Gift Card Holder

Hello! Hello!

Time sure flies by! Christmas is in about two weeks and I am so not ready for it! I haven't even put my tree up!! I have got to do that this weekend!

Today, we have another wonderful challenge over at La La Land Crafts! Our hostess this week is Lisa! Lisa is challenging us to create a Holiday card or project using PINK and GREEN! I love this combo! You can never go wrong with this combo! They look great together!

Instead of a usual card this week, I decided to make a gift card holder. I actually need a few of these so I will probably be making more!

One of the reasons why I LOVE La La Land Crafts stamps is all the images are so fun and easy to color. Plus, it's so easy to cut out the image! It literally takes no time!

I was surfing and came across this blog (Kelly Chau) and was so inspired by all her wonderful creations! I am also amazed at how professional all her pictures look! I was like "WOW!". She's not only a talented crafter but also a professional photographer!

This gift card holder was inspired by one of Kelly's many creations. For this card, I used Winter Lala. I paper pieced her hat and her jacket and then cut out with round nesties. For the card, it's pretty simple. Determine what card size you want and then go from there. For my card, I used a 5.5 x 12 piece of cardstock. I scored at 2 in, 6 in, 7.5 in, 9 in. I folded and glued the two 1.5 inches panels together and then used a large rectangle nesties to cut out the slot for the gift card. This card measures approximately 5.5 inches x 4 inches. For the little belt, I cut a ¾ strip of cardstock and glue a ribbon in the center. I then glue my image to it.

I am entering this card holder for these challenges as well since it fits their current challenges.
