Well, it's that time of the year for gift gifting... and for many families that begins with the Thanksgiving holiday if you're trying to fit in all the families on both sides and extended ones.. so we've put together a great hop today with plenty of ideas to make those gift cards look like a million bucks! I personally love gift cards... no hassle in returns, wrong sizes, etc. and with the ability to buy cards for even Visa and/or MasterCard, how could your gift even be considered to be regifted!
They will surely find something they want or need..
For hopping today, we have a gift for some lucky person. A 17.95 value Close To My Heart Merry and Bright Holiday Stamp set. You'll have a great little set to make your Holiday cards, gift tags, or other décor. A winner will be chosen by Nov. 6th so I can get this in the mail and off to the winner in plenty of time!.

Now let's get hopping! You should have started with: Janet's Creative World which is exactly where you are!
 
I used a Sizzix Card base die to cut out a 12 inch card base. I didn't run it all the way through so it couldn't cut off the last few inches. I then folded the middle up, making score lines at 3 1/2 on each end (valley), and then a middle line at 2 1/2 inches between those, folding the middle sections up (mountain) and then using a Stampin Up Label punch to cut the middle section out so the gift card could slip in. Don't adhere the middle section together except on the very edges so it's open for the card.  In the bottom photo I stamped a sentiment. Made the belly band and used the scalloped punch and a circle punch to cover the joint. All papers and stamps are Stampin Up (I'm in a stamp club.. and yes I know I sell CTMH, but sometimes, it's good to broaden your horizons.. or my OCD that makes me want it all!! :)
The sentiment says; "Hoping your Christmas is trimmed with the love and warmth of family and friends". As is my wish for each of you stopping by today.
 

 
 This was so simple, and since we give out a lot of gift cards, I can whip up my supply in no time!
 
Now you're off to:
 
Thanks for hopping with us today!
