Welcome back to the third day of October release reveals at Papertrey Ink! Today we are introducing you to Go-To-Gift Card Holder: Mitten dies and Mitten Accessories stamp set and dies + Grand Christmas Sentiments stamp set and dies + Feathered Friends Mini 16 stamp set and dies.
I started with stamping black snowflakes on white for the background and layered with some polka dotted Bitty Big paper.
The candy canes are inserted into a slit in the striped cuff of the mitten and this is where you would insert a gift card. At the time of taking photos, I didn't have any gift cards on hand. This holder is fairly large and is similar in size to the graduation gown from an earlier spring release.
I added shimmer to the berries using a Wink of Stella brush marker and added Christmas Red Stickles to the petals of the poinsettia.

I'm in love with this JOY die and the photo doesn't do the gold embossing justice! I kept it very simple and flat to make it a good option for mailing and mass producing. The kraft panel was run through a crimper to add a bit of dimension.

I went with a mini slimline card size to highlight this new mini bird. He is a cutie to color! I color blended distress inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface paper then splattered with large water droplets.
I can't seem to stop using these Sprigs & Sprays: Holiday stamps as they are so easy to arrange! I needed an elongated sentiment for the space and found this one from the Feathered Friends Mini 4 set.
