Crafty Christmas Countdown #8 – Male Gift Card Holder

  • October 18, 2017

I originally posted this gift card holder for a simply sketched challenge last month. Guys are so hard to craft for and I had a few ask how this was made so I decided to add a tutorial to the Christmas Countdown. I think it would be good for craft fair items too.

I was really pleased with how the Early Espresso looks and how the Garden Green goes so well with it. I actually think I like it better then the original. Black and Red are normally my favourite colours so that’s a big shock for me. Lol.

I’ve had the hexagon embossing folder for a while now and never used it. I have really been missing out because it creates a lovely deep embossed look and it feels nice too. Plus it looks great either on the embossed or debossed side. When I showed it to my boyfriend he took time to look at it and feel it. He never does that so I think it will be a big hit for those fussy fella’s in your life. (we all have one, lol) The Quilted Christmas DSP is fast becoming my favourite Xmas DSP, lots of fabric patterns to choose from and not all overly christmas either so you can make these all year round with that pack and the stitched shapes just finish off the look perfectly to help it look like a little leather wallet. The magnet is a nice touch, I do like just playing with it, I’m a big kid really doesn’t take much to make me happy. Lol but you can use velcro dots if you prefer and the little monogramming (I think thats what its called) makes it a little bit more special.
