Simply Sweet Stamping: Gift Wrapped Z-Fold Gift Card Holder

Swaps! I love exchanging pretty projects and new ideas with my stamping friends! Each month my Simply Sweet Stampers team does a project swap. This month the theme is gift card holders. I wanted to try something a bit different but still simple for my swap card this month. I love how this z-fold card turned out! 

Want a community of stampers to swap with each month? Join my Simply Sweet Stampers team!

Make the holidays sweet with this fun and easy fancy z-fold gift card holder!

The z-fold for this project is like a card on top of a card. Just adhere to a single layer cardstock base with a Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer.

A small piece of the Poinsettia Place DSP adhered on 3 sides makes for an easy gift card pocket in the middle of the z-fold panel.

Simply Sweet Stamping: Mrs Claus Apron Treat Bag

This past week I asked my Facebook stamping friends for some input for this week's project--card or 3D project? They voted, I designed. I'm jolly happy with the results. Hope you enjoy this cute Mrs. Claus apron treat bag!

The apron was inspired by Jenny Hayward in Australia who created an adorable Stampin' Up! version using the All Dressed Up dies. I liked her idea so much that I had to try my own version holiday style! 

***FREE Project Kit this Week***
See below for details!
