Penguin gift Card Holder



Happy Saturday Peeps!! It is a chilly Morning here in southwest MO, but I love it!! Great weather for hot chocolate, snuggling and stamping!!! All, being some of my favorite things!

Today I have another gift card holder for the Late Night Stampers Group challenge to share with you, while out and about yesterday I came across a gift card holder similar to this, and knew right away I wanted to make one. The one I saw was made from felt but I used some bashful blue card stock. I added some faux stitching to emulate the felt one. I had purchased this penguin die cut from Peach Keen Stamps awhile back and had not used it yet, so this was the perfect time to pull it out and give it a try!

I added the Santa Hat, it is not part of the die cut. I used the wing from the XL bird punch for the hat and a modified word window for the brim. I used my 1/4 inch punch for the ball at the tip of the hat, I wished i had a small pom-pom but couldn't find one in my stash!!

I added some drippy-goo melty snow along the top and the snowflakes are some felt ones I had already. The top is done with a 3/4 inch circle punch and my crop a dial. I added a bit of bakers twine and it is done, VERY quick and EASY!!! Gotta love that!!

Well, thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
