There will be a giveaway each day & a winner will be announced each day! Example, winner of Monday will be announced on Tuesday, winner of Tuesday will be announced on Wednesday.....and so on! All you have to do is leave your comments on each stop for a chance to win a $15 Gift Card to the My Creative Time store!
ALSO, in addition to the $15 Gift Card that will be given away each day, Emma has a special prize that she will be giving away on Friday! It’s a few of her favorite things from 2018! I hope we ALL inspire  you this week!
We are sharing Gift Card Holders with you today!!  Gift cards are a super popular gift but pretty boring to open!  Emma has so many fabulous gift card holder dies in the shop that will make giving gift cards fun!!

I chose to use the Scalloped Stitched Envelope Die for my project today. Technically, not a gift card holder die but it works fantastic!!

I die cut this large die from some ivory cardstock and stamped a random pattern of snowflakes, hearts and dots in shades of aqua, pink and grey.  Love me some non-traditional Christmas colours!

To decorate the front of my envelope, I used the cute Santa image from the Santa Stamps Stamp and Die Set (say that 10 times quick!). The "to and from" come from this set as well which I placed on a stitched panel and a scalloped panel which are both from the Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies.

The best part about this envelope is the back of it!!  It is SO pretty!!

The set comes with this circle die to create "buttons" to wrap twine around.  I'm guessing you would normally use brads to secure these but I don't have such a thing so a few layered die cuts did the trick!  And look at those scallops and stitching!!! 

And as you can see, a gift card fits in perfectly, with room to spare!!

I LOVE how this came together!!  And I'm in love with this die!!  

I hope you were inspired enough to come back tomorrow!! 

***GIVEAWAY*** Don’t forget to leave your comments on all of our blogs for a chance to win a $15 gift card to the My Creative Time store!
