It’s never too early to start thinking about making your Christmas cards!  Here’s a simple, yet elegant card to duplicate.

The Gold Foil Paper die cut using one of the frames from the Ornate Layers Die set and Gold Embossing adds a touch of elegance to this card.


After stamping the sprig with Old Olive Ink, I went back over the little berries using the fine tip of Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend. This just adds a little more pop of color.

Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

I often find myself giving gift cards for birthdays, weddings and graduations.  I’ve had to get beyond the idea that it seems a bit impersonal, and realize often times it’s the most practical.  I love to be able to add my own personal touch by making a special card to hold the gift.  Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy card with a gift card pocket, yet it’s super cute and looks much more complicated than it really is!


I love the Timeless Tulips Stamp set.  It’s quick and simple, yet so very pretty! I stamped this tulip on one of the prints from the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper. It was the perfect variation of color for the flower.


The little hidden pocket on the inside is the perfect place to hold a gift card.



I’ve done a brief video sharing how to cut and fold the card.
