Stampin' Up! Night Before Christmas Gift Card Holder and Box

Night-before-christmas-santa-sneakYesterday's LIVE on Facebook featured some fun projects using the Night Before Christmas Suite from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. 

Unfortunately, there are focus issues with the video.  Since the quality is not as good as I want it to be, I chose not to upload the video. If you're "brave", you can catch the replay HERE.

First project is this card/gift card fun!

Night-before-christmas-santa-cardLooks like a fun card, right?  Don't you love that Santa?! Take a look at the inside...

  • The card base is cut at 4-1/4" x 11".
  • Score this at 5-1/2" and 9".
  • Fold over to make flap for the gift card as shown above.  Adhere to the two sides with Tear & Tape.
    Inside of card...
  • Very Vanilla is cut 4" x 5-1/4".  The Santa hat paper is cut 2" x 4".
  • Sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade
  • The  "From Santa" tag is embossed with Shimmer White embossing powder and die cut.
    Card front...
