Gift Card Holder
Cut two stockings in card stock and use designer series paper for the heel, toe and top cuff. You also need to cut two of the top cuff. Embossing stocking (I used Houndstooth)

Make the opening for the gift card in the front stocking with the word window punch. Place it about 1/4" down in the middle of the top of the stocking, then extend the opening on either side to accommodate the size of the gift card.

Use sticky tape to adhere the two stockings together, leaving a space for the gift card. Attach presents, ornaments, or other punch shapes like teddy bear or candy cane would be nice. I just cut presents on paper cutter and attached ribbon. Glue the second cuff on the back to cover up the backs and any adhesive from the ornaments and presents.

Determine placement of the cuff from the front so that it will cover the gift card. Insert a decorative paper fastener or brad. (I punched a tiny hole first so that the layers of card stock wouldn’t get all bent and crinkled.

You could attach a ribbon to hang from the corner if you like. Ohhh I just had a brain sparkle! Lace ribbon would be so pretty on the first one, with one of the Antique brads that I don't have yet!! Okay, THAT will be on my next order!
I sponged the Northern Flurry embossing folder with Crumb Cake ink.
