Beautiful Baubles Gift Card Holder & PCC304: Fancy Fold Theme Challenge

Good evening,

I was trying to think if this is my 1st project from the new Holiday Catalog? I think it is. I know I am behind myself. My summer has been so busy. Be that as it may, I am here now. Once again I have a Holiday Gift Card Holder to share. I swear that when I see new products, the 1st thing I look for is if there is a stamp set calling my name. It will tell me if I can get a Gift Card Holder out of it. I am still in love with this design because it fits the standard A2 envelope. I make use of these myself. I have family living in another state and shipping costs are ridiculous these days.

I have entered this into the Paper Craft Crew Challenge for this week, which is a Fancy Fold Theme Challenge.
I'll start with the Card Holder details, then I will post the video. The shopping list will be last in line with a reminder or two before that.

Stamps: Beautiful Baubles

I used my Stamparatus to stamp most of the elements on this Card Holder. I find it makes most of my stamping so much easier. I started by stamping the "Deck the Halls" in Tranquil Tide Ink on the top of the Card Front. Then I stamped the Baubles below that with VersaMark Ink. I did use the Stampin' Buddy before stamping to keep the Static away from the Ink. I Sprinkled Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder on top of the VersaMarked image. I then heat embossed the image with my Heat Tool.  I stamped the Inside Layer sentiment next with Tranquil Tide. Then I stamped the Sparkles on the Inside Layer with Pool Party. The Sentiment on the Sentiment Banner is Stamped with Tranquil Tide. I colored 2 of the ornaments with a Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker and shaded these ornaments with a Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker.
