Little Gifts of Love


Hi everyone!  Christmas is getting closer and although I am finished shopping (yay!) I have not wrapped a single gift.  Today I made a couple of gift card holders that I can easily stuff into a stocking that makes the presentation a bit more jolly!
I have used the Papertrey Ink 'Love Lives Here: Holiday' stamp and die set for both of these holders. I love this set with it's homespun images and heartfelt sentiments.  Plus, the tiny mitten and stocking dies are too cute!
The first holder is like a card but you can slip the cover under the ribbon to close it and keep the present a secret. I used some very non- traditional papers from Stampin Up! but the colors were perfect.  For the front, I used the sweet Christmas tree die  complete with star topper along with an equally sweet sentiment.  I added some rolling hills and lots of glitter for the snow.
The inside features a gift card pocket cut with the My Favorite Things die and is decorated with another smaller Christmas tree decked out with crystals and a pair of darling mittens. The finishing touches are more glitter and some lace trim from My Mind's Eye.

The second gift card holder is simply cut from the top of a small paper bag and then cut, folded and glued into the size that I wanted.  I think this stamp set works so well with the kraft paper- gives it a very homey feel.  I used more of the 'Loves Lives Here: Holiday' stamps and dies along with the 'Tiny  Tags' stamp set and coordinating die also from Papertrey Ink to create this sweet little holiday banner. I added a couple of tiny jingle bells and lots of liquid pearls in red and white.  The border at the bottom, the inside tag and the gift card pocket are all cut from My Favorite Things dies. Can't wait to fill the stockings of some very special people!

Thanks for checking out my blog!  Bee Happy!!
