Good Sunday to you! The Holidays are approaching so quickly that I'm loosing track of the time! I've got to get going on my card making and gifts! Today's money gift holder is just the first of many to come this year. Usually I make at least 10 of these because I've got so many friends and family members that are really hard to buy for! Know what I mean?? Either they've got everything generally needed or getting they're size and color selection down is impossible.
Anyway, I digress. Today I got crafty with some great design paper, dies, chipboard and illustrations to make a super simple gift card project. I distressed the chipboard bird house then put some Wink of Stella on it for a glossy look. The Peaceful Dove Edge was cut and distressed as well. Placed in the center with pop dots for some lift and dimension then spatter brushed with Snowtex for texture. The illustration was watercolored with distress ink too! The Weatheredwood color was perfect for the tree on the image as well as the die cut and it brought in a great color tone with the reds from the paper! By the way, I embossed the paper with the Majestic embossing folder and sanded it down for that softening and mellowed out look of age.
The inside of the card, I used the smaller center piece of the Majestic Frame Die set to give it contrast and design to the pocket for the gift.
There's still time to join the November Anything Goes-Christmas challenge where you too could be the winner of a $20.00 gift certificate to the store!
