Christmas Gift Cards and Bags

'Tis the season to give gifts, and it seems like I need little gift cards at a moment's notice!  These 3" cards are quick and cute - the perfect combination for this busy month!  Attendees at my annual Holiday Open House made these while munching on Sweet Pressed Cookies and sipping cider.

The first card was made using the exclusive Hostess Stamp Set called Four Seasons.  This set features one large stamp and one small stamp for each of the four seasons. There is a little bird on each large stamp, and this little guy has his winter hat on!  Can you see the bit of Dazzling Details on his side?

The second card is made using the stamp set Pennant Parade.  SO many occasions can be celebrated with this set!  On this card, the pennants are turned upside down to create a Christmas tree!


Punches make both of these cards a snap - scallop circle punches, plain circle punches, and pennant punches!  And because these cards are 3" square, you can get EIGHT of them out of a 12"x12" piece of cardstock!  What a deal.  Cute and cost-effective - what more could you ask?!

Add a cute gift bag to match ...

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
