The first one was made using Soft Suede CS and holiday background paper.  I cut the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and also with the 1" circle punch for removal of the gift card.  2-way glue was used on the top inside edge.  I let that dry so it could open and close several times if necessary.  I colored rhinestones with a red marker and applied to the tree image on the front panel for a little bling.

I used Real Red, Whisper White CS, silver and red Glimmer Paper for this holder.  I used the Tree Punch on the silver and red Glimmer Paper and the Scallop Punch on the Whisper White CS and the 1" circle punch on the inside edge.  I cut a 1" wide background paper for the belly band and attached the scalloped punch and trees to the belly band to hold the holder closed.

I made this ornament using the Happy Scenes stamp set
from the holiday catty and the Wonderful 
Wreath Framelits from the annual catty.
I got the idea from my upline and made a totally different design.

The Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item 139673) has been so popular that Stampin Up is going to do something that they don't normally do: they've decided to bring it back in the 2016 annual catalog! While bringing an item out of retirement is not something they generally do, they just couldn't ignore the fact that so many of these embossing folders sold out before the catalog expired!

I made this Christmas card using that folder.

This is a card I CASED from the Holiday Catalog.  This catalog retires at the end of December so order your favorite items soon before they are gone.
