Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 13 + BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY!

NOTE: This blog post is part of a blog hop (WITH PRIZES!). Please scroll down for the blog hop. :)

Hi all! I apologize for postponing the Day 13 video in the Holiday Card Series until this morning. I hope it was worth the wait!

For today’s video I decided to create a gift card holder and an envelope for it to go inside of. This is a very simple way to created a gift card holder and it’s one that I’ve used over and over in the past.

The Gifting Fun stamp set from My Favorite Things was absolutely perfect for a gift card, don’t you think? I paired it with patterned papers from Simple Stories’ DIY Christmas 6×6 pad and some Little B Golf Foil tape.
