Gift card holder


Today I'm here today with Creative Inspirations Paints to show you a cute gift card holder I made for my son's birthday earlier this week.  He gets such a kick out of receiving handmade goodies from his mom.

I cut it with my Silhouette Cameo, the template of which included the shapes for the paper and the stars as well as the basic holder itself.  It even has a little hidden tab to keep it closed.

I stamped the striped paper with little Antique Silver stars and painted the larger red stars with Garnet, then I embossed some of them with Deliquesce Super Sparkle Red embossing powder and popped up the largest star.  Some red Jeweled Inspirations finished them off.

Thank you for joining me and don't forget our challenge this fortnight is Inspired By: Back to School.  See you there!

Happy crafting!

the perfect gift! Who doesn't love a gift card - but they are so much more fun, Shea, when a hand made gift card holder is sent with love. This one is wonderful with all the stars! Love the razzle dazzle too! xo
