August Stamp Release Sneaky Peek #4 ~ Episode #236

Good morning & welcome to day FOUR & our last day of sneaky peeks! All of the stamps & Dies will be available tomorrow morning @ 8am pst HERE! For our "Finale" sneak for today, we are showcasing an "Embossed Gift Card Holder Die" & a coordinating stamp set "Gift Card Sentiments"! This has to be my FAVORITE & my most GO-TO die EVER!!! I don't know about you, but I don't even buy present anymore! I'd RATHER give a gift card to someone's favorite store! Why not have a die that you can make the most PERFECT gift card holder to put a smile on anyone's face!
I couldn't resist once again..... I made this card holder THREE different ways! I just want to show you how versatile & how you can get the most of this die! You can see in the video how it looks in actions! It's a larger die which is sized 6.25 x 3.75!

Here is the 1st Gift Card Holder I made which has a Gift card inside!

I made this Gift Card Holder holding a Treat inside!

This fits PERFECTLY a yummy treat!

I made this gift card holder into a Birthday party favor holding a lollipop inside!

Here it is opened!

Here is my video showing you everything I used for these AND you can see this FABULOUS die in action!;)

Now onto my FABULOUS design team!

  90. My husband came upstairs while I was watching the video and he said "oh you need that, buy that" What? He never tells me to buy any thing, but we give out tons of gift cards every year to our family and to his customers, so I think I will spend the holiday season making gift card holders! LOL, which is fine with me! I would rather make them then shop for them! And we will save money too!
