Gift Card Wallet Banner

Our new Gift Card Wallet Die Set has so many possibilities. We cannot wait to see what you create with it.

Gift cards are often the present of choice for your gift recipients. They love doing the shopping and getting exactly what they want. But sometimes a gift card doesn’t seem like much of a present to the giver. The new Gift Card Wallet Die makes each gift card a present and a presentation that will be remembered.

In a new video, Fran shares our wonderful Gift Card Wallet and the other coordinating Cutting Dies and Perfectly Clear stamps that make gifting so much fun. More options are on the way for the Holidays in July! This die set will become a must-have in your collection. It’s not on our website yet, but you can find it at your favorite, local stamp store, and on many online places that sell Stampendous Products. The links to all the products are in the video description.
