‘Tis the season to give gifts … and gift cards.
I couldn’t stop making these fast and easy gift card holders from Lawn Fawn. So easy to make using this great Small Stitched Envelope die.
Take a look:
The set also comes with the label (which makes a very cute tiny note card or gift tag), three word dies and some hearts!)
Here’s the inside:
You just die cut, fold, glue and decorate. Easy-peasy!
I have another adorable mini-tote die-based project, also from Lawn Fawn, so stay tuned.
(*This die was provided to me by Lawn Fawn for a magazine project.)

Would you believe I have never made a pop-up card? My goodness! It seemed so complicated to me … until I got the Stitched Hillside Pop-Up die from Lawn Fawn:
Of course, I had to play with it ASAP … so I started this card completely backwards with no idea of what I wanted to do. I just wanted to see how the pop-up was created. I cut the die from white card stock and attached it to a white card base, just to see how it fit together and how easy it was to construct. It was so cute I decided to go ahead and create a winter scene.
Here’s the inside:
I stamped and fussy cut trees using some old Hero Arts stamps and stuck them on. Of course, it was still too plain so I added some silver snowflakes (also from Hero Arts). And then the greeting. Totally unplanned; I just kept building the card.
I felt kinda dumb, because now I had a plain white front that would be difficult to stamp on. But then … ta da! … I watched this great Lawn Fawn tutorial and I loved the way Kelly Marie created a belly band for the front of her card! So simple!
And now I’m hooked! It’s not the greatest card, but it was fun and surprisingly easy — a good learning experiment!
Thanks for tuning in.
