Hi there! It's Laura from Make Life Lovely here with two cute ways to say I love you to your family and friends this Valentine's Day!
I love all the new Echo Park dies for the upcoming holiday, and used them to create a sparkly gold striped gift card holder and card.
One can never have enough gold or sparkles, right?
Valentine's Day Gift Card Holder
To create the gift card holder, I used the new Sizzix Bigz Gift Card Holder #2. I made a Sizzix sandwich by stacking a cutting pad, the die face up, some pretty gold and white striped paper face down, and then placing the other cutting pad on top.
I rolled it through my Big Shot to get the pieces for my gift card holder.
To assemble, I folded on the score lines and glued down the tabs. The die set also die cuts a small card that fits perfectly inside of the envelope. I made mine out of white paper with tiny black polka dots.
I die cut a pink heart from the Love Silhouettes die out of glitter paper and glued it on the front of the envelope. I love how sparkly and cute this adorable holder is! Now all I have to do is stick a gift card inside and write a note on the card.
I'd like to make a big batch of these with all different paper patterns and colors and have them ready for gifting for all of the holidays and seasons. Who doesn't love getting a gift card, especially when it comes in such pretty packaging?!
Valentine's Day Card
I also made a matching card with the new A2 Striped Card Bigz XL die. This die makes it SO easy to make a cute card in just a few minutes!
I die cut the card out of gold glitter paper with my Big Shot, folded on the fold line, then glued the white paper with black polka dots to the back side of the gold front of the card. Don't glue it to the bottom piece, like I may or may not have done the first time... ;)
I love the scalloped heart in the new Layered Valentine die, so I die cut a white scalloped heart and a pink glitter heart to fit inside. I used some American Crafts Thickers to spell out "Luv Ya" on the pink heart, then glued it all to the front of my card.
Again, this card was so easy to make, and I love how it turned out! Show someone how much you love them with this matching gift card holder and card set for Valentine's Day!
