A Stampin' Up! Halloween Card Display! Christmas Card Tutorial!

Happy Halloween!

Hope your day is filled with fun!
I am going to clean off my Halloween Display and put up my Thanksgiving and Christmas cards but before I do that, I thought I would show you it!

Here are a few more cards I forgot to show you!
Peek a Boo Frame card

Inside the frame:

Here is a little candy bar holder my upline, Mary Polcin sent me as a sample. Super Cute- it flips up and you put a mini candy bar in it!

Here is a card that my customer Lorrie sent me
She is a Wizard with our MDS and made this Digitally! She added the Ribbon and popped out the sentiment that she printed from our Scaredy Cat Digital Download. Super talented friend!

Have a wonderful day. My kids are teens now and I miss the excitement of when they were little. I am going to school though to surprise my daughter with lunch and a bit of candy!

Stampin' Up! Letters to Santa Gift Card/Candy Holders 6 and 7!

Good morning friends! I am late with my post today. It is going to rain here all day so I took the pups for an invigorating walk today. Loving this cooler air in Texas- about time!

Today you are going to get a treat! I will be sharing 2 different Gift Card/Candy Holder Cards for you!

Can you tell I just LOVE this paper! It is in the Main Catalog and until I began working with it, well actually playing with it, I had no idea how much fun it is! This is a "must have" package to get! 

I call this one the "bathrobe" card because...

..... it opens up!! I used a "Belly Band" to close it and the inside has a little pocket for your gift card and candy. I should have decorated the pocket a bit. The "Belly Band" is just sitting next to it for the photo.

I whipped up this "Pocket Card" as I will call it rather quickly. I used our Two Tags die to make the insert and tied it with Cherry Cobbler Seam Tape Binding. I stamped it with our stamp called Four the Holidays. As you can see, very little stamping has been done on any of these card holders.  I cut the little opening with our 13/8' punch and then used our Large Scallop Circle Die with our Glimmering Silver Paper.  I punched circles out of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and a bit of the Letters to Santa DSP. Very easy to make. I made up the dimensions myself for this. 

So what do you think? I love hearing your opinions so thank you for playing along! Are you liking these? If I made up a Tutorial of all the holders,  you be interested in purchasing it for under $10? 

Stay tuned for tomorrow, I will be showing the final card ( but I can't stop making more!) and have you vote on your favorite one!!

To purchase these or any supplies, hop on over to my Online Store HERE- you can do this at the convenience of your home in your PJ's!

Stampin' Up! Letters to Santa Belly Band Gift Card Holder #4

As you can see, I am having a blast making Gift Cards/Candy Cards with our Stampin' Up Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper! I just love making these cards that pop open. It makes it such a fun surprise!  

I absolutely love making "Belly Bands" I used our Big Spice Cake button for this, added our Baker's Twine and a little Jingle Bell

This is the card fully open. I used our Scallop Envelope Die to make the little pocket for the gift card. 

Put your Gift Card or Money/Check in and close it back up by slipping the band over the card.

Stay tuned for my Letters to Santa Gift Card/Candy Card Tutorial.... for sale soon!!
P.S. Please check my older posts to see the other Gift Cards I made with this darling paper pack. All of these are coming from just one pack!!
