12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 10

Today's Project is brought to you by Gerri-anne!

Giving someone a gift card for Christmas? Why not add a personal touch with this multi-demsional gift card holder!

Most of the materials are included in the KnK December kit and embellishment add on.

I covered the front of the large tag with the GCD pattern paper and then glued the smaller tag...centered......on top of the larger tag.

I used Tsukineko All Purpose Inks to add a little color to the large Tattered Angles Glimmer chip Snowman and glued him to the front of the small tag. I also added a little Glossy Accents to the scarf, hat, eyes, nose and buttons to add some additional dimension. I used the same materials to create the little lantern for the snowman to hold. (As if a snowman would carry anything warm...LOL!......but I thought it looked cute!

I placed the gift card in the smaller tag and then added a personal note along with some paper embellishments inside the larger tag.

Final touch....glue the large Petaloo Snowflake flower on top of the large tag....being careful to line it up high enough so the flower does not cover the snowman's smiling face!

Tips: Do not use anything with so much dimension inside of the magnetic tags as this will cause the tag not to close. If you find that the magnet does not hold after completing your card...no worries! Just add a piece of coordinating ribbon to tie around the card to keep it closed!

Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!
