Christmas wallet gift card holder

 
Happy Friday!  Kathy Jo here to share some gift card holders I made for Christmas.  The pattern came from CardMaker magazine "Happy Holidays" (November 2014).  Also in the magazine are two amazingly beautiful winter cards from Suzanne Cannon (pages 110-112) that you will not want to miss.  A cherry on top: Quietfire has an ad in the magazine for 20% off the rubber stamp portion of your order with the special coupon code shown in the ad.  Yay!  The magazine is in the newstands now so don't forget to pick it up!  :)

I really like making this wallet gift card holder.  As a matter of fact, this is my fourth and I have plans to make more.  Quietfire stamps fit perfectly on the wallet front and they look gorgeous!  
The blue snowflake wallet used Quietfire's "Christmas waves a magic wand" stamp.   It was embossed and layered on Spellbinders' Opulent Ovals and Floral Ovals.  Snowflakes, glitter and gem were added as shown.

The inside holds the gift card snuggly between whatever pretty paper you choose.  Unlike the outside which used mainly plain blue paper dry embossed (to ensure the lovely sentiment is the focus), the inside contains pretty patterned paper.
The pattern in CardMaker used a slide on/off band to close the wallet.  Instead, I went with seam binding to secure the wallet closed.  The seam binding was only adhered under the two larger outside sections- as shown below.
Here is a snaphot again of the closed wallet:
Two other cards made used a different color scheme and Quietfire stamp, "Hold on to The Spirit of Christmas":
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
