Gift Card Holder

GiftCardHolder

Knowing I would need some gift card holders this season I made the technique challenge on the Oct Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com just that!! Two ladies have made cool gift card holders and I lifted Cpowife as she made one similar to this. I hope to make Karen’s version today or tomorrow if all goes as planned. Cpowife got the ideal from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts. But just as Cpowife did, I also changed the dimensions. I didn’t even watch the video so I don’t know if I did it right or not! But it’s made and I like it! I made these with a masculine theme in mind because I will need one for my Father-in-law and I think he will like this!

CHALLENGES:

  1. Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #168 – Holiday. I chose Christmas!
  2. October Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Technique category – gift card holders.

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Deer Friend @ Deedee’s Digis

Cardstock: Bazzill (Rainforest, french vanilla)

Patterned Paper: Scenic Route (Roxbury Fairland Street)

Here is my entry for this months Digi of the Month Challenge at Imagine That by Kris. I didn’t get to play last month so I was glad I was able to jump in again this month. I know the cat lovers fell in love with this so I’m hoping she has a dog version of a Christmas stamp coming too (hint, hint, hint). When I saw the colors in this pre-colored digital stamp I thought of a 6 x 6 paper pad (My Mind’s Eye – Merry Little Christmas) in my stash and I was right…it was perfect!! I didn’t get to us my 6 x 6 pads last month during the Sept Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com but was glad I could use it this month. I need to use up my growing stash of supplies!! I paired it with the sketch from Mojo Monday #420 and came up with this cute card (if I say so myself!!)

Pumpkin Girl Thanksgiving

I didn’t get to use this image last month during the Digi of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps because I just ran out of time. Well this month I thought she would be perfect to match the color scheme over at Scrapbook.com October Card Challenge. So my hubby colored her in photoshop for me to match the color challenge. I used I [heart} card sketches #123 at From the Heart Stamps as my inspiration. The paper had some green dots so I decided to use jewels to cover them up.

I have a lady at the retirement home that has a secret pal so she has a standing order for each holiday. So this will be the Thanksgiving card.
Inside: Wishing you the blessings of the Season. Happy Thanksgiving.

CHALLENGES:
1) October Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – color category – purple, orange, teal, brown, cream/white.

I’m so glad I have a wonderful husband!! He took time out of his day off to digitally color this image, Cornucopia, in photoshop for me so I could play in the Digi of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps. You can’t tell since the image is small but he even got the weave look inside of the basket.
