Yummy Gingerbread & Peppermint Gift Card Holder

Today wraps up my eight days of the Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite over the last two weeks here on my blog. I hope I've inspired you, and shown you a wide variety of projects you can make with this fabulous Suite. 

Everyone needs a Holiday Gift Card Holder! GCH's have become one of the easiest ways to give a loved one who has everything, a special treat! But you still want to make an impact with your gift, so this great holder would do the trick!

The flap is made with the largest Seasonal Labels Dies scored at one end and attached to the backside of the Basic White before you adhere to it.


I discovered that the gift card flap really wouldn't hide the gift card when closed, so that's why I turned it on end. It hides nicely under the Seasonal Label shape.

The mini velcro fasteners that I used below, are years old and I don't remember where I purchased them. However, our dear friend Amazon has something similar here. I would recommend you cut those 3/8" circles in half or even in fourths, so they will hold, but not rip the cardstock or DSP.


Products Used to Produce this Gift Card Holder can be purchased here:

Cinnamon Cider cardstock 
Basic White cardstock 
Real Red cardstock
Gingerbread and Peppermint 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP) 
Gingerbread Dies
Seasonal Labels Dies
Layering Oval Dies
Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set 
Real Red Ink
Multipurpose Liquid Glue 
Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Dimensionals and Stampin' Seal adhesive
Tiny piece of mini velcro (see Amazon link above.)

Don't forget to cover the outer flap of your Basic White Envelope with a piece of matching DSP that's 2-3/8" x 6" and fussy cut off the excess.

------------------------------------------------

Thanks so much for stopping by this week. Next week I'll be sharing the six card designs from my Stamp and Chat classes I'll be hosting this weekend. Come back and take a peek.

Perfect Pop Up Gingerbread & Peppermint Card

Ding-a-ling Christmas Gingerbread Cookies are ringing on this darling card using the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. I love how the card front has the gingerbread and peppermint right on it! I've been making fun fold cards this week. Today's card is an inside Pop Up inspired by LeeAnn Greff a while back.


I had to hold the card closed for the photo so it didn't spring open!


This inner pop-up is made with a 6" x 6" piece of Basic White cardstock. You can accent it however you like, but I think my arrangement is very "balanced" and pleasing to the eye.


Don't forget to cover your envelope flap too. It's made all the difference!


Shop for the Products I used in this Pop-Up Card here:
Cinnamon Cider cardstock 
Basic White cardstock 
Real Red cardstock
Gingerbread and Peppermint 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Gingerbread & Peppermint Dutch Door Fun Fold Card

Have you ever tried a Dutch Door Fun Fold? I don't think I ever have and it is really easy!
Here's my original design using the fabulous products from Stampin' Up!s 
Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite. 


Doesn't the decorated envelope flap just make this card set? I sure think so!
Using a trimmed-down Memories and More preprinted card, sure makes the front of the card look fabulous. The Designer Series Paper and the Gingerbread Dies make the "cookie" a nice accent.

Sweet Gingerbread and Peppermint Angled Tri Fold Card

I am really on a Christmas kick lately. Maybe it is a distraction from the pandemic. Or could it be that Stampin' Up! has designed the most "delicious" Suite ever? I think that must be it! Since I love to bake and travel, this suite is the best combination of both worlds. Memories of baking cookies with my mom and my daughter plus my German travels and eating lots of gingerbread while visiting there in November or December.

Maybe you would appreciate this sweet distraction this week to inspire your card-making. I plan on sharing four different cards using this "yummy" Suite.

This Angled Tri-Fold Card layout is inspired by Stampin with Lorraine's YouTube video. I changed it up to be a Christmas Card design using the Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite.




Here's the entire Suite below:


Products used from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog in this card:

Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set

Gingerbread and Peppermint 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Gingerbread Dies

Seasonal Labels Dies

Real Red, Garden Green, and Basic White cardstock

Real Red and Garden Green Inks

Tear and Tape

Red Rhinestones

Basic White Envelope with a piece of matching DSP that's 2-3/8" x 6" to cover the outer flap and fussy cut off the excess.

911 Remembrance Day

 Hard to believe it has been 20 years today since the terrorist attack on America. I will never forget that day. I didn't lose anyone I loved that day, but I feel for all those families who did. Grief is something you never get over, you just focus less on it as time passes.

Extra Sweet Cookie Cooling Rack Card

Today's darling card brings back holiday memories of my mother's giant Santa Cookies. My mom came up with this big 6" tall cookie design which she would make for all the kids in our neighborhood. Then my daughter, Krista, and I continued her tradition as she grew up. This photo is from 2006 on her holiday from college. We would make Santa sugar cookies and decorate them every December when we could.

 


Enjoy this 30-second video I made for Instagram about todays card, 


The Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack comes with three black and three silver cooling racks that are just so adorable. With just a little fussy cutting from the G&P 6'"6" Designer Series Paper you can have the cute cookies cut out and on your cooling rack easily. With the extra stickers that come with the Card Pack, you've got a fast greeting, plus the precious hot mitt and spatula.



Do you see the cookies in the paper collection above?


The matching kraft envelopes are strong and sturdy and will protect the cards you make.




Here are the four easy-to-make cards I shared this week here on my blog using the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. If you missed one of the days, Tuesday - Friday, feel free to go back and take a look.

Sugar and Spice Easy Holiday Card

I'm cooking up another easy card for you using the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack, and matching envelopes and card bases.  Plus with a little fussy cutting of the cookie images from the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6x6 Designer Series Paper, you'll have this cute card all done in no time!


I trimmed the "Sugar & Spice" 3x4 preprinted card and trimmed 1/4" off the top and the bottom, then adhered and positioned it at an angle on the card base. The rest was easy, just fussy cut the small cookie images and used a small circle punch to punch out the candies. Layer on card front with some mini dimensionals. Embellished with Gold Metallic Pearls. That's it!


Sneak Peek of the Memories and More Card Pack
