Stampin' Up Snowman Magic Gift Card Holder for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop!  This week the Krew was given a color challenge.  I chose to use Sweet Sorbet, Garden Green and Basic White to create a cute gift card holder for the holidays.


The card front is a piece of Stampin' Up Sweetest Christmas DSP scored at the halfway point.  
I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Snowman Magic Stamp Set with Garden Green ink on a panel of Basic White.  I die cut a piece of Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Up 2022-24 In Color Glimmer Paper with Stampin' Up Snowman Dies.  I adhered the Basic White panel to the card front with Stampin' Seal.  I adhered the die cut over the Basic White panel with liquid adhesive.

I adhered the DSP to a Garden Green panel.

I stamped the sentiment with Garden Green on a piece of Basic White card stock.  I stamped the snowman from SU Snowman Magic Stamp Set using Night of Navy, Garden Green and Soft Suede.  I colored the nose with Pumpkin Pie marker from  Stampin' Up Regal Stampin' Write Markers.  I adhered the Basic White to the DSP.

I cut a panel of DSP diagonally.  I adhered the DSP on top of the Basic White with Stampin' Up Tear & Tape on the side and bottom to create a pocket for a gift card.

Thanks so much for popping by today!  Up next is Terry Lynn.
