Feature Day with Your Next Stamp

Has Monday arrived yet again? Hopefully, many of you are already on holiday break and relaxing from the hustle and bustle! :)   Good news for this Monday... It's YNS Feature Day blog post where you have a chance to win a stamp set of you choice just by commenting on the YNS Blog!  How easy is that?!

For my feature post, I am using the Holiday Cheers set and some mini bags to create a gift card holder.

And here is the whole project open:

For the inside, I first measure a piece of cardstock that would fit inside the bag and then measured where the gift card would sit on that cardstock.  Using my craft knife, I cut the slits and placed the gift card in to be sure it fit properly.  I then used the fun stitched line die to line the edges of the cardstock and stamped the sentiment on top.  For the pull tab, I used the banner die from the Seasons Whatnots set and cut it in half so that the fishtail was at the top.  Then to complete the look, I used the Gingerbread house die for the gingerbread man and bow to finish it off.  I set it to the side and worked on the outside.

Using the open scallop die, I cut a piece of patterned paper from Pink Paislee with it for the base layer.  I cut out the mug with the Holiday Cheers coordinating dies before stamping the image on top.  Copics were used to color in the image.  The sentiment was stamped on the banner die cut out from the Seasons Whatnots collection before popping up the image and sentiment, as well as the snowflake from the same collection. The look was completed with a few gumdrops in Pine green and Hollyberry.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you were inspired a  little for any last minute gift giving you may have.  Don't forget to stop by the YNS blog to leave a comment and have a chance to win!!
