I just love the Sizzix Bigz XL Gift Card Holder Die (currently they are out of stock). These make creating gift cards a breeze.







Of course I just had to squeeze in the Reindeer and Snow Flourish from the Year of Thanks II Tin. The sentiment is from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Gift. The image is stamped on the beautiful shimmery White Diamond card stock from Paper Temptress.

Now on to more of a vintage Gift Card Holder. I used the Burnt Edges Technique on the background. Then stamped the sentiment from the Multi Step Hanukkah in Black Ink, and the Trees from the Multi Step Pines. After the inks dried, I lightly misted with Pearl Glimmer Mist.

Again, going for more of a vintage feel. I used Cosmo Cricket pattern paper for my background, stamping the sentiment from the Multi Step Gift plate in Black using a SAMJ. The gift is stamped on the backside of a piece of Cosmo Cricket paper, then cut using the Out of the Box Technique.

If you're still reading, I thought I'd share a conversation from my house yesterday regarding our family Christmas cards. Just a little background - we have the boys and dog take a yearly photo for our family Christmas cards, and as of yesterday, still haven't gotten around to taking it, was waiting on the weather for this years photo. We finally get a photo we like, I hand DH a stack of cards to sign (we all sign the cards, even the boys). He flips them over...

DH: oh those are nice, but they are all white.
ME: I know, I bought some this year, got a box of 18 on clearance for $2.00, it saves me time and money.
DH: I can't believe you bought cards, that's what you do.
ME: I know, just sign them.

On a side note, I did hand him a stack of cards I stamped too. I created a ton of Holiday cards this year, thing is I sold just about all of them, and at this late date, just don't have time to create more. I think I better start on next years cards now!

Have a great week! For more Kitchen Sink Stamps inspiration check out the other DT members blogs: Angela, Connie, Julie, Lynn , Makiko, Maria

These are so pretty! I love how rich they look Lisa!! And your story cracked me up - I bought cards this year - first time in several years!! They are photo cards but still . . . I'm feeling guilty for not making them but something had to give - LOL! :)

Those are great Lisa! Now wish I had bought that die! I almost broke down & bought cards too, but just couldn't do it. Of course, the majority are still not assembled, so they're gonna be late... and no pix this year either; just couldn't get it done.
