Lattice Gift Card Holder

Lattice Gift Card Holder

Today on my blog I’m sharing a gift holder that I made using the Lattice Gift Card Holder die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set comes with various dies that you can use to decorate the gift card holder with a Christmas theme, birthday theme, or just about any occasion. Some of the dies it includes are flowers, cupcakes, ice cream cones, flowers, and a Christmas tree. The inside and outside of the gift card holder can be decorated. There is also a die to make the sleeve for the gift card to put inside!

There is a video tutorial on my YouTube channel. The link to the video is below.

Gingerbread Man Cards

Today on my blog I am featuring three projects that I created using the Gingerbread Man Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life.

Gingerbread Man Handmade Cards - The Stamps of Life

Watch my video tutorial for all three projects here:

Project 1

For the first project, I created a gingerbread man fold-it card. A fold-it card is an A2 sized card shaped like a gingerbread man. It can easily fit into an A2 sized envelope.  You can either have the card open at the top or on the left side. I chose mine to open from the top. The die set also has several die pieces that you can use to decorate the gingerbread man. Some of the dies include a face, clothing, icing, and more.

The card stock I used for this card includes ginger snap, powdered sugar, and strawberry. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Joyful collection paper pad for the blue plaid overalls. I added epoxy dots for the buttons. I inked the edges of the smaller gingerbread die cut with gingersnap ink. I think this added a nice touch. It makes it look like a toasted cookie!

Since this is a fold-it card, I decorated the front and the back and I think it turned out super cute!

For my next project, I created a gingerbread gate fold card. I used the largest die in the set and cut it out of gingersnap card stock. I used the second largest die and cut another piece of gingersnap card stock. Again, I used gingersnap ink and ink-blended the edges to make it look slightly toasted. I adhered those together and then added his clothing and icing.  The card stock is gingersnap, powdered sugar, and spearmint. The patterned paper is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints and adhered them to the front of the pockets. I also used foam adhesive to add three as buttons.

Supplies:

  1. Gingerbread Man Fold-It Die Set
  2. Ginger Snap Cardstock
  3. Powdered Sugar Cardstock
  4. Strawberry Cardstock
  5. Gingersnap Ink Pad
  6. Joyful Collection Paper Pad

Project 2

I used a gate fold card die to make the card base and adhered the gingerbread man to the front left opening. I used spearmint cardstock for the bow tie and pockets. The patterned paper I used is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints from one of the pieces of paper and adhered them to the pockets. I added foam adhesive to the three peppermints that I used as buttons.

For the inside of the card, I used a piece of powdered sugar cardstock. I stamped the peppermints as shown. The inside of the peppermints were stamped with strawberry ink. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the ChristmasTree2stamp and was stamped with spearmint ink.

Project 3

For my third project, I made a treat box using the Gingerbread man fold-it die set as well as the box-it die set.

I die cut and decorated two gingerbread men, one for the front of the box and one for the back of the box. Both gingerbread men were decorated identically.

I also used the box-it die which I cut with gingersnap card stock to match the gingerbread men. I connected the box-it die cut to both gingerbread men, added some grass filling, and some candy canes.
