First..........thank you so much to all my friends and new blogging buddies for the delightful and happy b'day wishes!! You brought many smiles to my face today!!
Just a quick post as I reallllllly am trying to get better at getting some sleep each night!!! LOL This was a fun combination challenge card............the Technique Lover's Challenge from yesterday was a gift card holder and the Color Challenge today was Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, and Chocolate Chip!!! Hellllllllloooooooooo?????? Did someone just say Pink and Chocolate in the same sentence???!!!! LOL
It really was simple to make, but I added the same amount of layers to each side of the inside ('cuz they HAVE to be balanced, KWIM??) and so it would not even come close to staying closed!!! So I decided to add some ribbon and just make a little bow to hold it closed. This is one reason why you can **never** have too much ribbon!!! I used a new favorite stamp set, Cupcake by Hero Arts. I colored the cupcakes with the correct SU markers and cut them out. I went over them with Glaze pens and Stickles. Of course!! I didn't have the word window punch to make the gift card slot, so I just sliced it with a razor and then made the little circle punch cut. I made my own little pink gift card just to show how it would look. And now I have a Gift Card Holder ready for a special occasion...........I'm thinking of making several of these in various colors and themes to have handy!!!
Okay.........I'm headed to bed........and tomorrow I'll be working on the Gina K. party challenges!!! See you all later!!!
