We have a timely challenge for you over at Just Add Ink kicking off today, and going for two weeks. Kim has us creating Gift Cards. So if you've got a few last minute gifts to prepare why don't you pop over and join the challenge? The design team has a bunch of inspiration to get you started.
I needed four gift card holders and matching cards which seemed a lot of work when time is in very short supply at the moment, What to do? Combine them of course. I used a fabulous tutorial by Diane Barnes of Colour Me Happy for a 'no cut patterned paper folder'. Sooooo simple, sturdy and fabulous!
Be warned - I'm a huge fan of non traditional Christmas colours. I should also add that these all look waaaaay better in real life - blame the lousy photographer :o)
Coastal Cabana & the little elf from Christmas Cuties, coloured with copics
A masculine gift gift card holder using long retired designer paper & silver accents
Island Indigo and Peaceful Pines for a teenage boy
Strawberry Slush with a beautiful big glimmer poinsettia - it caught the light and it's hard to see the two different glimmer papers, and the plain silver foil leaves
This is what the inside looks like - a place for your gift card on the left (I've popped a piece of c/s there for photographic purposes) and on the right there is plenty of space to write your message
This is what the back looks like - I've adhered the ribbon closure with a little blingy brad
If you pop over to Di's blog to check out her no cut patterned paper folders you'll see just how much inspiration I drew from her. Thank you, Di, for always sharing your talents and tutes with us.
Righto, it's too early to wish you all a Merry Christmas yet, so I will be back next week with another little Christmas treat share.
The Just Add Ink design team ladies will return with a brand new, fun challenge for you on Friday, 15 January 2016! Thanks so much for stopping by today.
