Gift Card Giving with My Creative Time!

Welcome, my friends!!  It's all about ways to present a gift card!!  Gift cards are very popular but can be boring to give. My Creative Time has many die sets in the shop that make it easy to glam up those boring cards but today I decided to use some brand new products that maybe weren't intended to be used as such!

I used the new Basket Tag Die Set to create my GC holder.  This was super easy to do!! There are two parts to this die. One that cuts out the actual basket and one that cuts out a solid layer that you can adhere the basket to.  The actual basket die cuts out the front panel separately so you can foam mount it easily to create space to tuck other images/die cuts into.

It's easier to show you with this pic...

The portion that has the basket weave stamped on it (from the Basket Tag Sentiment Set) is cut separately from the die.  All I did was add a thin strip of foam tape on the bottom of the piece and after fitting my gift card, added a couple small pieces to the upper corners. This keeps the card in place yet it's very easy to slide in and out!  And speaking of gift cards, you probably know by now that I never have these on hand so I made my own.  And FYI, the 5th die from the centre of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies is the EXACT size of a credit card which means it's the exact size as a gift card!!!

Of course, I dressed up the card using the eggs that come with the Basket Tag Die Set, the Stitched Grass Die and an embossing folder!!

This was super fun to make and shows you another way to use this die set!!

As I was getting this post together, the Basket Tag Die Set is currently on backorder but you can sign up for a preorder!!

Thank you for stopping by!  See you soon!
