Melissa Makes a Christmas Gift Card Envelope – STAMPlorations Mixed Media Tutorial – December 2017

Hi!  Are you in need of a last minute Christmas gift or 2? Still feeling a little crafty? It’s not too late to make a beautiful and useful gift card holder! I’m sharing a new tutorial at STAMPlorations.
I hope that you enjoy seeing the process I used to create this gift card envelope.

Poinsettias always remind me of how much my eldest daughter loves anything Christmas, and especially poinsettias.  She is one of the 4 greatest and most memorable gifts my husband I have ever received.

I used the following STAMPlorations products for this tutorial:

Christmas Flower – STAMPlorations

Doily Squares – ARTplorations Stencil

I look forward to reading your comments  at the STAMP blog. Please head on over for the complete tutorial with step by step photos and instructions.

Merry Christmas!
 Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,

“All About Christmas”
with an optional twist of GLITTER

Here’s my tag, using CUTplorations Manila Tags Nesting Dies.

I stamped the sentiment on the tag in embossing ink and heat embossed.  I also stamped it another time on masking paper. I carefully fussy cut the letters and words out of the masking paper and applied the “stickers” (masks) over the stamped image on the tag.

I also made several tree masks using the same method. Then I stamped the trees over the masked off sentiment and the masked trees. I finished by coloring with Zigs and embellishing with gold gel pen and red glitter glue.

 I also used the STAMPlorations Come Adore HimTypografia Christmas & Sketchy Yule Trees.

I’m happy to be part of this fun Tag challenge at STAMPlorations and hope that you will join in the fun.
