Season Of Joy Gift Cards

Hi my friends, I'm back to share more gift cards and envelopes created with the Simon Says Stamp Season of Joy Holiday Card Kit and no sparkly snowflakes on these as they are for the boys in the family. The card kit has sold out but the individual items are for sale separately HERE.


I trimmed Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock to create 4 - 3.1/4" x 6.1/4" panels and added a hand cut snowbank across the bottom. I applied Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink through the Simon Says Delicate Snowflakes 4" x 9" stencil. I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tiles Triangles Thinlits to die-cut the trees from the Rustic Vintage papers included in the kit and with 5 dies of each size, woohoo it was one pass through my die-cutting machine. I used my new friend, Tim Holtz Mini Trimmer to cut strips of varying widths from the left over Fog Cardstock to use as the tree trunks.
I fixed the trees in place with Distress Collage Medium, stamped the star from the Season Of Joy stamp set, inked with Fired Brick Distress Oxide and added Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Christmas Remnant Rubs, also included in the kit.
I trimmed lightweight white card to 8" x 7.1/2" to create the card pockets, scored at 2" and 5.3/4" on the longer side and 1" on the shorter side and trimmed away the side sections on the bottom to create a flap for closure.
I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tiles Circle Thinlits to create a notch at the top of each pocket and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from Season Of Joy, inked with Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink.
I added small strips of the Rustic Vintage papers to the pockets to co-ordinate with the cards, faux stitching around the trees and Glossies Enamel Dots. I matted the panels to 3.1/2" x 6.1/2" Mini Slimline White card blanks.



Just one more gift card holder to make and another Christmas task will be ticked off the list. Have fun with your Christmas makes.
