12 Weeks of Gift Card Ideas ’til Christmas

Week 10.

I know, just don’t even think about it.  Just get ready NOW, so you will have time LATER.

In the meantime, what do you think –

Open a little further –

Several pictures to show how this DRY EMBOSSED SWING CARD just *swings* to action as a gift card holder!!


In these next 2, you see how it looks completely opened from the front –

And the back –

Pretty cool, huh? This shows how my (retired) greeting is under the gift card.

What I think is *unique* about this card – in the first picture, the Rhinestone Brads face the front, as they should. But, as you swing the card open, the Rhinestone Brads now appear on both sides of the gift card! Nifty!!

Supply List –

  • 122672 Warmest of Wishes (Hostess Set, Holiday Mini)
  • 102977 Night of Navy Ink
  • 124096 Snow Burst Embossing Folder 
  • Whisper White Card Stock
  • 100867 Night of Navy Card Stock
  • (retired) Night of Navy 1 3/8 Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
  • 113144 Rhinestone Brads

This was a FUN and challenging card to make. It was a bit tricky to emboss the *flaps*, but it adds SO MUCH to this beauty!

(Note, since I first made this card, it has become a little, umm, soft. Humidity, got to love it! The Snow Burst Embossing Folder impression is very intense and breaks down the fibers in the card stock somewhat. I think, given the time, I would have tried to recreate this and maybe layered the Snow Burst onto card stock. But, I challenged myself to create this odd embossed cutout and succeeded!) 

I hope you will step out of your plain jane swing box and give this a try. Let me know what you think –

Happy Givin’
