Gift Card Holder Tin
This adorable tin is the perfect size to fit a gift card. They are available in the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog and come in packs of 4. Sometimes, giving a gift card can feel a little impersonal, but a festive box like this one can make it much more exciting!
Instructions for the Gift Card Tin
I stamped the holly and berries 3 times on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I colored the images in with Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I carefully fussy cut the images living a thin edge of white around the outside edges. I also stamped the sentiment with Real Red ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. Then, I covered the images in Versamark ink and dipped them in clear embossing powder. I heat emboss the front of each image 3 times in clear embossing powder giving it a really thick and shiny look.

Instructions to create a fold-out Card
I stamped the piece of 1 1/2" x 2 1/4" Whisper White cardstock with the front sentiment using Real Red ink. I adhered the two small strips of Heartwarming Hugs patterned paper to one of the pieces of Real Red cardstock. I placed them so that when I added the sentiment, it would appear that it was once piece of patterned paper. (Basically, I had a strip of paper that I could make work if I used it as two strips. This way, I didn't have to cut into a larger piece of the patterned paper!) I adhered the Mossy Meadow cardstock over this and then the sentiment on top of that.
I adhered the strip of ribbon to the inside of the other piece of Real Red cardstock. Then, I accordion folded the piece of 3" x 12" patterned paper and adhered the front and back panel to the pieces of Real Red cardstock. I adhered photos to each of the first 5 panels of patterned paper. Then, I stamped another sentiment on the piece of 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" Whisper White cardstock and adhered that to the last panel.
I cut the word Jolly from Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Playful Alphabet dies. I used Multipurpose adhesive to adhere these to the lower right corner of each photo.
I closed the photo card and tied the ribbon on the front. This little card is so quick and easy to put together, but the photos really make it something special!
Bonus card Ideas using the Christmas Gleaming Stamp set
I love this set and it pairs fabulously with the Brightly Gleaming patterned paper. If you missed this paper last year, be sure to pick some up now because it is so yummy-liscious gorgeous! The copper foil on the paper is so shiny and pretty. Plus, there is a punch pack to quickly punch out the ornament images.

For my projects, I created a card and a mini candy box featuring sun images made by piecing together basic die-cut shapes: triangles and circles. For both of these, I used the Stitched Shapes, Stitched Triangles, and Stitched Rectangle dies. I love the stitching on the edge of these dies as it helps give it a finished edge. To make the die-cut shapes pop even more, I sponged the edges. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
A couple of Ghiradelli chocolates in a sunny box is sure to brighten anyone's day. This box was inspired by one made by Connie Stewart. When you open the box, a sun pops up to reveal two Ghiradelli squares. What a fun and sunny surprise!
