A Quick Gift Card!

Hi everyone, its me!  LOL!  How are you all?  It is my turn to share a little something over at She's A Sassy Lady and of course, here with you all.

I was catching up on some blog reading the other day and the Scrapbook Blessings Club challenge this time was to make a gift card following their tutorial.

Now, my mojo has been missing in action for a while now, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make something and share with you all.

This was so easy to put together and their video tutorial, to make this great gift card holder, is fab.

The papers are a new Recollections card stock pack called Christmas and contains, three satin finished patterned papers and 2 matt papers. They are beautiful.

The snowflakes were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo and a file from Designs On Cloud 9, called Snowflakes Galore.  I cut them out of some cream satin finish papers.  

To add some depth to the papers, I added some of the snowflakes flat.  Some were cut in half and a couple were popped up, along with the sentiment to add dimension.

For the inside I did the same papers and there you can see where the gift card is.  I did add a little bit of sticky to the inside fold (to the left of the gift card) just to secure the fold.

I wish you could see the lovely sheen of those papers - they really are beautiful.

I am so sorry I have not been about much.  I am trying to catch up on some blog visiting and hope to have a few more post to share with you.

  3. This is fabulous & gorgeous & I love gift cards holders!!! It's the one way we can make an "impersonal" gift more personal. Now in my opinion they aren't impersonal because the person gets to choose what they would like... Lol !! ;))
    But, anyway --- your design is fab !!

    I have a candy up on a recent post if you are interested. :)) xo

  4. This is beautiful, Karon. I love all the shots you took of it from different angles. The addition of the die cut snowflakes is brilliant. I may have to get myself one of those fancy cutting machines one of these days or years.

  14. This is a fabulous shape. I've never seen it before. It really is an elegant presentation with that beautiful paper.

  15. Karon, this is lovely! What a unique shape.. and so beautifully designed (of course)! The papers are stunning and I love the dimension you created with the snowflakes. So realistic. The interior is equally wonderful and I'm sure this will be loved by the recipient! I'm sorry your Mojo has been missing, but it looks like it's well on its way back because this is gorgeous. Mine is missing at the moment, largely because I'm worried about time. :( I don't know how it's this late into November... Anyway, I hope you're doing well, feeling sparkly, and have a happy night! :o)
