Evensong Gift Card...

Happy Monday Everyone!!! I hope you all had a great weekend and got to make some great cards on WCMD!!! :D I on the other hand didn't have any time to stamp this weekend. My SIL came and stayed the day with me on Saturday and we watched movie, after movie, after movie. Then we got together with some family and friends and took my husband out to dinner for his b-day. Then on Sunday we had lunch with my MIL, went to the movies, and did a little grocery shopping. So since I didn't get to make anything new I am gonna show you the gift card holder we made at my card class on Friday night.

Stamps: Merry Melodies (CTMH) Paper: Evensong dp, Cranberry CS, Colonial White CS and Olive CS (CTMH) Ink: Olive (CTMH) Accents: Cranberry Grosgrain & Sparkles (CTMH), Cirlce Nesties, Circle Scallop Punch (Paper Studio) & Velcro

I used the Evensong dp from CTMH to make this cute little gift card holder that I learned how to make at a unit meeting. It's the perfect thing for any kind of occasion (birthday, Christmas, etc...)!!! And how adorable would this look on your tree?!?! I cut a 4" x 8" piece of Olive CS and scored one end at 1 1/4" and the other end at 3 1/4". I then covered my piece of CS with Evensong dp and folded at the scores. I used my corner rounder for the top flap and rectangle punch at the top of the flap to add some ribbon. Next I worked on my image. I cut a circle of Colonial White CS using my nesties and stamped my Christmas tree in Olive ink onto the circle. I then used my scallop circle punch and punched a piece of Cranberry CS and attached my circle on top of it. To open and close the gift card holder I used velcro and attached it to my cirlce. On the inside I just added a piece of dp to place the gift card holder on and you can use removable dots to attach the gift card...easy peasy! :D I have a feeling I might be making these alot this year...LOL!!! :D I always find it so hard to shop for adults sometimes, so these will come in handy!!! :D Well I hope everyone enjoys their evening. I'm off to finish dinner and watch Dancing with the Stars!!! :D

Have a Fabulous Evening!!! :D

I just came across your blog as I was blog-hopping. I clicked on it because we have the same name, but then noticed we both live in the South--I'm in Louisiana. Your gift card holder is so cute! My favorite part is the bow you tied with the ribbon.
