3 Ornaments Card

I was making a couple of pop-up gift card holders tonight, and I got stumped on what to put on the front.  Lately I've been making rosettes, or lollies, but these were for men, so lollies were definitely out.  I love, love, LOVE Stampin' Up's Glimmer Paper, so I grabbed my ornament punch and this is what I came up with:

What's that you say -- Stampin' Up only offers red and silver glimmer paper?  Did I go rogue?? 
NO!  I used Sharpies to transform the silver glimmer paper into gold and green!  You can also use re-inkers to change the color, too, but I didn't want to wait that long for them to dry.

I wish you could see how sparkly they are in real life!  I hope the guys like them.  I KNOW they'll like the Home Depot gift cards that are inside! 

Happy Stampin' (and colorin' and punchin')!!

Stocking Builder Punch NOT being carried over!

Stampin' Up has decided NOT to carry over the Stocking Builder Punch in the next catalog!  I am very sad about that, as I was looking forward to showing you how to use the punch to make some adorable baby booties and a hobby horse!  Oh well...I know I have gotten a lot of use out of it this holiday season, and if you don't have it, contact me right away because it will only be available until January 2nd.

Here are two of my holiday cards that featured the Stocking Builder Punch:
