Gift Card Holder

Ever found that it’s really hard to find a gift for a guy? I always find it hard, so when I came up with this idea I was wrapped. It’s a gift card holder and with the papers that I used to design this one it is perfect (I think) for a man. Just get him a gift card for his favourite shop and pop it inside – perfect!
The papers that I used are from Kaisercraft and they are Christmas designs, although you can use these ones all year round. I kept the design fairly simple with just a knotted black ribbon and Spellbinders Labels 28 on the front. I have blended the Labels with some Distress Ink and stamped with one of my favourite sentiments from JustRite Stampers.
Inside is decorated with the same papers and there’s a pocket for the gift card. It’s a bit hard to see in this photo but the card sits behind the strip of paper in the middle of the card.

August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was Glenda with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals. Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store. Here is Glenda's winning card The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean. This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!
