We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from Around the world that love to  Share what we do and hope that we can inspire you to create.  The theme for this Blog Hop is a Christmas Count down.  A Countdown for what?  Because I will still be isolated due to travelling restrictions, I am counting down the number of Christmas Gift Cards that I have to make .  Now that the Grandkids are older, they actually prefer Gift Cards.  The one today, is actually designed for the Adults.

Here is my Pull up Gift Card.  I will be sure to include the supplies below.

Christmas Season Stampin' Up! Stampin With Diane Evans

And here it is opened.

Christmas Season  Gift Card Holder Stampin' Up! Stampin With Diane Evans

I just love the way that the gift card pulls up.  Also did you notice the snow on the pinecones?  I like how the White embossing powder makes it look like the snow got trapped on the pinecones.
