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!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Christmas Trees Let Your Heart Be Light

Good morning and welcome to another week.  You’ll be glad to know that Finn had a great Gotcha-Day weekend.  Yesterday he got to ride to two DIFFERENT Home Depots – and go in BOTH times!  It was a dog’s dream!  Even the slightly rude dog in the second store couldn’t dampen the happiness of my kid!  I will say though that, whatever that handsome husky said…it was…not nice!  Finn got serious FAST!  He didn’t start it but…he was for sure going to FINISH it!  Whatever HE said back shut that other dog up but QUICK! 😉  All of which makes my “no sniffing or greeting on a leash” rule even more sacred!

So – my card today takes us back to Christmas (which is – yes…only SEVENTY days away! 😳) and the wunnermus Whimsical Trees bundle and coordinating Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP (one of my fave DSPs of all time – whoda thunk it?!?).  Take a look-see:
