Case the Catalog: First Frost meets Feels Like Frost for a Fun Wedding Gift Card Holder

Hello and welcome to my blog; for this weeks CASE the catalog I am casing a card from the Feels Like Frost Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  We went to friends from churches engagement party last night and we needed a gift card holder.  So I created a fun gift card holder in their wedding colors.  I just happened to ask last week at church what their wedding colors were so it worked out wonderfully.  No, I didn't have any idea I was going to be making a gift card holder for them.  LOL!  Here's a look at the cute little gift card holder that I came up with.


And here's the card that I drew my inspiration from. My inspiration came from the small square card in the middle of this image.  This image can be found on page 40 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Their colors are gray and navy so I just happened to have Night of Navy and Basic Gray cardstock.  
Since the back side of the designer series paper has silver and white I pulled in those two colors as well with Smoky Slate and Whisper White to round everything out.
To make this card into a gift card holder wasn't two hard.  I used one piece of cardstock.  I cut it at 5 1/2 x 11 instead of the normal 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  I did this because I wanted a pocket on the inside for the gift card to sit in.  And I didn't want to glue in another piece of cardstock when I could just cut it to size.  Here's a look at the inside of the card.

I decorated the inside of the card and pocket with the left over designer series paper from the Feels like Frost DSP that I used on the front with a little Night of Navy mat.  I also added some left over stamped images from the First Frost Stamp set that is also on the front of the card.  I made a little notch in the pocket with my 1" circle punch so that the gift card would slide in and out easily.
To finish off the card and the presentation for the couple I stamped the flap of the envelope in the same colors that I used on the card.  Night of Navy, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.  That finishes my card, I hope that you like it and that you may give this a try when you need a card for your next gift card.  Thanks for dropping by I will see you again on Monday for another fun project.

Happy Stampin'
