A Heartfelt Gift Card Holder

Hello Everyone!
It is amazing to me how fast Wednesdays come around!  Of course, Wednesday means I  have another Heartfelt Creations project to share with you.  With the holidays fast approaching (hard to believe, isn't it?) I decided to make a gift card holder using a stamp from the gorgeous Burst of Splendor Collection.

I used a gold and white color scheme to give my gift card holder an elegant look.  The image is embossed in gold, and I have used brushed gold cs and gold ribbon.  Detailed instructions on how to make this gift card holder can be found below or on the Heartfelt Creations blog where you will also find many more beautiful projects from the rest of the Design Team to inspire you. 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and have a blessed week!

Heartfelt Creations Products Used-

Dahlia Cluster Precut Set- HCPC 3548
Decorative Oval Window Die- HCD 710

Spellbinders Labels 9 Dies

Other Products Used-
Stampin' Up Brushed Gold cs, white cs, gold organza ribbon, Stampin' Up Vintage Wallpaper ef, Versamark, gold ep, scoring tool, dimensionals, Scor Tape

Score a 5 ½ x 8 ½ piece of white cs at the 2” and the 6” mark. Fold at the 2” mark and using Scor Tape, tape the two sides to the back panel. This will be the gift card pocket. Fold at the 6” mark. Cut a piece of gold cs to mat the top flap; adhere to flap. Cut a piece of white cs to mat on top of the gold mat. Dry emboss and adhere to gold mat. Die cut 2 Oval Windows from white cs. Loosely trace around the oval on brushed gold cs. Sandwich the gold cs in between the 2 white Oval Window die cuts and adhere all together. Trim any excess gold cs the hangs over the edge of Oval Window die cuts. Set aside.
Stamp floral image in Versamark on white cs and emboss with gold ep. Using a Spellbinder Label 9 die and the “Outside the Box” technique described here, die cut out the image (the leaves will be “outside the box”). Stamp the main flower 3 more times in Versamark and heat emboss with gold ep. Fussy cut out the leaves, leaving a little bit extra cs at the end of the leaves that will tuck under the flower. Die cut out the top of the flower. Lastly, die cut the entire flower with the exception of the leaves. I lightly molded the fussy cut flower parts. Layer the leaves on top of the original image using 1 dimensional to pop them up. Layer the full bloom on top of the original image, this time doubling up the dimensionals so they are twice as thick. Lastly, using 1 thickness of dimensionals, adhere the top of the flower to the layered image.
Wrap organza ribbon around top flap and adhere to center of card front (main image panel will cover it up). Adhere the Oval Window/Gold cs piece to the top flap. Adhere the floral image panel to the Oval Window.


  1. Beautiful. Love the dry/heat embossing.

  2. I followed a link from Heartfelt Creations...fabulous flowers! This card has such a sophisticated styling...thank you for this inspiration.

  3. It's amazing to me how much those dahlias look like poinsettias when they are done in gold and white. That was an inspired choice of colors. This is elegant...and the design is fab! I'm going to make some of these! Thanks!
