Christmas File Folder Gift Card Holder

Click here for Cuttin' & Stampin' DT Writing File Folder Card.
Please click here to enter Ch 14-6 Writing.

Created this Christmas card as a File Folder style card using my WeR Memory Envelope Punch Board in which I recently learned how to make a file folder style card with.

Made this a gift card holder. See Santa's eye on the gift card peeking over the top.

Used Kraft cardstock for both parts of card one in which is a Kraft pattern w/ music design. Stamped a Whimsical Design sentiment. Used Tim Holtz Stacked Words Christmas die in which I paper pieced the colors of green & red. Added a gem to the dot above the letter 'j' in 'joy' word.

Supplies List 

adhesive: red tape - to secure the bottom & sides of file folder
gem: Studio His & Hers
ink: Memento Rhubarb Stalk
paper: cardstock - Kraft, the Paper Studio Classic Christmas Kraft
stamps: Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun
Tim Holtz: die - Stacked Word Christmas joy to the world
tools: Stampin' Up trimmer, WeR Enveliope Punch Board
