Gift Card Holder

The Try a New Technique challenge on SCS yesterday was a great little pop-up gift card holder - so easy!! A few quick folds and you have the perfect way to present a gift card! I thought Angel Wings Sophia would make a pretty gift giver and especially paired with this pretty Holly dp from Crate Paper.

I embossed Angel Wings with Gold Detail EP onto Mellow Moss cardstock and then used bleach in an Aquapainter to bleach out most of the image (I didn't bleach her dress). I then colored the image using Copic markers and added some MS Corrara Marble glitter to her wings and the bottom of her dress. The sentiment is available as a single (Merry & Bright) from Paper Pretties and was also embossed using Gold ep. I tied on some beautiful Cream Crushed Velvet Ribbon to finish it up!

Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Watercolor paper (SU!), Patterned Paper: Holly collection (Crate Paper), Stamps: Angel Wings, Merry & Bright (Paper Pretties), Ink: Versamark, Accessories: Brads, Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Corrara Marble glitter (MS), Circle punches, Gold Detail EP (SU!), Bleach, Copic Markers, Cream Velvet Ribbon (Maya Road)

It's time to start thinking about New Releases over at Paper Pretties!! On Monday December 1st, Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 7pm EST. There will be a challenge issued every hour so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Trim the Tree to the public as well as re-releasing Snowflake Kisses in RUBBAH. Hope to see you there!!

Also, don't forget about the Cutie Pie contest!!

How would you like to be Paper Pretties Cutie Pie? I thought you would!! All you have to do is make a card using your Paper Pretties stamps, upload it in the Cutie Pie Contest gallery at Paper Pretties, and Christie will chose a winner from the entries. Besides being able to call yourself a Cutie Pie, you will also win the entire release!! You have until November 30th at 8pmCDT to get your entries in!! Good luck!!

One more thing . . .

Don't forget that you only have until November 30th at midnight to get signed up for the Stamp of the Month Club and get the Sending You Love Sophia stamp before it is officially released in January.

Have a great day!
