Owl Punch Reindeer Gift Card Holder

Gift cards can be a great present for someone that can be difficult to buy for - I've come up with what I think is a fabulous way to dress the gift card and make a lovely personalised gift


Rudolf is made from the amazing Owl Punch, the little owl feet have been trimmed off and the nose is cut with the punch too. The antlers are made from the Tree Builder punch. I saw my daughter watching Mr Maker during the week, she just loves "googly eyes", so I opted for them rather than the Owl punch eyes in this instance.

I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch to create the Tag, then made a template to make the case to slide it into.  The heat embossed sentiment is from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set. 


I decided to mount the Gift Card Case onto a card so that we can write a message, but you could just leave gift just using the Case.

To finish off I gave the the white cardstock a touch of winter cheer with the Softly Falling TIEF - I just love this embossing folder - needed to cool down somehow here in Adelaide - just been through a December heatwave record with 4 consecutive days over 40C/104F and its heating up again just in time for Christmas!

I am just adoring this colour combo - Whisper White, Soft Sky & Cherry Cobbler, I never would have thought of it until a saw a similar combo on one of Brian King's cards which featured Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler & Whisper White.
