Thank You Gift Card Holder

I hope you enjoyed the Blog Hop on Sunday!  Hawaii Ink sure does have a lot of talent!

Here is a little more information on the project I created for the blog hop.

Thank You Gift Card 1Here is how the gift card holder started out before making it extra awesome.  I used Coastal Cabana cardstock and cut it out to be 9-1/4″ by 5-1/4″.  Then, with the cardstock running in landscape orientation, I scored at the 1-1/2″ and 6″ marks.  Turning the cardstock into portrait orientation, I scored at 1/2″ on one side and 1/2″ on the opposite side.  I cut at the 1/2″ mark down to the 6″ mark and adhered those extra little flaps down with sticky strip.  Then, I stamped the big, beautiful “Thank You” in white craft ink using the photopolymer set “Another Thank You”.

Thank You Gift Card 2I then added some Strawberry Slush stretch ruffle trim and a little bit of Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper.

Thank You Gift Card 5To the inside, I used sticky strip to adhere a 3-3/4″ by 3-1/4″ piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, which was scored at 3/8″ to secure to to the inside top flap of the gift card holder.  That way, when you open it up…

Thank You Gift Card 4…the gift card slides up!  Very cool!

Thank You Gift Card 6You can adhere the gift card with a glue dot so it stays in place.

I hope you enjoyed this project!

Hawaii Ink Holiday 3D Project Blog Hop

Blog Hop header November 10 2013Welcome to the Hawaii Ink Holiday 3D Project Blog Hop!  Hawaii Ink is led by Lisa Curcio, a Founder’s Circle member (which is a HUGE deal in the Stampin’ Up! world!)  There is a lot of talent in this group, so be sure to check out all of the projects in this hop!

Here is my project for this blog hop.

Thank You Gift Card 3

I chose to go a little more subtle with my holiday gift card holder.  I plan to give this to my favorite UPS man for Christmas.

Here is what it looks like when you open it up:

Thank You Gift Card 4

Oh, I love how the card slides up when you open the gift card holder.  Such a cool 3D project!

**Please note, the colors are off in these photos.  I am not sure what went wrong, but the background is supposed to be white, not pink, and it made all of the colors a bit off.  The colors used are Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Strawberry Slush.  

I will post more details about how I created this project on Tuesday, so be sure to check back!

Card: PPA166 – Pals Paper Arts Challenge

I have never participated in a Pals Paper Arts challenge before, but I really wanted to try it out when I saw this color combination!



I really love these colors together, so last night I got to work, and this is what I came up with.



I’m not usually a “bling” type of girl, but I thought this card was screaming for a little sparkle!  Note the Silver Sparkle dazzling details around the smaller pennant.
