This week the Honey Bee Design Team is showcasing Clean & Simple ideas for mass producing for the holidays! I created a set of four Stocking Gift Card Holders featuring lots of new (plus some previously released) Honey Bee Stamps products. I absolutely adore the Honey Bee shaped cards and think you will too!
The Stocking Gift Card Holder body of the stockings were die cut from Holiday Traditions Patterned Paper and assembled back to back. You will need to panels to create the body of the stocking. *Pro tip: Remember to cut the stocking back the opposite of how you cut the front so they go together!
The gift card insert, topper, and toe & heel were die cut from either red of gray cardstock. Toe and heels were adhered to the patterned paper stocking. The topper was glued to the top of the gift card insert.
I stamped “pull me” and an arrow from the One-Of-A-Kind Stamp Set on the top of each stocking with clear embossing ink and heat embossed these with white embossing powder. I love how this tells the recipient this card does something! This stamp set is a great one to have on hand if you love interactive cards.
Wreaths were created for the front of each stocking using the Joy Noel Wreath Dies. The wreath was die cut from brown and green cardstock and assembled as shown and then glued to the front of a stocking. Instead of die cutting berries, I adhered red Holiday Traditions Crystal Gems to the wreath for a touch of sparkle and dimension.
The bow from the Joy Noel Wreath was die cut from red cardstock and shaded with R46 and R59 Copic Markers, assembled, and glued to the wreath.
A tag was die cut from smooth white cardstock using a Gift Bag Card and stamped with a greeting from the Love, Santa Stamp Set. The heart in the word “love” was colored with a red marker. The tag was tied to the top of the stocking with twine.
Gift cards can be easily adhered to the insert with glue dots (and they are easily removed!).
