a2z December Challenge: Anything But Cards

Hello everyone! It is December and it is the month of celebration and giving gifts with joy. We as family celebrate some special events in December. We had decorations up and trimmed our Christmas tree. And our daughters are so ready for making gifts and gift wrapping time 😀

And a2z Scrapbooking December Challenge, the challenge is create anything but cards. For this challenge, I created these gift box and gift card holders:


I used WMRK 1-2-3 Punch Board to create the box and bow. And I created the gift tag using the Hero Arts Winter Forest Digital Kit and Hero Arts Stamps: Coffee Cup Tags stamp set. I added 3 red gems for the berries.


I also made several gift card holders with Hero Arts Merry Background Christmas Digital KitHero Arts Ornaments Stamp & CutHero Arts Stamps Vintage Christmas Wishes, and Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal


I printed out the backgrounds with copy papers and made them gift card envelope. Then I made the mini cards for holders. I stamped the background on the card with matching colors ink, added some sequins, silver threads, and stardust stickles for extra shine on the front cards.


And the inside of the card, I die cut the gift card holder flaps and tie up some natural twine to hold the gift card in place. You also can add some removable adhesive on the back of the card to hold it in place and then added ribbon around.

We are so thankful for a chance to give this month to celebrate the birth of our Savior and the King of kings, Jesus Christ.
