Here is another Stamp Club Project that highlights a gift card holder.  There are so many ways to present a gift card and to make a gift card holder.   However, I’m excited to share with you the Gift Card Holder that I designed and how I switched it up THREE different ways.  This way you can tailor it to the stamp set you are using and customize your design.  Yay!!  I love the flexibility in design and encourage you to create a Graduation, Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Happy Birthday, Thank you, Happy Father’s or Mother’s Day card.  There’s always a need for a clever gift card holder and why not make your own.

Thank you for being a valued Stamp Club Member.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial!! Blessings, Brandy

1. Cut a 4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock.

2. Use a Sahara Sand Ink to stamp your background words.
