Morning, y’all! Happy Monday! I, for one, am hoping that we woke up to some sunshine and a little warmth today. The entire weekend was entirely too yucky for us – wet and nasty. It was the kind of weekend where you just wanted to roll over and stay in bed. Maybe with some kind soul bringing a cup of hot chocolate. And maybe a cookie.
Or twelve! 😉
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If not, but would like to see how to make the pop-up gift card holder we worked on, here’s the replay! Oh – and the last 30 minutes is all 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peeks! Just sayin!
If you go out on Pinterest, you’ll find all kinds of gift card holders – and several different folks with different ways to make this pop-up version. I took my guidance from Kristy Coromandel in Australia!
I used the cute Christmas Traditions stamp set and punch from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box in the Holiday Catalog to make mine – paired with some Festive Farmhouse DSP. Take a look-see:
But the fun happens when you slide off the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim belly band…
This one – and the others that I made last week and will show you in a second – are made with Festive Farmhouse DSP – but obviously you could change DSPs to fit a different time of year!
I used the Christmas Traditions stamp set and Punch – which come in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. When you buy that set, you’ll get the 6-sentiment stamp set, the Punch, a beautiful keepsake-quality 8″ square tin box to hold your supplies or creations, and a Call Me Clover and Read Red Classic Stampin’ Spot! Whoo-hoo!!
Each card holder starts with a 4″ x 9 1/2″ piece of DSP, scored – with your trimmer or Simply Scored board – and folded…
The solid lines are folded as “valleys” and the dotted line is a “mountain” – and it’s also where you’re going to cut to create the slot for your gift card! The video will show you exactly what I’m talking about!
My video sample used the Christmas Traditions Punch for the middle section, but you could use almost any punch that’s the right size. On this one, I used the Darling Label punch!
These are so quick to put together – then you can decorate all willy and nilly!
I used some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim for the belly band and bow – and some little Mossy Meadow pine boughs cut with the Night Owl Thinlits!
Take a look at some other holders I made!
I used a Galvanized Metal Button for mine – but you could use a True Gentleman Button just as easily and it would look great!
So…I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got some folks on my list who bamboozle me a bit when it comes to picking gifts! And – gift cards are always right. Always the right size. The right color. But…sometimes they feel (to me!) like I’m sort of phoning it in – know what I mean? On the other hand, a fun way to present the gift card helps to make it fun and a little more personal. This one – that pops your gift card up as soon as the gift-ee opens it – is really fun! And made even easier with the Christmas Traditions Punch Box stamp set and matching punch! Hope you like!
AND – the Christmas Traditions Punch Box is on SALE in the Year End Clearance! Check it out and snap it up, y’all!

This way – you get a sampling of everything and then you can decide what you want to buy whole-packs of! Makes pretty good sense, huh?
Check them out here and fill out the handy form to get signed up!
The Year-End Closeout is our chance to do a little inventory cleaning—and your opportunity to take advantage of special year-end deals on retiring and surplus items. During this promotion, you’ll be able to save on a selection of retiring and surplus items— and some are “last-chance” and limited inventory. I suggest you place your orders sooner rather than later, because supplies are limited and the Year–End Closeout ends on 2 January. After that, some of your favorite retiring items may be gone for good! Get all the details on my Stampin’ Up! Promotions Page!
