Double Project Wednesday: Perfect Pets Gift Box & Split Front Card with Sweet Little Stockings from Stampin’ Up!®


Sometimes the packaging is just as much the gift as the treat inside. Whether you fill your Sweet Stockings Suite Collection (156273) gift box with dog biscuits for pet lovers or greeting cards that have nothing to do with pets, the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set will give you terrific options for Christmas gifts and cards. I’ll show both today – a box AND a card, based on the fun fold Split Front Card Layout that I’ve been in love with this past week!


To add dog biscuits, just grab a Clear Envelope and stuff it with treats, then seal and add to your box. The Clear Medium Envelopes work so well for a variety of packaging – I always keep a package on hand.


And feel free to decorate the front of the box with any of the characters from the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper! I added the stamped and die cut Santa hat to the golden retriever from the DSP.

I’ve got a quick card to share today, too – part of my Split Front Card series (like the one I shared on Monday from the October 2021 Peaceful Christmas Paper Pumpkin kit)




How to Make the Split Front Card Design:

  1. Cut card base to 5 1/2″ tall by 7 1/2″ wide. Score at 4 1/4″
  2. Cut designer series panel for front to 5 1/4″ x 3″; cut DSP panel for inside to 5 1/4″ x 1″. Cut white cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 3 1/4″.
  3. Layer and decorate as desired.
