A Different Gift Card Holder
I'm here to explain my disappearing act recently. Last week a very dear friend of mine died suddenly. It was a tragic accident and a senseless waste of a precious life. So everything went on hold while I dealt with the emotions that go with such a loss. The funeral was yesterday and sad as that was, it was also a celebration of a wonderful life lived. Now I must concentrate once again on Christmas being just a few days away - yikes!
Nothing much has been happening in the craft room, however, I have this little gift card holder to show you. I used Marina Mist c/s and matching dsp, along with some Real Red c/s on the embellishment. I didn't photograph the itunes card which fits a Real Red backing piece with punched 'slits' neatly.
I first saw one of these over at Stampin With Sue here. While I didn't follow Sue's tutorial specifically (my opening/closing is different and my embellishment is attached differently), it is very easy to follow and I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results if you give one of these a try.
Hope to be back with more in the next day or two and share some more Christmas goodies. Take care.
