Vintage Holly Gift Card Holder for My Pink Stamper 12 Days of Christmas-Day 5 + A Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Have you been following the 12 Days of Christmas over at My Pink Stamper?  There has been some FABULOUS inspiration with videos, challenges and prizes every day!  Don't miss out!  You still have time to head over there and enter the challenges and giveaways.

On the 5th Day of Christmas, the project featured on My Pink Stamper is by yours truly.  So I thought I would go ahead and post that here as well.

I created this gift card holder in just a few easy steps (which you can see in the video below).  These are prefect for those last minute gifts....and so easy to mass produce.

I saw the sketch idea somewhere on YouTube and I changed the dimensions, folds, etc. to make it my own.  It's great to find inspiration on the internet and then take it and make a whole new and different creation with it!  You know the best part?  It fits in a standard A2 size envelope!

And of course, every great card needs some great stamps!  I used the My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas stamp set for the sentiment on this tag.  I thought the tag was the perfect place to feature this beautiful "Merry Christmas" stamp.  I love how the style of the font on this stamp goes so well with the elegant feel of this card.  Of course, there is another "Merry Christmas" sentiment in the Biggie Christmas set as well.  It is perfect for a more "casual" feel.

And just in time for Christmas, I've decided to have a giveaway!  Just leave a comment here on this blog post to be entered to win the My Pink Stamper Friend-tastic stamp set.  I will choose a winner using Random.org on Monday, December 26th.  Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and the true meaning of the season will be at the forefront of your heart, thoughts and activities!
