Christmas In July - Rubbernecker Stamps!

Welcome back!  Today up on the Rubbernecker Blog we're celebrating Christmas In July!  We're sharing holiday projects that are not cards and you are gonna find some fantastic ideas!

I've used one of the new Slimline dies and a few other things from the shop including that beautiful new Winter Bouquet layering stamp set to create a gift card holder that could hang on a tree!

  • I simply cut one of the scalloped slimline dies from white cardstock and scored it a little over halfway... when you fold it you can leave a little bit of a lip at the top like I did (or you don't have to).  I thought it might make it easier to have the gift card sit how I wanted. 
  •  Before attaching the two halves, I marked where the card would need to sit in order to stick up a bit and then used two sided tape at that point and down to where the score mark was so that when it was attached the gift card wouldn't slide down past that point making it easy for the recipient to take it out.  
  • Then I added glue to the scalloped edges and folded it in half and applied pressure to be sure it was attached.  (Again you want to be careful where you place your glue to leave room for the card to slide in... for this one I just added the glue to the scalloped edges).

  • I stamped the images from the Winter Bouquet set using my Misti and cut them out.
  •   Then I diecut my cup pieces (being sure to keep track of all the smaller pieces) all from white cardstock.  I stamped more winter bouquet images onto the edge of the cup... these weren't completely lined up which I thought gave it even more of a watercolored look for my pretty Christmas mug. 
  • Next I added some Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink to the edges of the cup.
  • The stripe pieces were glued onto the candy cane... lining them up first and then adding glue to each piece.  Fine tweezers are perfect for this job.  
  • Then I colored the strips with my Copic marker.  
  • I stamped the sentiment using some Color Fuse ink and cut it out and then attached all of my decorations to the front of the gift card holder using varying thicknesses of foam tape.
  • Finally I added a gingham bow; some rope was tied through a scallop hole for hanging and scattered a few sequins!
