Stocking Gift Card Holder

Below is another gift card holder that I am making for the craft boutique.  Basically it's 2 stockings made using the Holiday Stocking die from the Holiday Mini - I cut one stocking using Real Red c/s, and the other using Holly Berry Bouquet DSP.  I used some sticky strip tape and put it across the middle of the Real Red stocking, and then attached the DSP stocking to it.  These creates the pocket for the gift card.  I then sewed the 2 stockings together using my trusty Singer sewing machine (I have had this baby since 1976!).  I cut a 12" x 2" strip of Silver Glimmer paper and ran it through the Big Shot, using the Northern Frost Die.  I used 3 of the snowflakes from the strip and attached a Garden Green button tied with Early Espresso Baker's Twine.  I cut out 2 circles from the Red Glimmer paper using a 1/4" circle punch, and attached them in the middle of the snowflakes using mini-glue dots.  I ran the accent stocking pieces through the Big Shot using the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  Next I added a line of Dazzling Diamonds glitter along the end, and added a saying punched out using a small oval punch.  I love the dies and how easy they are for creating some really cute, fast and fun projects!

I like the dp you used, the snowflakes, and the button. You have some cute patterns for gift card holders.
