TLC 248 Stocking Gift Card Holder

This week's Technique Lover's Challenge on SplitcoastStampers was the Stocking Gift Card Holder, a really cute and personal way to present a gift card to someone special this year. If you get stumped for just what to do for yours, you can hop on over and take a look at what other Splitcoast Stampers have done HERE.

Claire Brennan, AKA Waltzing Mouse found
HERE, has even provided a PDF file you can print directly onto your paper that makes this project a SNAP!! It even includes where to put the red sticky tape, taking the guess work out even the functional part! Thanks Claire!!

For my little stocking I chose the Designer Paper first that featured the lime green and light and dark pink polka dots...such a happy looking little pattern. I printed the PDF pattern directly on the lime cardstock, then trimmed it out. On the designer paper, I printed on the front so it would fit correctly with the back. Not being able to leave well enough alone, I added pink and green brads to the polka dots then Stickles in Crystal and Cotton Candy on top of that. Hey, a girl needs BLING right?? Because of all those brads on the inside that I didn't want to get hung up on the gift card, I actually added a piece to cover it all up and it made the gift card slide like a dream. The top of the stocking was 3 rows of pieces of matching ribbon adheared to red sticky tape, then added pink fluffy fiber going in the opposite direction for 3 rows. Top that all off with a cute little buttoned flower and silver thread to hold the tag.

Here's my list of supplies:

I think this is a cute stocking and really stands out with these colors... stuck at home after surgery (tumor removed from side of knee) and just going through blogs and yours stopped me with the cute stocking! Thanks for the idea and even went hunting for the pattern. Carol M in TX / carolswingster77@aol.com
