Gift card holder and...


Hello again!  Today I had some down time and decided to try my hand at a few challenges. First I did a gift card holder.  I wanted it to look like a gift bag since I knew there was a gift bag challenge going on (except I didn't use the right image!)  :)  I cut a strip of cardstock at 3.5" and scored it 1" on one end and cut 1" on the other end, then scored again at 4.25" at from each end.  I folded along the score lines.  I cut with decorative edge scissors on the outer flap.  I punched through the 3 layers with the Crop-a-Dile and then affixed silver eyelets on each hole.  For the front, I decorated with BG paper. The image is from SU.  The flower was made using a SU flower punch and a jeweled brad.  On the inside, I used the slit punch to make the gift card holder.  Finally, I closed it with a piece of hemp twine.

The next card is a Christmas card.  I decided to dig through some old stamps and found this tree and the sentiment.  I used the sketch from BG.  The paper is Eskimo Kisses.  Isn't it adorable?  I, of course, had to add glitter and sparkle :)  And I just love these brads!


Gift card holder fits the following challenges:  Cupcake Craft-Gift card holder, Pollycraft-Christmas, Everybody Art Challenge-Christmas,  Charisma Cardz-Anything Christmas, Colour Create-Red, green, and white, C.R.A.F.T.-Christmas gift, Papercutz-Anything goes, Crazy 4 Challenges-Punch happy and Stamp, Scrap & Doodle-Christmas.

Card fits the following challenges:  Pollycraft-Christmas, Everybody Art Challenge-Christmas, Charisma-Anything Christmas, Colour Create-Red, green and white, Basic Grey-Sketch (and BG papers), Secret Crafter- Christmas trees, Stamp Scrap & Doodle-Christmas, Bizzy Bec's-Christmas and lots of sparkle.  

So that's it for now!  I'm enjoying my long weekend...although I'm not happy it's almost over :(  Anyway, I hope to have more tomorrow!  Have a great night!
