If you are into all things glitter but don’t like the mess. I am going to show you how to use embossing powder over a piece of cardstock to give it that sparkly effect.


I started by punching a snowflake from mint green cardstock. I covered the snowflake completely with Clear Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad and applied Opalescent  Embossing Powder to the snowflake and set with the Heat Tool.



I inked a snowflake stamp from the Home for Christmas Clear Stamps with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of White Cardstock. I punched the snowflake out with a Circle Punch and applied adhesive to the center of the stamped snowflake and sprinkled Winter Frost Glitter onto the image and gently shook off the excess. 


I cut from patterned cardstock the following cardstock strips: 1 7/8″x2 1/2″, 1/2″x2 1/2″ and 1/8″x2 1/2″  and adhered all cardstock strips to the front of the Mini Bag.

I adhered the snowflake circle to the center of the larger snowflake, added sequins, a flat back pearl to the center of the snowflake and glued the larger snowflake to the bag. I folded the flap over and add a mini clothes pin to the top of the bag. This will keep the gift card safely in place until  it is ready to be given as a gift. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating! 

    For You Gift Card Holder

    Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I want to share a quick gift card holder I created.

    I started by folding a piece of 6″x12″ patterned cardstock in half and place slightly below the cut line of the House/Pocket Stitchlit and ran through the diecut machine. I adhered each side together to create a pocket.

    I cut two roofs, two windows, one half window, one door and one chimney diecuts from patterned cardstock. I backed all windows with vellum before adhering to the house/pocket stitch lit  I also adhere roof to the top of the diecut. Before adding the door cut another piece of cardstock slightly larger than the door and adhere behind the door before adding to the house/pocket. Also add a sequin and a glossy dot to the door.

    I cut another house/pocket but cut sides down so it will fit into the pocket. I adhered the chimney diecut to the pull out and cut and add a patterned cardstock mat to pull out. 

    Next I cut a Book Plate and Book Plate Frame Diecuts from patterned cardstock and adhered the frame on top of the book plate. I snapped together the words “For” and “You” from the Max Stamp Pegz Letter Set and inked with Leather Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut out each letter and adhere to the book plate.

    I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Frog Ink and added water. I laid one leaf sprig  from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecut. and removed and let dry.

    I inked the leaf sprig completely with Top Boss Clear Embossing Pad and applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to the whole leaf sprig and set with heat tool.

    I punched two different size circles from a piece of patterned cardstock and adhere the smaller circle on top of the larger circle. I cut two medium flowers and one small flower from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. I applied a dot of adhesive in the center of both medium flowers and placed one of the flowers on top of the other flower and pinched both flowers in the center and shape.

    I inked the glass tray with  Pink Chalk Ink, add water and cover the small flower with ink mixture. Once dry I added a mini gem to the center of the flower and adhere to the center of the larger flower and glued the flower and leaf sprig to the circle tag. I created a bow with cording and adhere underneath the flower on the circle tag. I punched a hole at the end of the book plate, circle punch and the top of the house pocket and added cording to the book plate and circle and tie to the top of the of the house pocket.

    The last step to completing the gift card holder I cut two Bookmark Diecuts from patterned cardstock, put together according to directions  and added to pull out. This will hold the gift card in place. There you have it! You can change the theme of the gift card holder to a gingerbread house, beach house, haunted house, etc. You are only limited by your imagination. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

    I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

    Eileen Hull: Season’s Greetings Gift Card Holder

    Hi everyone! I am back with a quick gift card holder for this month’s blog hop with DCWV and Eileen Hull! If you are like me and you give a lot of gift cards at Christmas but don’t have them on hand or the wrong theme this House Gift Card Holder is the perfect solution.

    I started by cutting two of the house dies from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Collection. The lighter patterned cardstock I cut a part and adhered to the inside of the card (the cardstock that will be seen once the flip/door is open on the card….back wall and door). Next I glued the sides and once dry I inked the edges.

    I added trim, Ric Rac and button to the roof of the house and tied gold metallic thread around the button. From the cut a parts in the same collection I use my circle punch to punch out the snowflake. I adhered the top portion of the circle to the card, added a Dew Drop and sequins. This will keep the flip/door closed. Also from the same cut a parts I added the season’s greeting sentiment to the door and I adhered a dew drop and sequins to create a door knob.
    This is a very easy card to create and you can knock out several in an hour!

