Here's one of my great finds which I'm sharing with my fellow crafty peeps! We all have those hard to buy for family members/friends and I found this really cute gift card holder and thought I'd share my take on it with you!
Okay, I struggle with primary colors! I rely heavily on my "browns" when I create cards and to be honest I purchased the CTMH Believe papers as a "challenge" for my personal growth! I have this great CTMH Share the Magic stamp set. I've never used it - again out of my comfort range! Whimsikle, fun stamp set - and I'm such a traditional old fashioned kinda gal! Between the stamp set and the Believe paper pack I was overwhelmed! Completely had a designers block! Could not see past the "red" - I'm also not a red kinda girl. Tones of red - yes, plain red - no! I started on Friday afternoon, put it down made a whole other card, tried again on Saturday and finished finally late Sunday night.
Here's the final product:
I actually had to break this card down into segments. Starting with the Santa on Saturday morning - Using Copic Markers I made up many of these Santa's. On the "highlights" I added CTMH Glitz Sparkle Gel, just to accentuate it that much more.
Here's the great part about this card and it's functionality! When it opens up. . . your gift card magically lifts up and it's nicely displayed in a little sleeve! There's no way your happy recipient will miss the presention of your gift card! :)
