Outlines Rubber Stamps Challenge - Gift Card Holder

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a gift card holder.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!


I used to worry about giving a gift card to someone.  I'd feel guilty because it wasn't a gift, something they could open.  It's silly, really, because I LOVE gift cards.  I get to shop guilt-free when I get one and love that I get to pick!!!  So, to make myself feel better about giving them, I create pretty and innovative gift card holders to make the recipient feel loved.

I stamped the Season (D-315) image with Strawberry ink and die cut with a circle Nestability die.  I colored the stars with a copic marker and added Holo Iridescent Glitter Liner.  To hold my gift card, I made a small "library" card style pocket and cut a small notch in the front.  It's integrated into the design of the card... sneaky, right?

Here's a view of the gift card pulled out:

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  And don't forget you can join in our fun!
