Welcome to La-La’s Weekly Wednesday Challenge. This week Design Team member Kim has challenged us to make a gift card holder. I’m also playing along with the Mojo Monday challenge blog to follow a sketch and make a round card.
The scallop circles were cut on the Cricut with the mini monograms cartridge. The size dial set at 5.5 inches. The inner circle I cut out of October Afternoon pattern paper, with the coluzzle circle cutting system. Bazzill card-stock and Emagination snowflake punches (probably available from the Punch Bunch now), layered up to give a chipboard effect. The sentiment on the front and inside is one stamp that I split up to use separately. Using Versafine Onyx black ink and the stampamajig (my extra right hand) I was able to position them both exactly where I wanted them. It’s a new stamp from Printworks E4004, Smile your heart out! I love it! I don’t think it’s on their retail site yet so if you’re ordering just add this number to the comment box or call in your order. Link to the retail site is in my blog sidebar.
Next photo is the inside of the card. I used the Tim Holtz tiny attacher to staple the half scallop circle to the back scallop circle. The front scallop circle is attached at the top with Tombow mono Multi adhesive. I scored the top of the back sc. circle at approximately a half inch and that allows you to open the card.
I used a Martha Stewart snowfall border punch and the aspen snowflake corner punch for the snowflakes you see here. I know…the only gift card I could find to stick in here as an example was from Cabelas!!! lol yep, DH loves to fish! I color in the boat! lol I do…it makes me nervous though…sure would hate to see my copics go overboard! lol Two kinds of stickles on the snowflakes…frosted lace and platinum.
Have fun looking to see what the other Design Team members created…last week’s “fancy fold” cards were awesome! We’d love to have you join us in the challenge this week….I hope to do better and get around to the blogs to see the entries.
