14 Gift Card Holders for Christmas

Here's a list of 14 ideas for Gift Card Holders
from MyScrapChick.

1. Snowman Gift Card Holder 
Change up the look by using different cardstock prints for the scarf and mittens. Maybe some blue plaid for a masculine look, bright dots for young kids...This is a good all around design for any age group.

2. Santa Gift Card Holder
This card can be made up quick and suit any age group. A great choice if you are short on time and have several to make. Gold shiny card stock for the belt buckle adds the bling!
3. Bundle of 6 Christmas Gift Card Holders

Christmas Sleigh for your winter wonderland.

The new Christmas Sleigh is ready for winter crafting. 
It has a sturdy design so it can be used for decorating and/or as a gift box.

You will be happy to know too, that this is "not" complicated with a thousand tiny parts or a bazillion tabs to glue together. I was able to put together 3 Christmas Sleighs fairly quick so I plan to make up several more for the neighborhood this year. Now I just need to find some good Christmas cookie recipes.


Snowmen Easel Card Tutorial

Snowmen are the best part of winter. Here are 3 little snowmen to cheer you. They will happily send your holiday wishes and merry Christmas greetings to friends and families.
Easelcards are particularly popular because they are so easily displayed after opening. This new card comes with 3 printable greetings for the message panel or you can use a blank one to use your own stamped lettering.

All the pieces are layered and will line up with the backing to make it easy for correct and quick placement. We're trying something new on this design too. Adding small dashed lines to the faces will make it much easier to line up the eyes, nose and smiles right where they should go.

Easy DIY Fall Pennant loaded with charm

I just love being able to decorate for Fall and Christmas without spending an arm and leg. Being able to choose my own color schemes is probably the best part of paper crafting for the home.


 Fall decorating doesn't have to be time consuming or expensive. Start with this easy Fall Pennant and your favorite fall colors from your own paper stash. Hang this on your front door or along the fireplace mantel. It would even look great hanging from a wall mirror or bookcase.

This easy design can be completed in an evening.

A tutorial for the Rosette is included with the product download. It can also be viewed HERE.

 The tutorial shows how to assemble the rosette without having to use a hot glue gun, but I did use the glue gun to attach the rosette to the pennant itself and also for attaching the medallion to the front.

When all 4 pennants were done I punched holes in the upper corners to thread ribbon for hanging. Adding small bows between each pennant adds a nice touch. You could also add other embellishments if desired.

Hope you are having a wonderful autumn.



Love You To Pieces Skull and Bones Shape Card

So to be truly honest, as an adult I have not been a big fan of Halloween. Hold the tomato throwing lol Let me explain...

Don't get me wrong, when I was young, I LOVED to get dressed up in our plastic outfits. You know the ones with the mask and tiny holes for breathing and seeing. The ones that ended up on our head before we left the driveway because we couldn't breath or see anything. 

We would plan our route early and head out before people were even home from work, all in hopes of finding that house with the "big candy".
It was great, when I was a kid and my kids were little. Now I look forward to a quiet night at home with my light off. Yes I am one of those people.

Val on the other hand, buys candy in bulk and has to make a few extra runs to the store throughout the night just to keep the happy kids stocked up. I tell her that she is known as the "good candy" house and I am SURE the grown teenagers go down the street and turn their clothes inside out just to come back and hit them up again.
But she doesn't care. She delightfully fills their king size pillowcases with a bar or two, each time they come by. Like every 10 minutes. lol (want her address?)

So not only am I a party pooper, but I get scared easily. Like freaked out. I avoid anything creepy, including my reflection first thing in the morning. Trust me, some days...even you would be scared!!

So as so many people count down the days to All Hallow's Eve like it is some good thing, I dread the days of creating things that don't have pink cheeks and a smile.


ANYWAY, so here is my go at a Creepy Cute Halloween card that doesn't make me hug your leg when the lights go out. 

I tried not to add the pink cheekbones but what can I say, if you are going to put a dead body part on a greeting card, it might as well be cute...right!

By the way, I just googled All Hallow's Eve to make sure I spelled it right, and CREEP-CITY, that is some crazy stuff!! Why can't we change it to National Fluffy Kitten Cuddle Day and we go door to door and pet kitties.  
 Seems a little less dangerous, am I right!!??

It's always nice to have a liner for the inside message of cards. It gives the card a real polished look. Plus it allows you to freely use any 2 sided prints.

Your teens and tweens will love this one. Size is A2. Layered pieces include smooth cutting lettering with light hearted skull and bones.

Happy National Fluffy Kitten Cuddle Day!! Be sure to tell Val hi for me when you hit her up for candy!!

Hugs, Kristi

Simply Sweet Rubber Ducky Shape Card

This side folding Rubber Ducky Shape Card is simplicity at is sweetest. 

Rubber Ducky Shape Card fits in a square 5"x5" envelope.

Rubber Duck Card Quick Assembly Tutorial...

 This will go together fast with only 6 pieces. Fold the card on the scores lines.  The edges of the top layers were shaded using a dark yellow ink pad but this is optional.

Use adhesive to attach the top layers for the wing, card front, duck bill and eye. TIP: When adding smallish parts like the eye I find it easier to use my exacto knife to hold it while applying a dot of glue to the eye and then placing it on the card.  

Add pop dots to the back of the wing for added dimension and adhere to card.  

If I had to do a large number of baby shower invitations this would be my card of choice. It went together so fast and easy I was actually a little sad when I was done. So I made another one!! 

Add a satin bow to the duck's neck for a finishing touch.

Little Rubby Ducky easel card

Little Rubby Ducky Easel Card for the newborn in your life.

Includes 2 printable greetings in a pdf: "Congratulations on your adorable bundle of Joy!" and "Welcome to the World Little One!." Plus a blank shape to add your own stamping or message if you prefer.
Includes svg cutting files along with ai, dxf and gsd.
Quick photo tutorial below....

Card folds flat and tucks into any A2 envelope.

Quick Assembly...
After cutting out all the pieces gather them on your work space.

1. Fold card base forward on both fold lines.
2. Adhere "inner card base panel" to inside of card base.
3. Adhere waves to "white background layer."  Use pop dots on the front wave to add depth. 
4. Assemble duck layers, pop dotting the wing for depth. Add a small bow the the ducks neck. 

5. Spread adhesive to the front bottom half of the easel card as shown and attach the waves, lining up along the sides and bottom edge.

Photo above shows what your card should look like so far.

6. Add the rubber ducky, tucking it behind the front wave and lining up along the white backing. 
NOTE: There will be a small edging of white around the top of waves and duck. 
7. Adhere the bubbles in a random fashion that looks pleasing. Add pop dots to the back of the message panel.

8. Adhere the message to the inside of the card. Using the pop dots on the back of the message panel will help hold the card open for display.

There is space to sign the message card along the bottom or you can also write additional words inside the card. Use an A2 envelope for sending.

While this was designed as a welcome card for baby it can also be used as a baby shower invitation. Simply use the blank panel to add your party details. Another card for baby shower invitations that coordinates with this little guy is the "Rubby Ducky Shape Card."

The design comes with svg cutting files as well as ai, dxf and gsd. Can be used with the Silhouette Cameo, SD and Portrait, the Cricut Explore and their online software Design Space, ScanNCut, Sure Cuts a Lot and Make the Cut, Pazzles and any software that uses svg, dxf, gsd and ai.
