As you may have already guessed…Dies are one of my absolute favorite products we carry! I find Dies really do add so much to a card. I am especially drawn to dies with stitched details. I think this is because I love to add details to my projects to make them a bit more special. Dies can be used to add interest by layering the shapes to enhance the focal point, giving a sentiment the perfect framed shape, to create fun elements and you can even use them to emboss. In the case of today’s project, The Stitched Stars Dies are the focal point of this fun Holiday Gift Card Holder. I chose various papers from the matte finish of the Highland Heather cardstock, to the brushed finish of the Silver Foil and the sparkling finish of the Ombre Specialty Paper to really bring these layered star elements to life with lots of great texture.

Today’s project is just one of the fantabulous cards we created at my November 2021 FMN (Forget Me Not) Class where I combined the Stitched Stars Dies and the Sparkle Of The Season Stamp Set that I hope will give you a little inspiration.
Send some holiday spirit with your handmade cards and projects this year with the Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set! This unique stamp set comes with a variety of sentiments that are perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas cards. Combine the beautiful imagery with the coordinating Seasonal Swirls Dies to create customized wreaths on your cards. It’s perfect for the season of your choice. For this project I chose to change it up a bit and combine the stamp set with the Stitched Stars Dies vs the Seasonal Swirls Dies. I love how versatile Stampin’ Up! products are. They really do make it easy to mix and match our products to create the feel you are going for.
Need more gift card holders than Holiday cards? To quickly turn your Holiday cards into a gift card holder, you can easily create a pocket on the inside to slide in the gift card or a little $ by adjusting to cardstock layer just a bit. For today’s project I extended the inside Basic White layer to create a pocket and then used the Basic Borders Dies to add a decorative edge. Doesn’t this stitched pointed shape really help bring the design to the inside of the card? I LOVE IT!
Have you given the Basic Borders Dies a try yet? Whether used alone, as a single border, or paired together, these Basic Borders Dies will add the perfect touch to your next papercrafting project. I highly recommend adding these to your crafting supplies if you do not already own them.
