Stampin’ Up! Whimsy & Wonder Joy Fold Gift Card Holder with Video Tutorial

Well – good morning, it’s Friday again!  House cleaning day (whoo-hoo!) and Day 1 of OnStage!  Last night was fun and we saw a lot of Top Performers recognized for their achievements this year!  🙂

And speaking of…I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to ALL of you!!  I was tickled sideways to find myself at #34 in the Overall Demonstrator ranking in the US for the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! year!!  I owe ALL of that to my amazing customers and Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! 🙏🏻🥰🙏🏻🥰🙏🏻🥰🙏🏻

If you were able to join me yesterday afternoon for my YouTube video, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not – but you’d like to watch the replay and see how to make this fun fold (with a hidden bonus!) – here’s ’tis!

I know.  I know.  HOW many times will I use the Whimsical Trees bundle and pretty Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP this week?!?  I’m sorry (not sorry!).  I just love it – and when I saw the sketch that I used…it was too perfect!  Just to mix it up a little, I DID use the Christmas Season stamp set for the sentiments – and it’s a fun fold.  AND a gift card holder.  So…totally different!  Take a look-see:

And here’s that sketch I was talking about – from the SugarPea Mix It Up challenge for November!

So – I saw the idea of using a Joy Fold card to make a Gift Card Holder somewhere on Facebook.  I carefully saved the post so I could give credit where credit is due but…it’s been disappeared!  🙁  Just know I wasn’t nearly clever enough to come up with this by my ownself!

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock that I scored at 3″ on the long side to make the large card base.  A 3 5/8″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″ on the long side, created the small card base.

I matted some of the snowflake paper from Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on Mint Macaron and adhered them to the front small panel and the large back panel of the large Misty Moonlight card base.

I cut a piece of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP – in silver-foil stripes – and adhered it to the inside of the small card base using Liquid Glue.  I cut a smaller piece and used the scalloped oval in the Double Oval Punch to cut a half-circle out of one long edge.

I used a thin line of Liquid Glue  – right at the very edge! – to adhere that piece to the small card base to create the gift card holder.  Note: I only put glue on the two short sides and the non-punched long side.

I matted a piece of Misty Moonlight Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on Mint Macaron to create the card front for the small card base.

On some Mint Macaron paper from the DSP pack, I stamped the tree image from Whimsical Trees in Mint Macaron.  Using a second stamp in the set, I added Misty Moonlight lights to each of the trees and cut them with the matching die in the bundled Christmas Trees Die set.  I also cut the cool “open” tree die from the same Mint Macaron DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three trees to the small card front.  Then I fussy cut a bunch of Christmas gifts from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP.  These are “piled” under the trees with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small silver bow from a piece of Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Christmas Season sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink and fussy cut it – roughly following the shape of the words.

I used my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the sentiment, then used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the small card front.

I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and then adhered the card front to the front of the small card base.  Note: the small card base opens OPPOSITE a “normal” card, so make sure you’ve got it oriented correctly! 😉

For the inside of the small card base, I stamped the second Christmas Season sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added the Whimsical Trees images in Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight – then I added a medium Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and then adhered it inside the small card base.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card to the back panel of the larger card base – and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Whimsical Trees images on the front…

…and more of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can’t overstate how much I love love love the entire Whimsy & Wonder Suite!  The colors in the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP are so much fun for the holidays and the images and die cuts in the Whimsical Trees and bundled Christmas Trees die set are perfect.  I borrowed a couple of the sweet Christmas Season sentiments to just slightly change up my message.  And…yes.  How cool is it to use a Joy Fold card as a Gift Card Holder?!?  🙂

I hope you like!

‘Sup, y’all!  How did the Fall-Back go for you?  It’s 7am here.  But really 8.  So – you should be wide-awake and perky!  Your dogs and cats and ponies are looking at you like – what the HECK!! – but…YOU got an extra hour of sleep.
