Reindeer Gift Card Holder

Yes, this is the 2nd post for the day.  I had a chance to have a crafty day with a friend yesterday so I have a couple extra projects to show you.  :) The current challenge at the Scrapbook Blessing Club is to make a twisted gift card holder.  You can find a link to a video tutorial on their blog. I've made these before and, for me, the greatest challenge is cutting the pattern paper.  I make a template but then turn it the wrong way when cutting my good paper. grrr I finally got it turned the right way and all is well.  :)

This version has lots of glitter and sparkle.  The green background paper has lots of glitter and the deer and snowflakes are covered with glitter as well (so was my desk).  The pocket on the front is glued shut. I had a bit of a seam where the two papers met, so, I used a strip of pearls to cover the seam.  The reindeer is popped up over the pearls and off the card.

After stamping and die cutting the interior left sentiment, I traced the inside edge of the die with a gold gel pen.  This added just a bit of sparkle.  The mat was die cut and then the edges covered with Versamark ink.  I embossed it with gold embossing powder and then while it was still hot added glitter embossing powder and reheated it to set it all.

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  DCWV (Heirloom Christmas stack)
Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers (Greetings of the Season), Studio G (Merry Christmas)
Ink:  Versafine (Onyx Black), Versamark
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders (Deckled Rectangles Large and Small), Michael's gold gel pen, Joee's Boutique dimensional stickers, pearls (The Paper Studio), StampCraft gold embossing powder, A La Mode Sparkle embossing powder
