Stampendous Christmas in July: Peeking Pals Gift Card Holder

Elves, and reindeer, and penguins...oh my! No, you're not having heat hallucinations. It's Christmas in July! So while you are contemplating filling up your bathtub with ice cubes and parking yourself in there until October, take a gander at these cute little guys, ready and waiting to bring you holiday cheer. This fun gift card holder was created using the Stampendous Perfectly Clear "Snowy Short Stacks". This set reminds me of those books we had as children that were divided into thirds and you could mix and match the heads, bodies, and feet, to create something totally unique. I haven't gone that far with these little guys, but I do have them peeking over the top of a panel of cute plaid paper, with their little feet showing below. Behind the plaid panel is a slot to add a gift card, in this case for a barely-heard-of coffee chain, which makes the sentiment delightfully appropriate. Well, maybe not in July, but in December you'll agree with me. This set can be used in so many different ways to created so many fun projects for the holidays, so pick it up quick and get started. From now through the end of August, most of the Stampendous   design team are posting every Saturday, giving you wonderful inspiration for the upcoming holidays, as well as fabulous "Fran-tagey" creations with all the latest releases of images and accessories. Along with these posts, each of us are giving away blog candy. So hop around to all of these fabulously talented ladies and leave some sweet comments for your chance to win some sweet Stampendous images.

Snowy Short Stacks is so fun. We have had the fun of making a mix up book of the heads and feet. The sample is on the website under this product. Great sample, Pam!