    Also I would like to submit this gift card holder for the following challenge:

    Robin’s Nest: Altered Snowflake Gift Card Box

    Hi everyone! I am here to share another quick Christmas project for the Robin’s Nest. I give a lot of gift cards as presents and it seems like I am either running out to buy a card holder boxes or my mom is always needing one. I try and stock up after Christmas when everything is half off but sometimes I can’t find those in the already picked over selection of Christmas items. I figured since I have this Bath and Body gift card box  why not alter it into something Christmasy/Winter that can be used for the season? 

    The more info on this project please go HERE.

    A Holiday Wish

    Hi everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? Me? No! Every year I say I’m going to be ahead of the game so I can enjoy the season but you know how it goes it just gets crazy busy and before you know it Christmas is here. Sigh…
    Well, I want to share two quick projects I created using this month’s cosponsor’s Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. Lets get started.

    I started with a Christmas card envelope that I messed up. Instead of throwing it away I decided I wanted to use it as a pocket for a journal…the flap is actually on the end of the envelope which will make it easy to put memorabilia in it. 

    For more info and photos please be sure to hop on over to the Altered Pages blog!

    Enjoying a Dog Gone Good Day

    Hi everyone! I created a card for my son’s girlfriend. Her birthday was yesterday and we won’t be getting together until later on but I just had to share. 🙂
    She fosters dogs until she can find a forever home so I thought I would do something in a dog theme for her. 
    I cut a 6″x6″ piece of striped cardstock for the front of the card, cut a 5 1/2″x5 1/2″ piece of Gold and Pink Daisy Glitter Cardstock, inked the edges and then adhered to the base. Next I printed out the dog digi image and fussy cut it out, stamped the “enjoy” sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock and then I glued cut frames of cardstock for the sentiment and dog image, adhered each to the frame and then to the base. I finished off with punched flowers which I shaped, butterfly, ribbon, baker’s twine and dew drops.

    The easel I cut a 6″x 11″ piece of cardstock and folded at 4″, 4″, 1″, 1″, 1″ and I glued the 1″ flap to the back of the 4″ flap to create an easel. I cut from the leftover cardstock a pocket which I added glue to three of the sides and placed on the back of the easel. Next I adhered the card base to the easel and waaa-laaa! I simply and fun card! 🙂

    I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
    Word Art Wednesday-Anything Goes

    White Mice and Buttons

    Altered Pages Design Team 
    has joined the
    Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog 
    Design Team for Challenge #14 
    Button It in a UP Blog Hop! 

    Crafters of every stripe are button hoarders! Buttons are pretty, inexpensive, and extremely versatile. If you are a card maker, quilter, layout artist, or anything in between, you probably have a button hoard! Buttons come in many sizes, styles, shapes, and colors, plus they are easy to store…usually in cute containers! Pull out those bins of buttons and use some of them for your challenge project!  You can participate in the Craft Hoarders Challenge and win a prize from the blog sponsor… Altered Pages!

    I admit it! I have tons of buttons stored in jars, boxes and even little baggies from the many swaps I have participated in the past and for me it is sometimes hard to turn loose of them and use them in my projects. But I would like to share a quick gift card holder/wall decoration that is easy to create using buttons and an empty toilet paper roll.  Are you ready to get started? 🙂

    First off I painted the toilet paper roll inside and out. Once dry dry I flattened the roll which I ran it through my Sizzix die cutting machine to flatten it but if you don’t have one you can use a bone folder to get crisp edges. I used the Tim Holtz Scallops die on the bottom of the TP roll and the top I embossed with Geometric Ring embossing folder. Then I applied mod lodge on the outside, let dry and the inside the scalloped bottom added a thin line of mod lodge and clipped together with clothes pin and let dry.

    Next I adhered a ban of cardstock from the Happy Travels Paper Pad right below the embossing on the TP roll, added lace, ribbon and seam binding bow to the outer edge of the roll. I cut a 10″ piece of seam binding for the handle and adhered each end to the inside of the roll. Then I finished it off with flowers that I punched out from  one of the Text Pages, shaped just a little, layered and adhered together and topped off with hemp cord and a button.

    I cut one of the Victorian Labels out and glued to a piece of cardstock, added gathered lace, hemp cord and  buttons in various spots along with a couple of paper flowers to finish off this re-purposed and now useful project.

    I hope you have enjoyed my project and if you have any questions please let me know.

    Supplies Used:

    Altered Pages: Glitz-Happy Travels Paper Pad, Text Pages, Victorian Labels AP-1303, Dyeable Seam Binding, Dew Drops
    Sizzix: Tim Holtz- Scallops die, Cuttlebug: Geometric Embossing Folder, Hemp Cord, Lace,  Ribbon, Buttons, Acrylic Paint, Flower Punch, Chalk Ink
