'Reindeer' Buster Sleigh Gift Card Holder

Good morning friends

I couldn't wait to try the new Sleigh Gift Card Holder, which is a brand new die by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. The card front is nice and simple ...

... because there is a LOT going on inside!

The sleigh has an embossed front and is stuffed with gifts. I used the gift that comes with the Sleigh Pop-Up Gift Card Holder as well as the one that comes with the Evergreen Pivot die. Some have a narrow strip of red card stock for the ribbons, and they all have red Glitter Dots on the bows. Ha, I added lots of Glitter Dots to this card for holiday shimmer & shine, and used my ECD fine point tweezers for easy placement. I love those tweezers.

Check out Buster the Dog ... he is sporting antlers and a glittered, glossy red nose. So fun!!  ANTLERS!! I am having so much fun with Karen Burniston's new Props 5 which includes antlers, Santa hat and beard etc. Oh - and those antlers make great branches! (Think snowman arms :-)

Karen Burniston's new 'Merry & Bright' clear stamps were used to stamp the words. I love how these three are separate stamps so you can place them where you want. Of course the MISTI helped with stamp placement.

I don't have a stash of Gift Cards here for giving, so instead I cut the rectangle from the Accordion Rectangle which fits perfectly. In the photo below you can see how the gift card tucks perfectly into the slots that cut with the Pop-Up mechanism. I will swap it out for a real gift card when I choose who is getting the card.

There is also lots of Glossy Accents used on this card ... the antlers and nose on Buster, and I also outlined the red sleigh layer with glossy accents. One of the fun features of the Sleigh Pop-Up Gift Card Holder, is the angled pop-up that cuts with it. Buster's antlers stick out of the side of the card when it is opened, but he tucks inside the card when it is closed!

I think a card like this will be perfect when our gift to someone is a gift card this holiday season.
