Most of our family lives elsewhere and they are hard to buy Christmas gifts for. I do find a few things for the adults at our local Pecan Store but the teenagers, it's just best to get them gift cards. They know what they want and it's easier to mail gift cards.

I started my gift card holders using a Note Pocket die by FSJ. From there I added coordinating pattern papers and decorated!
I used a fun print from the Holiday Cheer Prints, the Whimsy Woods Die Set, and the Winter Build-A-Scene stamp set and its coordinating die set.
After stamping, die cutting, and adhering the name I added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust to make it pop! It really does!
I adhered the die cut tree to a piece of card stock and adhered it and the banner. A red star finished this gift card holder.
This 2nd gift card holder uses one of my favorite stamp sets, Gnome for the Holidays, and its coordinating die set.
I colored the gnome with my Color Burst Pencils and used my Stardust Clear Gel pen to add sparkle to the beard and Rowan's name. The plaid paper is from my stash.
I probably should have used Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust but I adhered the letters to the holder and just couldn't glam them up that way since they overlapped.
I really like how the beard (and bell) pop with the Gel pen. I tried my Wink of Stella pen but it was not working properly. I think I need to replace it.
Anyway, which is your favorite?
